Orthodontists are dental specialists. After receiving a degree in general dentistry, they further their education for several years to be able to specialize in the field of their choice, and usually a field of passion.
In the field of orthodontics, that means learning specifics on how to diagnose, prevent, and treat dental and facial irregularities. Only those who have completed this continuing education can call themselves and ORTHODONTIST, and only orthodontists can be a member of the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO).
A team consisting of patient, orthodontist, and general dentist is extremely important for an ideal outcome.
Orthodontic treatment is a partnership between the patient and their trusted doctor. The orthodontist can provide custom-made fixed or removable appliances according to your specific needs or preferences.
These appliances use gentle pressure to move teeth into their designated positions, creating a functional/ideal occlusion (bite), and esthetically pleasing smile. 100% patient cooperation, keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments and maintaining excellent oral hygiene are all key factors in making it possible for your orthodontist to achieve the best possible results. You will also need to see your general dentist as recommended to continue your general dental care and needs.
Your smile is your greeting to the world! It's an important part of your overall dental health, including the alignment of your teeth. Choose carefully, a fully skilled orthodontist, someone you would entrust to make the best diagnosis and decisions for moving your teeth into their most ideal position to service you for a lifetime.
You owe it to yourself to go to a SPECIALIST, because it is YOU who is special, and knowing you are in the hands of a qualified orthodontist makes all the difference in how you will look and feel when you are finished with your treatment.
