Why should I see an orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a specialist who has continued extensive training after four years of dental school. An orthodontist is the dental professional who is responsible for diagnosis, prevention, interception and correction of malocclusion (misalignment), as well as any neuromuscular or skeletal abnormalities of facial features including the head and mouth.

Typically, your primary dental professional will refer you to an orthodontist and visiting with one can be so beneficial! The knowledge of an orthodontist can help to ensure that appropriate development of the facial features is taking place and can help to correct any issues that may be of concern so that larger dental problems are avoided for later. No matter why you’re visiting with an orthodontist, the number one goal is to promote a healthy and beautiful smile.

Cracking the Myths on Orthodontic Treatment:  

1.     Orthodontists are expensive

False! Not all orthodontists are expensive. In fact, many orthodontists’ like our practice are more than willing to work with you to find a treatment plan that suits your budget and financial resources. We value your smile and want to be able to give you the smile of your dreams.

2.     Orthodontic treatment takes several years

Not always true! Every patient and every case is different, so there is no telling how long treatment could take, but your skilled orthodontist has the knowledge and skill set to be able to provide you with how long your treatment would be. Generally, more minor cases could only take a few months to treat and more complex cases may take a bit longer. Regardless, once your treatment is over we can guarantee you’ll fall in love with the results!

3.     Orthodontic treatment is only for kids

False! There is not a set age limit on who can receive and benefit from orthodontic treatment. This means whether you’re a 12 year old or a 45 year old, you are capable of getting orthodontic treatment if you choose to. In fact, in 2014, nearly 1.5 million adults were treated by an American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) orthodontist, which is amazing, so don’t let age be a factor on why you would choose to not receive orthodontic treatment.

4.     Orthodontists only offer metal braces

False! Orthodontists offer more than just metal braces in today’s world. There are other treatment options out there like tooth-colored braces, Invisalign (clear aligners), retainers, etc. At our office, we simply offer top-notch services to our patients because their smiles and oral health are important to us.
