Know When It’s Time to See an Orthodontist

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

Your teeth, jaws, and facial muscles all work together in unison to help you speak, bite, and chew effectively and comfortably. When they’re correctly aligned and work properly, they look great, too. Orthodontists are practitioners who specialize in the alignment of these components. When they graduate from dental school, orthodontists continue their specific education in orthodontic science. After a residency, orthodontists are accepted as members by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO).

If you’re not sure when to see an orthodontist, all of the following are good times to seriously consider it.

When It’s Time for Special Treatment – You trust your heart health to a qualified cardiologist, and you should trust your misaligned teeth or jaw to an orthodontist. Like specialists in any field, orthodontists have the in-depth knowledge and experience that can help you get the best possible results with affordable braces or other therapies.

When You Need to Know Your Options – Experienced orthodontists take all of a patient’s unique needs and preferences into consideration when planning treatment. With access to a full range of orthodontic appliances and techniques, orthodontists know exactly which tools to use and how well they work in different situations.

When Your Bite Just Isn’t Right –
With a correctly aligned bite, you have the ability to bite down, chew, and speak properly. A healthy bite is one of an orthodontist’s top goals for every patient. It is achieved by correcting the position of every element of your mouth, including your teeth, upper and lower jaws, and facial muscles.

When You Want to Look and Feel Great – When your teeth are misaligned, it can affect the way other parts of your mouth function. Just like a brace keeps a knee or ankle stable and promotes healing after an injury, affordable braces for kids and adults shape long-term oral health and comfort while they create beautiful smiles.

When Orthodontists Can Solve Your Problems – Orthodontists envision crooked teeth as an opportunity to correct a health problem at its root. Using their experience and expertise, they carefully formulate a solution that will meet every aesthetic and medical need. A healthy mouth improves your general health, so don’t procrastinate. If it’s time to see an orthodontist, make your appointment today.
