WE CREATE EXCEPTIONAL SMILES
Introduction to Orthodontics
At Theresa Shaver Orthodontics, we offer a range of services to help you achieve the perfect smile. Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your dental and emotional health. An attractive smile enhances your health and helps improve self-confidence. It also makes it easier to brush and floss your teeth, which are essential for oral health.
Worth the Investment
A straight, healthy smile improves overall dental health (teeth and gums), which usually decreases your dental care costs over your lifetime. Few investments can give you such long-term benefits.
At Theresa Shaver Orthodontics, we realize that orthodontics treatment is discretionary, and, as such, competes with many other major purchases and investments. However, the short- and long-term benefits or orthodontic treatment make it one of the best values available today – and tomorrow.
For Your Health
Straight, well-aligned teeth:
- Are less prone to chipping and wear
- Are easier to clean, and less likely to develop cavities
- Reduce the chance of gingivitis, recession, and gum disease (which can result in tooth loss)
FEEL HAPPY IN YOUR SMILE
A straight, healthy smile can:
- Increase your confidence
- Improve your self-acceptance and overall well being
- Enhance your attractiveness
- Increase your chances of personal and professional success
It is a proven fact that the results of orthodontic treatment have a positive impact on an individual’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Many research studies have shown that an attractive smile carries social benefits at all ages and levels of society, while an unattractive smile can sometimes be a social handicap.
