From the September 2023 issue of Around Alhambra:
Retirement is an exciting event that marks the beginning of a new life chapter. Without work obligations, retirees can focus on what matters most: family, friends, hobbies and personal health.
To thrive in retirement, you must prioritize your health—especially oral health. Poor oral hygiene can cause tooth loss and gum recession, weaken your jawbones, and worsen chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Regular brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings prevent these complications and boost overall health. Orthodontic treatment can be a huge help as well.
Our practice, Beverly Hills Orthodontics (BHO), is filled with retired people undergoing braces and Invisalign care. Orthodontic treatment benefits patients of all ages, including older adults and seniors. By eliminating bite issues and improving tooth alignment, patients experience:
- Improved oral hygiene
- Reduced risk of gum disease
- Stronger teeth and bones
- Enhanced chewing and digestion
- Clearer speech
If you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, age will not bar you from orthodontic care. That’s why many BHO patients see retirement as the perfect time for treatment.
Retirement empowers you to focus on what’s best for you. With less work, you can spend your days doing what you love, seeing your favorite people and prioritizing your physical/mental health.
Braces, Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments benefit more than just your teeth and gums. A perfect smile bestows confidence in social and family settings. It makes you want to laugh openly, make friends and live life to its fullest. With just a few months of orthodontic care, you can experience a lifetime of mental, physical, and oral health benefits.
If you’re ready to improve your smile, Beverly Hills Orthodontics can help. BHO has offices in four locations: Beverly Hills, Studio City, DTLA, and Alhambra. Call or text (310) 785-0770 to schedule an appointment.
