Orthodontic treatment can do many things for your smile and oral health. This is why Dr. Joseph P. Goodson and our orthodontic team strongly encourage you to align your smile if you suffer crooked and misaligned teeth. To help you know more about why we encourage such things, we would like to tell you all the benefits associated with orthodontic treatment in Austin, Texas.

First, orthodontic treatment, whether it’s braces or clear aligners, can straighten your chompers as well as adjust the alignment of your jaw. These adjustments can help you have a better and more effective bite, making chewing and talking much easier.

Second, orthodontics can boost your oral health. If you have misaligned teeth, there are nooks and crannies in your smile that can trap plaque and bacteria. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to frequently clean these areas, which presents a problem because if they are not cleaned from your teeth, you can suffer from tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Third, having an aligned smile can finally boost your self-esteem. When you’ve achieved your perfect smile, you will no longer feel embarrassed about your appearance when taking a picture or talking to your friends and family members. Once your treatment is finished, you will have the sensational smile you have always dreamed of.

As you can see, orthodontic treatment can be extremely beneficial for you, your smile, and your oral health. So, if you’re interested in aligning your teeth, please don’t hesitate to give Joseph P. Goodson DMD, MS a call at 512-258-6683. The sooner you call our clinic and schedule an appointment, the sooner we’ll be able to see if orthodontic treatment is the right step for you. We look forward to helping you!
