Dorothy Dix, also known as Elizabeth Meriwether Gilmer, was well known as the forerunner of earlier “Dear Abby” type columns. Her advice helped thousands of women all over the country overcome their day to day struggles. Even so, her words hold true – there is no cheaper way to improve a person’s looks than with a smile. Many a man has fallen prey to a soft, shy glance from a pretty girl.
Sadly, many girls feel ashamed to show their smiles because of crooked teeth. In today’s world, there’s no excuse for that. Orthodontic treatment is less expensive than it has ever been. More treatment options exist than there were even fifteen years ago and the procedures carry much less risk. And not only does orthodontic treatment improve quality of life, but it also improves health; crooked and misaligned teeth make it easy for bacteria to hide and grow, leading to gum disease and other problems of the mouth.
It’s a less expensive alternative to invest in orthodontic treatment at an early age than it is to correct gum and dental problems later in life. Most children’s insurance policies cover orthodontic treatment, so that’s another big help to parents. If not, payment plans can be worked out according to your budget in order to find a method that works for you. Don’t forgo treatment just because of monetary concerns.
Let your child create their own smile quotes. If you’re looking for a Green Hills orthodontist, contact Dr. Gluck today for orthodontic quotes and find how it may cost to have your child’s teeth corrected. While they may dislike visiting the dentist or orthodontist, they’ll thank you for the beautiful smile they’ll receive as a result. When a child is proud or their teeth, they don’t stop smiling.
