THE CONNECTION BETWEEN A BEAUTIFUL SMILE AND TWEEN SELF ESTEEM

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN A BEAUTIFUL SMILE AND TWEEN SELF ESTEEM

By Dr. Sahira Kortam

Does your tween avoid smiling because they don’t like their teeth? A child’s smile can actually have a profound effect on their self esteem and even impact their social skills. Further, according to a research study out of Webster University, a confident smile can be even more attractive than traditional good looks.

  Through orthodontic treatment (either with traditional braces or Invisalign) I can correct genetic issues from crowding and spaced teeth to protruding upper teeth. Or, I can address improper bites due to thumb-sucking as a child, periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, early or late loss of primary teeth, or trauma to the teeth from a sporting injury, for example. 

  At Ashburn Orthodontics we offer comprehensive orthodontics for tweens to help them have a healthy, attractive, confident smile! We strive to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment while also ensuring incredible customer service.
