How Orthodontics Can Boost Your Confidence

Learn how a beautiful smile can transform your self-esteem

So many people try to hide their smiles because they’re unhappy with the way those smiles look. An unhealthy, crooked smile may not only distract from a person’s good qualities but also cause low self-esteem. Fortunately, there’s a way to get the confidence to smile proudly during all of life’s important moments: orthodontic treatment, which can give you your ideal smile.

How Orthodontics Helps with Self-Esteem

At any age, an ideal smile can be the perfect way to give yourself a boost of confidence. After all, humans are social creatures intensely attuned to body language. If you’re able to greet people with a joyful smile, they’re more likely to be warm and friendly to you in turn. This creates a positive feedback loop: you start things off right with a confident smile; the people you meet respond warmly to you; and you use those memories to build your confidence for the next time you meet someone new or attend an important event.

Orthodontics can help by giving you a smile you’ll be proud to show off, activating that positive feedback loop. Achievable in one year or less, your perfect smile can give you confidence no matter what challenges you’re facing. You won’t have to worry about what you look like when you speak or smile; all you’ll need to do is focus on enjoying the moment while putting your best foot forward.

Achieve Your Ideal Smile – And Keep It!

At Adirondack Orthodontics, we understand how important a healthy smile is to your well-being and self-esteem. We do our best to work with each patient to help them visualize their ideal smile and then create it.

The two main categories of treatment we offer – braces and Invisalign – can correct everything from an underbite to crowded, crooked teeth.

Metal or clear braces are the traditional option and involve brackets being placed on your teeth. The brackets are then connected by bands which are slowly adjusted to move the teeth into the proper positions.

Invisalign, on the other hand, uses a series of customized clear, discreet retainers to shift your teeth into place. We can help you choose a treatment that best suits your needs.

Just as importantly, we can help you keep your smile in great shape, for life! After your treatment is over, we can ensure you have access to retainers that will hold your teeth in place for years to come.
