4 Reasons Braces Are Worth The Price

4 Reasons Braces Are Worth The Price

Many people choose braces these days because they see it as a natural part of their development in their teenage years. And even then, there are still plenty of adults who also wear braces. But what might deter many from investing in their smile? The cost.

Thankfully at John S. Walker dentistry, we specialize in braces and Invisalign® treatments, and in happy smiles. Here are some of our best reasons for trying braces out.

Brace Technology Has Come a Long Way

The brace technology of yesteryear might conjure images of mouths filled with metal and periods of extreme pain and ridicule, but the truth is that brace technology has come a long way since then. Not only have traditional metal braces been slimmed down and streamlined for a more covert and comfortable appearance, but there are also new technologies available that are even more comfortable and concealed.

Invisalign® is perhaps the best-known of these new technologies. Our orthodontist experts will handcraft a unique-to-you clear plastic aligner that fits comfortably over your teeth. Most people won’t even know you’re wearing your aligner!

A Better Smile

The point of braces isn’t always to correct potential dental problems; sometimes, they are all about getting that perfect smile! Braces will move your teeth into alignment during the period of your wear, giving you a perfect smile during and after your treatment.

Prevents Oral Health Issues

Braces can also go a long way in protecting you from oral health issues like tooth decay and gingivitis, as they bring hard-to-reach areas to the forefront of your mouth, allowing you to brush, floss, and rinse them better.

Your Teeth Can Move Around As You Age

In our childhood and early teen years, our teeth move around a lot in our mouths as we mature into adulthood. But even once you enter adulthood your teeth may not stop moving (though they might not move as quickly). Braces are designed to counter this unwanted movement by holding your teeth in place and correcting any errant developments.

If you’re in need of dental work, don’t be afraid to reach out to John S. Walker orthodontics in Boulder.
