If You Think About It, The Benefits of Braces are Abundant!
At All About Braces and Colorado Orthodontics, we understand that our patients in the Aurora, Arvada, Thornton, Denver, Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, and LoDo, CO areas may have doubts about getting braces. However, we want to assure you that orthodontic treatment is a great investment that will have a positive, healthy, and lasting impact on your life. Still not sure? Our orthodontists and team have come up with seven benefits of braces and how they can benefit your life.
Reason #1: Orthodontics Can Improve Your Health!
Really, it can! Crooked and misaligned teeth are more difficult to brush and floss properly, which can result in significantly more cavities and need for dental work such as fillings and root canals. Furthermore, without proper hygiene, your teeth and gums can develop gingivitis, which can require dentures in mid-life. So, as braces will help align your teeth properly, they can help prevent tooth decay and other health problems later in life. If you consider the cost of treating multiple cavities, root canals, and other dental treatment costs, braces are worth the investment!
Also, since a better bite helps you chew your food better, braces can help you avoid a lot of tummy-aches (and this can help reduce heart disease-- but more on this in a moment)!
Reason #2: Braces Can Help You Breath Better
As children get older, the roof of the mouth can block the airway as it develops on its own, and lead to breathing problems, poor sleeping issues, and more. With the help of braces, we can reshape or help advance your mouth and jaw growth to improve your breathing ability.
Reason #3: Braces Can Increase Your Confidence and Self-Esteem
Having straight, attractive teeth allows people to feel more comfortable and confident in their smile and overall appearance. Once your braces are off, your confidence will soar, and motivate you to reach for new goals!
Reason #4: Braces Can Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
People who have braces, especially as a child or teen, experience a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that gum disease is related to heart disease, because bacteria become lodged in crooked teeth.

Reason #5: People With Straight Teeth Have A Better Chance Of Being Offered A Good Job
Think about it. If you were hiring someone and you had to choose between someone with good teeth and someone with horrible teeth, which would you choose?
TV news magazines have done stories that demonstrate how pretty, attractive people are more likely to be offered jobs than those who are not attractive. There’s no denying that having an excellent smile makes someone more appealing, which can only help in the job market.
Reason #6: Braces Can Help Your Social Life
An excellent smile is always a plus when you’re making friends and meeting first dates, so we want to make sure you look your best! Whether it’s your kid’s future, or your own, there’s no doubt that straight, beautiful teeth can contribute to a successful happy life.
Reason #7: Braces Will Leave You With a Beautiful, Glowing Smile
Braces provide people with a gorgeous smile they can be proud of. When you add it all up, braces are worth it for physical and psychological benefits.
