Lasting ortho benefits


We all know that Orthodontics / Braces make teeth straight.


People often ask us "Do I need braces?" or 

"What are the lasting benefits that make the cost and time worthwhile?"


 At Weisner Orthodontics, Dr. Stephen Weisner, Dr. Adrienne Weisner and our staff have found that while the main benefit of braces is straighter teeth, orthodontic treatment with traditional braces or invisalign can assist with improving the look of your smile & so much more. 

A great smile always gives a great first impression!

Our smiles are a big part of our identity and how we are perceived by our peers. Improving your smile is one of the most valuable investments you can make to improve your overall appearance and self image.

Patients who like their smiles have better self-esteem.  

*When you feel proud of those pearly whites, you feel better about your smile, and that contributes to a better self-image and improved self-esteem. Ultimately, that can lead to greater career success and a more fulfilling social life.

Physiological Benefits – A healthy mouth for life

Orthodontically corrected teeth are less prone to chipping and wear

Well aligned teeth are easier to clean, and less likely to decay

Ideally positioned teeth lessen the chance of gingivitis, recession, and gum disease

A good bite results in less strain on jaw muscles/joints

Better chewing and food digestion

Ability to close spaces and avoid the need for bridges or implants

A healthy mouth is also linked to a healthy body.

Psychological Benefits

Increased confidence

Improved self-acceptance and well being

Enhanced attractiveness

Cost Benefits

Improvements in overall dental health (teeth and gums), frequently result in lower dental care costs, in total, over a lifetime.


The American Association of Orthodontics estimates that 4.5 million Americans wear braces or other orthodontic equipment to straighten their teeth and to get a healthier mouth.


In summary, few things can be purchased that can give such long-term benefits. We realize that orthodontic treatment is discretionary, and as such competes with vacations, a new car, clothes, and many other things. We feel the benefits received both short-term and into the future, make orthodontics one of the best bargains your money can buy.


"We live in a very image conscious society and impressions are made within seconds. Straightening teeth makes a difference and can ultimately make or break your chances of getting certain opportunities." –Mark Montano host of TLC's show, 10 years younger.
