Pure Orthodontics Celebrates National Orthodontic Health Month
October is National Orthodontic Health month in Canada and the United States. Edmonton orthodontist Dr. Hussain and the Pure Orthodontics’ team are celebrating by promoting the many benefits of orthodontic treatment that extend past gaining a straight grin.
When contemplating orthodontics, thoughts of children stuck in clunky headgear may come to mind. However, this perception could not be further from reality. Today’s aligning methods focus on efficiency and appearance.
“This month is a great time to spotlight how orthodontic treatment affects so many aspects of life,” says Dr. Hussain. “I truly enjoy watching my patients gain so much from their new, straight smiles.”
With popular treatments like Invisalign, lingual braces and Damon System, patients can reap the benefits of orthodontics quicker than ever before. When teeth are straight, it improves more than the patient’s confidence and image. An aligned bite puts less pressure on the jaw and teeth while chewing and speaking, and a straight smile is easier to keep healthy. Here are just a few of the advantages of orthodontic treatment.
- Better dental health, since food particles are easily trapped and hidden in crooked teeth
- An aligned and comfortable bite
- Reduced chances of developing bruxism (teeth grinding) and painful TMJ disorders
- Improved facial aesthetics
- Whiter teeth, since straight teeth are easier to clean
- A lowered risk of gum disease, because gums attach straight teeth more securely
At Pure Orthodontics, we love to see our patients enjoying all the amazing benefits a straight smile can afford. In honor of National Orthodontic Health Month, we encourage you to take a step toward achieving the smile you’ve always desired through orthodontic treatment. Pure Orthodontics offers Invisalign in West Edmonton and Sherwood Park. Contact us today to learn more.
