Why should I get braces?
Smile with confidence
Our smiles are a big part of our identity and how we are perceived by our peers. Consider this—in a recent survey of more than 1,000 Americans (age 18 and over), 72% of the respondents agreed that people of all ages with healthy straight teeth are typically treated better in social situations than those with noticeably crooked teeth. Conversely, nearly half said that crooked teeth leave a negative first impression. With the discreet technology of Inspire ICE, it’s easier than ever to improve your smile and experience the difference:
- Confidence to excel in school, work and personal life
- Clearer speech for interviews, public speaking, etc.
Compared to some of the other ‘extreme’ cosmetic procedures available today, improving your smile is one of the most valuable investments you can make to improve your overall appearance for a lifetime. If you want straighter teeth but are concerned about how you’ll look with braces, ask your doctor about Inspire ICE, the highest quality aesthetic braces on the market. Their patented sapphire material makes Inspire ICE the only crystal-clear braces available. They’re not only discreet, they’re virtually invisible.
A straight smile is a healthy smile
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
- Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, providing better oral health. Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which can aid in digestion.
- Ideally aligned teeth create a more perfect bite, which can reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but also eventual gum disease and tooth loss.
When left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints, which can result in chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatment by a specialist to correct the original problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
Uncompromised results with Inspire ICE
Some advertised removable clear aligners may seem like a tempting alternative to real braces. However, clear aligner trays require continuous compliance and don’t move teeth as efficiently as real braces, so even the simplest crowded cases can take far longer to complete. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive correction, Inspire ICE treats even the most challenging cases such as overbites, underbites, and even crossbites with high-quality results, and in less time than aligner treatment.
Improving your smile is faster, more comfortable, and more discreet today than ever and has a dramatically positive impact, so the question isn’t why should you straighten your teeth, but why wouldn't you?
