Smile Confidently: Boosting Self-Esteem Through Orthodontic Treatment

It’s no secret that our appearance can have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves, and perhaps nothing has a bigger impact than our smiles. When you have a smile you feel proud of, you naturally find yourself feeling happier and sharing it with the world more often

On the other hand, if you’re insecure or self-conscious about your teeth, this can significantly hamper your confidence and self-esteem. In some cases, this can cause you to become less outgoing and prevent you from having the social or professional life you want and deserve.

Fortunately, modern orthodontic treatment provides everyone with the opportunity to improve their smile, building their confidence and self-esteem in the process.

What Issues Can Orthodontic Treatment Address?

Orthodontic treatment can be used to address a range of issues from mild misalignment of the teeth to severe malocclusions. In practical terms, it doesn’t matter whether you’re bothered by slightly crooked teeth or a much bigger issue such as badly misaligned teeth or a very pronounced over- or underbite, orthodontic intervention could help.

How Long Will Orthodontic Treatment Take?

Assuming you opt for clear plastic aligners, which is currently one of the most popular options, treatment is likely to take between 9 and 18 months. This can vary, however, with mild misalignments potentially being cleared up in as little as 6 months and complex cases taking up to 2 years to fully resolve. Other treatment options generally take a similar amount of time to complete.

It’s important to note that these types of orthodontic interventions are gradual processes and that results will become increasingly noticeable over time. That means that you’ll begin to see improvements and start to feel better about your smile long before treatment is over.

What Are My Treatment Options?

The exact treatment options available to you will depend on exactly what orthodontic issues you need to address, but the most common are braces and clear plastic aligners. Both of these have their own advantages and can shine in different situations.

If you’re already particularly self-conscious about your smile, you may want to opt for Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners. They are very discreet and other people are unlikely to notice, avoiding drawing any unwanted attention before they’ve had a chance to work their magic. Braces do have their place though, and can address some more complex issues, allowing even more people to move towards a lifetime of happiness and confidence.

How Do I Get Started With Treatment?

If you want to find out more about what treatment options could work for you, have any other questions, or just can’t wait to get started, the next step is simple. You need to arrange an appointment with a qualified and experienced orthodontist.

They’ll be able to examine your teeth and determine which courses of treatment are the best potential options for you. They’ll then be able to give you a full breakdown of expected treatment times, the kind of results you can expect, and everything else you need to know. After this, they’ll answer any questions you still have and work to help you decide on the right orthodontic solution to give you a smile you can be proud of.
