National Orthodontic Health Month

National Orthodontic Health Month
Posted on 10/25/2016

Do you have a favorite month? For us at Pardo Orthodontics, it's hard to pick one - but it might just be October. It's not just the pumpkins, the scary stories, and the onset of fall that make us love this month so much: October is National Orthodontic Health Month, an important occasion that champions an even more important cause. National Orthodontic Health Month is all about raising awareness of the importance of orthodontic treatment, and if you've been considering correcting your smile, there's never been a better time - especially with Halloween coming up!

The Importance of Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is critical to the health of most smiles, and it has a range of benefits that last for years. At a basic level, orthodontic treatment comes with health benefits for your teeth. Especially around Halloween, keeping teeth clean and healthy is critical to a beautiful smile - and a straight smile helps with this. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, so orthodontic treatment can help to safeguard against decay and prevent cavities.

The biggest benefits of treatment, though, are psychological: a new smile imparts a boost in self-esteem, happiness, and confidence that radiates through every area of your personal and professional life. Just about everything gets easier when you have a smile you're proud to show off!

Treatment Has Never Been Easier

Despite what you may think, getting a straighter smile is easier than ever. Gone are the days of huge, ungainly strips of metal for braces: modern braces are thin, light, comfortable, and aesthetically appealing, and new treatment alternatives like Invisalign mean almost no one has to know you're straightening your teeth. And since we can move healthy teeth at any age, it's never too late to straighten your teeth. In fact, more than a quarter of our patients are busy adults!
