Why us? Well with a combination of orthodontist and dentist in the same place it will cut down on the number of trips you need to make to different places. If you have kids today you are busy; and by coming to see us not only will you get the best possible care for you and your family, but muliple visits can be added together. We will schedule your child’s cleanings/fillings at the same time they are getting wires adjusted. This not only saves you a trip but also allows the hygieinst to do a much better job cleaning your child’s teeth. When a child in braces gets their teeth cleaned at just a dental office the wire can not be removed and thus the hygienist struggles to clean around it. Ultimately they just can not do as good of a job. When a child with braces is seen for a cleaning in our office, however, the experience is different. First the child will have the orthodontist remove the wire, then the hygienist cleans their teeth with the wire off, and lastly the orthodontist places the new wire. More efficient and better service!!
Today, orthodontic treatment is simple, convenient and affordable for patients of ALL ages. And an attractive smile is just one of the benefits. Orthodontic treatment results in correctly aligned teeth that provide ideal jaw function and a great smile! Additionally, your teeth are easier to clean and more resistant to gum disease. Perhaps most importantly, orthodontic treatment almost always provides improved self-confidence.
How Does Treatment Work:
Each patient’s orthodontic condition requires a treatment plan based on a specialized diagnosis of the case. The treatment process involves X-rays, dental impressions and photographs. Braces have one aim: to use gentle pressure to move teeth into proper alignment. Treatment time varies depending on age, patient compliance and the severity of the condition. Generally, treatment lasts for 24 months and is facilitated by ideal patient cooperation.
Treatment by an orthodontist can be less costly than the additional care required to treat dental problems arising as a result of orthodontic problems. For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you’ll feel more self-confident. Check out our before and afters!
