TruSmiles Never Go Out of Style

Dr. Zach Truman knows a thing or two about what makes a great smile. Truman Orthodontics not only helps the Henderson and Las Vegas communities thrive one TruSmile at a time; we educate patients on how to care for those pearly whites for years to come. That’s because oral health can affect your physical, mental, and social well-being. Here’s why TruSmiles are one’s best accessory. 

Oral Health is Physical Health


In today’s social media driven world, there is constant pressure to be “insta-ready.” But the benefits of embarking on an orthodontic journey reach far beyond appearance. Misaligned teeth could mean tooth decay, gum disease – even digestive issues down the road. “By straightening the teeth,” states the American Association of Orthodontists, “braces make oral hygiene maintenance easier and reduce the likelihood of dental complications.” Furthermore, orthodontic treatments are supported with daily oral care. Proper brushing and flossing are vital to keeping one’s smile journey on track. 

Truman Orthodontics-Henderson provides care to about one-hundred patients a day. The TruCrew can assure that straight teeth aren’t just a personal statement – it’s a cornerstone of a healthy and happy life. 

Oral Health is Mental Health 



The connection between oral health and mental health is astonishing. “When a person has poor oral health,” says the American Psychiatric Association, “it can impact their eating, speech and self-esteem and lead to reduced social interactions, further harming mental well-being.”

In contrast, a bright and confident smile can be life changing. We’re talking about improved self confidence, personal interactions, and professional opportunities. It’s why debands, regardless of age, are such a moment. Saying so long to those braces isn’t just an image boost; it’s a testament to how an improved smile leads to self-discovery, personal freedom, and inner strength. 

Oral Health is Social Currency

As patients begin to see changes in their smile, they blossom into more socially outgoing and engaged individuals – especially among teens. That’s because along one’s journey, a straighter smile can improve speech and even sleep apnea. These two areas alone can have a profound impact on one’s relationships and career prospects. In today’s ever-changing society, the value of a great smile in both personal and professional realms remains unchanged. 

Twenty Years of TruSmiles

Smiling is a universal language – a bridge that connects the world. A smile is also among the most lasting investments in one’s overall health.


After twenty years of private orthodontic practice, it’s wonderful to see that a great smile never goes out of style.
