Your smile is a direct representation of your personality—it allows you to build the confidence you need to follow your dreams and achieve your goals. I wanted to take this opportunity to relate how orthodontics has the power to truly change your life and boost your confidence.
Before getting braces myself as an adult, I suffered from poor self-confidence. I knew that I was insecure in the appearance of my smile, but I did not truly realize the toll it had taken on my poise until I started orthodontic treatment. The best part is that it did not take until my braces were removed for my confidence to build up (though that was definitely a great feeling!) Rather, seeing my teeth shift into alignment over the course of treatment gradually led me to become more confident in myself.
If you are self-conscious, find yourself covering your mouth when you speak, or shy away from smiling at your peers, friends, and family, acknowledging that a straight and healthy smile may resolve these feelings is key. Most practices offer complimentary consultations where the orthodontist will take images of the teeth, bite, and jaw and recommend treatment options tailored to your individual needs.
At Castilla Orthodontics, we will take photos and x-rays of your teeth and use these to recommend any treatment options. The treatment plan will be explained to you in an easy-to-understand manner, and we welcome any and all questions! This initial consultation will include an estimated time of treatment where we work with you to devise a payment plan that works for your lifestyle and finances. We truly believe that orthodontics can transform your life, and we want all our patients to have this opportunity!
This lack of confidence is not just applicable to adult patients. Unfortunately, school-aged children may get teased for crooked teeth or severe bite issues. Braces can bring these teeth into alignment and allow children to truly be kids and boost their confidence!
If you have low self-esteem stemming from crooked or missing teeth, or a misaligned bite, orthodontic treatment can remedy these issues. Having the confidence to smile effortlessly each and every day will not only improve your oral health but your overall health as well!
If you are ready to boost your confidence and get the smile of your life, schedule your complimentary consultation at Castilla Orthodontics today by giving us a call or sending us a text at 503-399-0721.
