How Orthodontic Treatment Can Improve Your Life


At the orthodontic office of Dr. Maryam Mojdehi-Barnes, we’ve worked with the families of Allen, TX and surrounding communities to achieve ideal smiles for nearly 20 years. Not only do we have a team of talented orthodontic experts led by our very own Dr. Mojdehi-Barnes, but we also have the most advanced orthodontic technology available to help us achieve the best smile every time.

Today, orthodontic treatment is simple, convenient and affordable for patients of all ages. And there are three main reasons why people seek orthodontic treatment:

  1. A Beautiful Smile and Improved Self-Confidence
  2. Better Oral Health
  3. Proper Oral Function
  4. Improved Overall Health & Happiness

A Beautiful Smile and Improved Self-Confidence

 The most visible benefit of undergoing orthodontic treatment is the improved appearance and self-esteem that comes from a beautiful new smile. It has been shown that a better appearance can help a person’s academic, professional and personal success, and that one of the most significant factors of appearance is a wide, bright smile. Having a beautiful smile can help patients look and feel better about themselves, which can have a significant impact on every aspect of their lives. Certain appliances, used in conjunction with braces, can modify the facial bone structure of a growing patient and improve the growth pattern of the jaws. This is why orthodontic treatment has gained such popularity over the last few decades among children and adults alike.

Better Oral Health

Orthodontics improves oral health in many ways. Straight teeth are healthier and easier to brush and floss, which helps reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease (gum disease). Teeth in proper alignment have less plaque build-up, leading to healthier gums and fewer cavities. Also, certain bite issues can lead to damage to the teeth (fracture or abnormal wear of the enamel) and/or gums. Improper tooth alignment may cause gum recession, contributing to periodontal disease.

Proper Oral Function

Some bite issues make it hard to chew, bite, enunciate certain sounds, or just find a comfortable place for the jaws to rest in. These functional problems can lead to clenching, grinding, muscle fatigue and spasm, which have been linked to jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction, headaches, and neck pain. By creating a healthier bite through orthodontic treatment, these problems may be prevented or alleviated.
