Reasons To Receive Treatment From An Orthodontist Over A Dentist
When inquiring about orthodontic care and researching to start treatment, it can get a little overwhelming. For many years, patients would visit a dentist for general dentistry needs, an oral surgeon for surgical dental needs, and an orthodontist for care in shifting and moving the teeth and jaw into proper placement. Over the years, general dentists have started increasing the variety of treatments they offer, and it can get confusing as to which dental professional to see. At The Best Braces, we encourage any patient interested in receiving orthodontic care to visit our office rather than a general dentist.
While some general dentists do take extra courses and become specialized in other areas of dentistry, orthodontists complete a minimum of two years of study specializing in this form of care and become licensed to practice orthodontics. For other aspects of your health, you trust a doctor who specializes in a form of specific care, such as a cardiologist to check your heart. You should treat your mouth with the same care and see a specialist for your specific needs.
Optimize Time and Money
An orthodontist can be more cost effective because they recommend the right treatment the first time. There is no guesswork and the need for additional treatments. When visiting our office for orthodontic treatment, we create a plan that will give the best results in the shortest time possible. There are many treatment options available and we will suggest a plan that we know will be beneficial to both the aesthetic appearance of your smile as well as your oral health.
Our office provides a number of orthodontic treatments that will fit any need, including:
- Traditional metal braces
- Ceramic braces
- Same-day clear aligners
- Orthognathic surgery
