We have all seen celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Gwen Stefani wearing braces. When you see a celebrity wearing braces one would assume that it is so they will look good on the silver screen or the next cover of a magazine. While a perfectly straight smile will make you more confident and improve your appearance, there are far more important health reasons to have orthodontic treatment besides a beautiful smile. When teeth are properly aligned they are easier to keep clean and less prone to tooth decay, developing gum desease and tooth loss. In addition, proper bite alignment makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.
Orthodontic treatment can be successful on patients of any age and a healthy bite is essential to patients of all ages. One of Dr. Georgaklis’ most memorable patients who was successfully treated with braces was an 82 year old musician who is still performing today. Dr. Geogaklis is an award winning San Diego dentist, who has provided treatment to celebrities and professional athletes, as well as, local San Diego families.
