Braces and Invisalign: The Best New Year's Resolution
New Year's resolutions almost always come down to making a change to how to you look or how you feel. Whether it is losing weight, changing your diet, reducing how much stress you feel or beginning orthodontic treatment with Invisalign or braces, at some point we’ve all decided that once the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, we’ll start working toward being the best versions of ourselves. Sometimes, choosing a few smaller goals yields more success, or a more general but measurable goal, like spend more time with family, can have an impact throughout the year. Often though, our resolutions are designed to make us feel better inside and out. If you’re concerned about your smile or overall health, consider making orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign your resolution this year.This year, why not resolve to achieve the following benefits through orthodontic treatment:
You won’t feel like you have to hide it any more. When you finally get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, you’ll find that you’re more outgoing, happier and you won't have to shy away from anything life brings your way. You’ll gain the confidence in your appearance that will help you go after your goals. How can you put a price on that?
Your orthodontic treatment will help you not just look better, but to feel better from the inside out. When your teeth are aligned and rotated so they travel in an optimum path, they’ll be much easier to clean. That doesn’t just ensure that your pearly whites stay that way but it also helps reduce the likelihood that bacteria or food substances will get caught between teeth. When bacteria collect in your mouth, it can lead to cavities or gum disease. Did you know that plaque buildup can even influence whether you’re diagnosed with lifestyle-related or heart diseases? Oral hygiene is important to the health of your whole body.
If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, you’re likely going to feel self-doubt about it each time smile or you’ll try not to do it at all. Neither of these is a great option and one of the most important reasons to seek orthodontic is to finally achieve a smile you can be proud to show off. Your smile is a hugely important factor in how you communicate with people, helping bond with others, improve social relationships, and even help you earn more money.With other resolutions, you really have to do something. You have to think about whether to swap out the chocolate bar for an apple and some nuts, or whether you should walk to run your errands instead of driving. With braces, once you’ve begun your treatment, you don’t have to think about them at all except to clean them thoroughly each day. With Invisalign, you’ll find that all you have to do is wear them for 22 hours a day. It’s as easy as that!What are you waiting for? By choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment, you can achieve your New Year’s resolutions: feel more confident about your appearance and improve your overall physical, and even emotional, well-being.
