In the last few decades, orthodontic treatment has improved considerably. Now there are exciting ways to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile for both young and adult patients. Many orthodontic innovations have emerged, including different color braces, invisible braces, comfortable aligners and many more. It is even possible to customize the look of orthodontic work in young patients. Computer software also enables us to predict the post-treatment outcome for our patients so you will be more motivated to work towards achieving a straight smile.
But while views, attitudes, dental technologies, and tools have changed over the years, our goal remains the same – to help each of our patients achieve the smile they have always wanted.
For parents who want to get braces for their children, it may be worth while to know that majority of mothers who were surveyed in behalf of the AAO said that the orthodontic options and technologies today have made their kids’ orthodontic treatment a more positive experience.
In addition, the survey also revealed that 86% of moms think braces today are cooler than the ones that were available when they themselves were still kids. Moreover, 81% of those surveyed also reported that their kids’ experience with orthodontic treatment range from positive and very positive.
As you are probably aware, orthodontic treatment nowadays is no longer just limited to braces. There are several options available to patients. The enthusiasm about the treatments also does not stop with the treatments alone – even orthodontist offices are designed to enhance the patient’s whole experience. Patient-friendly offices have music, video games and reading materials so patients can look forward to each visit.
A full 78% of mothers who were surveyed believe that braces are among the best investments their own parents have ever made for them. Isn’t it about time that you also make that investment for your child or perhaps for yourself?
