October is National Orthodontic Health Month

October is National Orthodontic Health Month, which means that it’s time to celebrate how braces have corrected the teeth and bites of millions around the world!

Aligning teeth has also improved the self-esteem of countless individuals who dreamed of having beautiful teeth. Because of braces, more people than ever are smiling confidently.

According to Colgate.com, the goal of orthodontic treatment is to “create a healthy bite” which enables the patient to speak and chew better. Not only do patients benefit from more functional teeth, orthodontics can also improve one’s overall health. Braces can relieve headaches, jaw discomfort, improve speech, and even one’s mental health. Individuals can gain more self-esteem by correcting aesthetic issues like a deep bite and severe underbite, reducing their social anxiety and symptoms of depression. These benefits are definitely worth celebrating!
