When considering whether or not braces are right for you, there are several factors to weigh. Cost and convenience likely being the two biggest ones. However if you are contemplating these things, rest assured that yes, in the long run braces will be worth it all.
Perhaps the most obvious issues corrected by braces are a misaligned bite and self-esteem. A misaligned bite can make eating more difficult and chewing more tiring. As far as self esteem, something that may seem as simple as straightened teeth can improve your self-esteem and quality of life immensely.
Crooked, crowded teeth can cause an array of problems, but with the aid of braces, many of these can be alleviated. When teeth are too crowded, it may make them harder to clean. When straightened, it spaces your teeth out and allows you to brush and floss properly. This alone can prevent cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Likewise, straightened teeth can aid in reducing or even eliminating certain speech problems. Crooked teeth can make it harder to make certain sounds, therefore causing speech to be altered.
If left untreated, even one of these issues can become complicated and expensive to fix. Dental repair can be costly, and that’s why braces, which may seem expensive, can really be the most cost effective option in the long run. Don’t let your smile be anything less than perfect.
