5 Ways Orthodontics Improves Your Smile & Your Life

Your smile impacts everything, the way you eat, the way you speak and even your self-confidence. Personalised and expert orthodontics will help you get the smile you want and make a difference to your quality of life, in more ways than one.

1. Smiling Confidence

60% of Australians believe that a good smile gives you confidence and your teeth have a big impact on your smile and your self-esteem. When you have a straighter and whiter smile you naturally feel more confident and happier in your skin. Improved self-confidence will also make you feel more confident in your professional, personal and social life.

2. Clean & Fresh Smile for Life

Straighter teeth make it easier to clean properly, meaning fewer cavities and gum problems. Keep up great oral hygiene, including flossing and regular dental check-ups to reduce future oral health issues and help you keep your beautiful clean smile for life!

3. Long-term Oral Health

Early orthodontic treatment to correct developmental abnormalities can make a big difference to a child’s future oral health. Interceptive treatment can fix the problem before it becomes severe and requires surgical intervention during adulthood. It can also reduce the time they are in braces in the future (should their teeth need aligning later on).

4. Say Goodbye to Oral Pain

Orthodontic treatment may fix jaw alignment issues and crooked teeth which may be causing headaches and overall jaw soreness. With re-aligned teeth, you will also be able to keep them cleaner, reducing any potential pain from a build-up of plaque or cavities.

5. More to Smile About

When you feel confident and have improved self-esteem you can’t help but naturally smile. Whether it’s in everyday life, birthdays, graduations, or big life events, you’ll be smiling out loud!


Orthodontic treatment impacts your appearance as well as your life, so it is important to choose an Orthodontist that provides personalised care, going beyond the cosmetic.
