National Orthodontic Health Month
October 1, 2016

October is here, and that means there’s plenty of reason to celebrate. The leaves are starting to show off their beautiful fall colors, pumpkin and spice are making their annual appearance as the dominant flavors, and Halloween is just around the corner. But there’s another reason to celebrate October that you might not have heard before: October is National Orthodontic Health Month! This is an important holiday that celebrates a worthy cause, and it’s why October is one of our favorite months here at Utah Orthodontic Care.

The Importance of a Straight Smile

National Orthodontic Health Month is all about spreading awareness of the benefits and importance of orthodontic treatment – a cause we strongly believe in! Orthodontic treatment straightens your teeth and improves your smile, and while the aesthetic benefits are obvious, they’re far from the only good things about orthodontic treatment. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, which means that correcting your smile helps to stave off tooth decay from cavities and bacteria.

But even more importantly, orthodontic treatment is an investment in your best asset: your smile. A new smile brings a boost of self-esteem, confidence, and happiness that radiates through every area of your professional life, making everything from big presentations at work to neighborhood block parties easier. Truly, orthodontic treatment isn’t just about protecting your health or getting a new smile: it’s about creating a new you.
