The new year is here, and as we wave goodbye to 2017, we welcome 2018 with our own hopes, goals, and some resolutions that will make this the best year yet. Most resolutions typically fall into the category of self-improvement, whether its quitting a bad habit, picking up a good one, or trying something new Eating healthier or going to the gym are both common ones, but if you’re really looking for some improvement in your life, there’s an often overlooked path that that can make the difference between having a good year and great year. 

We’re talking about getting a healthier, straighter smile through orthodontic treatment. If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and were dissatisfied with how your smile looked, try imagining a future where you look in the same mirror and light up when you see a perfect, radiant smile shining back at you. Beyond that, there are many benefits that come with getting a new smile that are gifts that keep on giving through the rest of your life. Your local smile experts here at Tilghman Orthodontics have put together this quick guide on why you should consider a smile transformation as your New Year’s resolution for 2018. 

A Straighter Smile Is A Healthier Smile

If you have teeth that are crooked or misaligned, even the best oral hygiene of thorough brushing, flossing, and rinsing often won’t be able to get the food particles or bacteria that are trapped. That’s because crowding often creates pockets that are extremely hard to reach and clean, making you more susceptible to things like tooth decay, gum disease, infection, and even worse health problems if left untreated. 

On the other side of things, if you straighten your teeth with a treatment such as braces or Invisalign, those hard to reach areas no longer exist and it becomes much easier to keep your smile clean and healthy. If you had a click in your jaw or ever felt uncomfortable when eating or talking, those problems will now be gone as your jaw and teeth are perfectly aligned in the positions that they were always meant to be in. 

A Big Boost In Confidence For The New Year

If you’ve ever felt self-conscious of your smile, or been jealous when you saw someone who had a perfect smile, orthodontic treatment will be able to give you that perfect smile you want. Most patients who complete orthodontic treatment experience a boost in self-confidence. No longer having to worry about hiding your smile will feel like a weight lifted off of your shoulders, leaving you feeling invigorated and ready to take on any of the challenges that the new year dares to try to throw your way. You’ll take on everything with a big, bright smile.
