Deciding to get braces is a serious decision; however, most people dealing with crooked or misaligned smiles want to feel confident in their appearance. If your smile isn’t as straight as you wish it were, then braces may certainly benefit you. Our Western Springs, IL, orthodontist, Dr. Joseph Kizior, is here to tell you more about the benefits of choosing orthodontic treatment and when it might be time to consider getting them.

Many children, teens, and even adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment. While it’s always good to handle misalignments and other dental issues early on, it’s important to know that it’s never too late to get braces to correct your smile.

Whenever you have questions or concerns about you or your child’s smile you should turn to our orthodontic specialist in Western Springs, IL. For example, if you notice that your child is developing a speech impediment or having trouble speaking due to a misaligned smile (e.g. teeth that stick out; gaps between teeth), then this is the perfect time to schedule a consultation with us.

It’s also a good idea to come in for an evaluation if you or a family member is dealing with:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding or overlapping teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

If you find that your bite doesn’t fit together properly braces can also correct this alignment issue.

What are the benefits of getting braces?

Getting braces can finally give you the perfectly aligned smile you’ve been looking for. You’ll feel more confident smiling and talking to those around you, no matter if you are around colleagues, attending a special event or on a date. It’s amazing how much your smile can impact your self-esteem, and having a straight smile will certainly enhance your appearance while boosting your confidence.

You may not realize it, but misaligned teeth can also increase your chances of decay, gum disease, excessive wear and tear and even damage to teeth. By correcting your smile with braces you can reduce these chances.
