For many people, smiling is something to avoid. Misaligned teeth, or a crooked smile, cause some to feel embarrassed, which prevents them from smiling. An orthodontist can fix that crooked smile and literally turn that frown upside down.
What an Orthodontist Does
An orthodontist is an expert in smile-making. Using braces, and other treatments, we can align your teeth and improve not only your appearance but boost your self-esteem and reduce pain or discomfort that can occur with an improper bite.
Chronic pain in the neck and jaw can occur due to an improper bite. Pain while eating can substantially reduce the enjoyment of food. If you are experiencing pain by simply eating, the chances of smiling during a meal are not very good. Orthodontic treatment realigns teeth and changes the way you chew your food. Now that is something to smile about!
Properly aligned teeth can certainly improve your appearance, but it will also improve your overall mental health. Embarrassment over the appearance of your teeth can lead to social isolation, which lowers self-esteem. Smiling has been shown to be a mood booster. Consequently, it releases dopamine and endorphins, which relax the body and increase feelings of well-being.
Many people worry about what they will look like during treatment. There are treatments your orthodontist can use that reduce the appearance of wearing braces. Therefore, many patients find that those around them are not even aware that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Accordingly, the eyes have been said to be the window to the soul, but a smile is a window to the heart! Therefore, Contact your orthodontic expert at The Schulhof Center today to schedule a consultation.
