October is National Orthodontic Health Month, and for the entire team here at Myers Orthodontics, this is always a special occasion! As a leading orthodontic practice serving the Knoxville, TN area, we've seen firsthand the serious, long-term changes that orthodontic treatment can create in a person's life, and it goes so far beyond just the appearance of a smile. Orthodontics can revitalize someone's life – and National Orthodontic Health Month helps us celebrate that fact.

The Magic of a Beautiful Smile

Beyond just improving physical appearance, achieve a new smile through orthodontic treatment can fundamentally change someone's self-image. So many of our patients – especially adult orthodontic patients – report that getting a new smile imparts a boost of confidence, self-esteem, and happiness that radiates through every area of their personal and professional lives. Suddenly, things that seemed difficult before – be they major professional presentations, first dates, or big social events – just get easier when you aren't afraid to show off your smile.

In addition to confidence, orthodontic treatment can help alleviate serious, debilitating problems. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ/TMD) can be debilitatingly painful, and orthodontic treatment can provide an avenue of relief. Furthermore, straightening the teeth with orthodontics helps to keep them clean, protecting the health of your smile for a lifetime.
