6 Reasons To Get Braces in 2020

Posted by Dr. Hisham Badawi | December 27 2019

The new year is right around the corner which means a fresh start for everyone, it’s the perfect time to get the smile of your dreams. Don’t put it off any longer, make this year the best one yet with the help of braces!

Your Health Is Worth The Investment


One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to get healthy, braces can help with that! Good overall health starts with your oral health.

Crooked Teeth: If you have crooked teeth, chances are you aren’t able to properly brush your teeth. This can lead to plaque and tartar build-up and result in tooth decay along with bad breath. With braces, your teeth will be aligned in the best position for your mouth making it easy to properly care for your teeth.

Bad Bite: A bad bite can cause pain and discomfort which will upset your daily routine. This can prevent you from eating and digesting food properly, it can also affect the way you speak. With orthodontic treatment, you are able to correct a bad bite which can improve your quality of life immensely. When your teeth and jaw are aligned, you have an easier time chewing and speaking clearly among many other improvements.

Tooth Decay: To many people’s surprise, tooth decay can take a toll on your entire body. In the early stages, you might find yourself avoiding certain foods as hot and cold can bother a decaying tooth, leaving your nutrition to suffer. If left untreated, it is common to experience pain which will affect your sleep and concentration. Braces can help prevent tooth decay by aligning your teeth and jaw making it easier to brush and floss properly.

You Have Options


Now more than ever, those who are seeking orthodontic treatment have options! You can obtain the smile of your dreams with the following treatments…

Metal Braces: Metal braces are the traditional way to straighten your teeth. They are durable, reliable and have been around for years! When people opt for traditional braces they have the option to change the color of the elastic which is a great way to maintain festive teeth all year long.

Invisalign: Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible and are easily removable which is what makes them so popular. With Invisalign, you are able to remove your trays when you eat which means you have no restrictions and brushing has never been easier.

Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are the best of both worlds! They are as strong and durable as traditional metal braces but they are clear like Invisalign. These braces are perfect if you are looking for a more discreet way to get a beautiful smile!

You Won’t Regret It


Chances are if you’re considering orthodontic treatment, it has been on your mind for a while. We believe it is never too late (or too early) to have a healthy smile! Investing in your health is a great feeling. Here are some ways your investment will help you, this new year.

Confidence Boost: Gone are the days of hiding your teeth, with your orthodontic treatment giving you the smile of your dreams, you will never want to stop smiling!

Improved Health: You will find peace of mind in knowing your investment is improving your health every day. With your teeth and jaw in the optimal position for your mouth, you will be able to clean, eat, speak and function in a much healthier manner.

Happier You: Waking up every day and loving your smile will ensure you’re always putting your best foot forward. No more putting off plans because you’re embarrassed by your teeth, this new year it’s time to let that perfectly healthy smile shine!

Break Bad Habits


With braces, eating well is an important part of successful treatment. Getting a healthy smile will help you break bad habits that you are encouraged to stay away from even after treatment.

Teeth Grinding: With the help of braces, your teeth and jaw will be aligned properly which will prevent teeth grinding altogether. In most cases, teeth grinding happens at night during sleep, your orthodontist will be able to provide you with a mouthguard for bed if this habit persists after treatment.

Nail Biting: Biting your nails adds unnecessary stress to your teeth and can cause them to weaken or break over time. It can also cause your wires to bend and brackets to fall off resulting in teeth to move in the wrong direction. This can cause delayed treatment time and usually require emergency visits to the orthodontist.

Poor Diet: A diet that consists of fatty foods and sugar is detrimental to the well being of your teeth and overall health. With braces, it’s important to have a well-balanced diet to keep your teeth healthy and on track to recovery.

Do It For You


When was the last time you did something big, for you? It’s easy to talk yourself out of things for yourself but for the sake of everyone around you, invest in your health.

Direct Billing: What holds most people back from treatment is money, we don’t want to see you unhappy any longer that’s why we have come up with a number of different ways braces can be affordable. We are happy to direct bill to most insurance companies to save you both time and money!

Low Monthly Payments: We want to see you smile! We will work closely with you to create a payment plan that is easy to understand and affordable so there are no surprises.

Make This Year The Best Yet


With a healthy mouth and a huge boost to your self-esteem, the new year sounds like it’s already off to a great start. How do you make it better?

Maintain Your Smile: It is important to maintain your healthy smile during and after orthodontic treatment. Paying regular visits to your orthodontist and general dentist is the best way to do so! Remember, a healthy body starts with a healthy mouth.

Don’t Miss Appointments: Everyone lives a busy life and it is understandable that things can come up which might result in you putting off an appointment, it is important not to miss too many appointments or it could have a negative effect on your treatment.

Eat Tooth Healthy Foods: During and after treatment, treat your teeth right with healthy foods. Tooth decay is the most common adolescent disease but is 100% preventable! Drink more water this new year and eat more fruits with natural sugars when a craving strikes, your teeth will thank you for it!
