If you are among them, you might have thought about getting braces or clear aligners to straighten your smile. Right now is the perfect time to book your appointment! Not only can you get on the road to improved oral health, but you can also show your support for National Align Your Teeth Day. What exactly is this holiday? Continue reading this blog post to find out.

National Align Your Teeth Day: An Introduction

Since 2021, National Align Your Teeth Day has been observed each year on August 11. This relatively new holiday was the result of a group of concerned orthodontists and other dental professionals who were brainstorming ways to raise public awareness of the potential consequences of misaligned teeth.

What specific consequences did they want people to learn about? Here are some examples of what you may experience if you let orthodontic issues remain untreated:

  • You may be prone to jaw pain, headaches, difficulty chewing, and other symptoms of TMJ disorder.
  • You could feel self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth and facial profile.
  • You are at a heightened risk of oral health problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and premature wear and tear on your teeth.

What Should You Do?

Would you like to observe National Align Your Teeth Day? Here are a few steps you could consider taking:

Visit Your Dentist or Orthodontist

During your appointment, your dentist or orthodontist can evaluate the positioning of your teeth and let you know whether you need treatment. They can answer your questions and help you to have realistic expectations for the road ahead.

Explore Your Treatment Options

You might find out that you are a candidate for either traditional metal braces or clear aligners, such as Invisalign. Most patients favor the latter because clear aligners offer a discreet appearance. Plus, they are removable, so you will be able to continue enjoying all of your favorite foods.

Care for Your Teeth and Orthodontic Appliances

Orthodontic treatment may take up to a few years to complete. During the time that you are using braces or clear aligners, you will need to adjust some of your habits. For example, you should stick to an excellent oral hygiene routine and be diligent about attending all recommended appointments with your dental team.

National Align Your Teeth Day could mark the beginning of your path to a healthier, straighter smile! It is the perfect time to talk to your dentist about your orthodontic treatment options.
