The Connection Between a Beautiful Smile and Teen Self Esteem Does your teen avoid smiling because they don’t like their teeth? An adolescent’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 at Raywood Orthodontics, we can correct hereditary issues from crowding and spaced teeth to protruding upper teeth. Or, Dr. Eileen Raywood can address improper bites due to thumb-sucking as a child, crooked teeth resulting in poor dental hygiene, early or late loss of primary teeth or trauma to the teeth from a sporting injury, for example.


The good news is that adolescence is the optimal time to rectify orthodontic problems as teens haven’t yet finished growing. Early correction of orthodontic problems frequently takes less time in treatment and is less costly when compared to correction of dental problems that have been allowed to progress into adulthood.


We offer comprehensive orthodontics for teens to help them have a healthy, attractive, confident smile!
