New year, new smile! Top 5 reasons to get braces or Invisalign for the new year

As we welcome a new year, you may start thinking about the goals you want to accomplish this year or setting some New Year’s Resolutions. If you’ve been considering straightening your teeth, 2024 could be the year you finally say “yes” to orthodontic treatment! Why? Because advancements in orthodontics happen all the time (especially in recent years). But what does this mean for you and your smile in the new year?

Let’s find out! Here’s the top 5 reasons to get braces or Invisalign.

1. Quick aesthetic transformation

At Fishbein Orthodontics, we have held the title of the “Best Orthodontist” from local news outlets since 2014. With decades of experience and thousands of Emerald Coast smiles transformed, Fish Ortho is proud to give you the personalized orthodontic treatment you deserve…with braces or Invisalign® clear aligners. Because of our commitment to continued education, the use of modern technology, and our advanced treatment options, your smile transformation doesn’t have to be a long one! In fact, our average patient takes only 12 to 18 months to complete their Invisalign treatment with us. Some patients even start seeing amazing results within the first 6 months!

2. Will help improve your health

The benefits of orthodontics go beyond just a beautiful smile too! Common orthodontic conditions like crooked teeth and overbite can spell disaster for the health and integrity of your teeth and gums, causing improper wear and tear on your enamel and hard to clean areas. Orthodontic treatment will gently move your teeth into healthy alignment. This helps make your oral hygiene routine a breeze and helps improve your oral health (and your overall health too!) While your body can have a fantastic immune system, it also counts on proper oral hygiene to help keep the bacteria in your body under control. So by undergoing orthodontic treatment and sticking to a strong oral hygiene, you can make caring for your smile and your body that much simpler!

3. Gives you long-term savings

A new year can mean a new budget and you’re not sure if you can fit orthodontic treatment into your budget this year. The good news is that your treatment cost will always be upfront with us! Our Fish Ortho Team will go over your personalized treatment cost, maximize your insurance benefits for you, and map out the financial options available to you at your first visit.

But one of the best reasons to get orthodontic treatment in the new year isn’t just the affordable care and payment plans available for you, it’s also the long-term savings you’ll experience! By starting orthodontic treatment now, you can save money in the long-run from the effects these conditions can have, such as dentofacial trauma or even periodontal disease in severe cases. While only 10% of people need medically-necessary orthodontic treatment, the ADA estimates about 50% of people have misalignments that require orthodontic care. So if you have crowded teeth or underbite or any of these signs you need braces now, orthodontic treatment can be a wise investment in your smile and for your wallet.

4. You have more options than ever before

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just braces anymore and braces aren’t the same as they used to be too! Thanks to orthodontic advancements, standard braces are smaller and gentler on sensitive mouths. At Fishbein Orthodontics, we offer only modern and comfortable orthodontic treatment options to get you to your dream smile, like:

5. A new year means new technology

While the combined expertise of our team of Board-Certified Orthodontists plays a huge part in creating and implementing your orthodontic treatment, the technology we use helps us to make an accurate and precise diagnosis and enhance your orthodontic experience. Using digital x-rays and the intraoral scanner, iTero, our team can map out a comprehensive digital file of your orthodontic and dentofacial health. Our iTero element also gives you a chance to spy a 3D image of your smile and give you a sneak peek at your future smile! The Fish Ortho Team also uses more subtle technology to give you a seamless experience, from our digital patient forms to the ability to text or call us with questions, you can sail smoothly throughout your smile journey.
