Who is an orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a type of dentist who specializes in correcting teeth that are misaligned, overcrowded, or have other problems with their positioning. They use braces, retainers, and other devices to slowly move teeth into the correct position. This process can take several months to a few years, depending on the severity of the case.
Orthodontists can also provide guidance on how to prevent future problems with the teeth.
How can an orthodontist help?
There are several services that an orthodontist can provide you with. Below are some of them:
#1 Braces for Adults
Adults need braces for a variety of reasons. One reason is that they may have had braces as a child, but did not wear them for the recommended amount of time. As a result, their teeth have shifted out of place.
Another reason is that adults may have never had braces as a child, but their teeth are now causing them problems
Whichever the case is, an orthodontist can help.
An orthodontist can help in adult braces by providing a comprehensive evaluation to determine if braces are the best option. They will also work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals. Orthodontists are specially trained in the placement and adjustment of braces, so you can be sure you’re getting the best possible care.
#2 Braces for Children
There are many reasons why children may need braces. Some children have teeth that are crooked or crowded, which can make it difficult to keep them clean. Braces can also help with jaw problems or bite issues. Many children feel more confident after getting braces, and they are often happier with their smiles.
Orthodontists can help with children’s braces by ensuring that the braces fit well and are comfortable to wear. They can also make sure that the child’s teeth are aligned properly before putting on the braces. In addition, orthodontists can provide advice on how to care for teeth and gums while wearing braces.
#3 Damon® Braces
An orthodontist can use Damon braces to straighten teeth and improve the appearance of a person’s smile.
Damon braces are made of high-quality materials that are designed to be durable and effective. The braces are attached to the teeth with brackets and wires, and they exert gentle pressure on the teeth to gradually move them into the desired position.
Damon braces are an excellent option for people who want to achieve straighter teeth and a more attractive smile.
An orthodontist can use SureSmile® to help improve the smile of their patients. This treatment uses computer-aided technology to create a customized treatment plan for each patient. This plan is then used to create clear aligners that are worn by the patient. The aligners gradually move the teeth into the desired position.
#5 In-Ovation® L MTM
An orthodontist can use In-Ovation® L MTM to improve the alignment of a patient’s teeth. By using this system, the orthodontist can gently move the teeth into the desired position. This system is less invasive than traditional braces, and it can be more comfortable for the patient. In-Ovation® L MTM is an effective treatment for patients who want to improve their smile.
An orthodontist can use Invisalign® to straighten teeth without the need for traditional braces. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners that are worn over the teeth. As the aligners are worn, they gradually move the teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign® is a clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Because they are virtually invisible, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. In addition, Invisalign® aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They’re also more comfortable than metal braces and don’t require any metal or wires, which means fewer appointments and less time in the dentist’s chair.
#7 6-Months Smile
An orthodontist can use 6 Months Smile to correct a patient’s smile in a shorter amount of time than traditional methods. This is done by using clear braces that are less visible, and by working with the patient to create a treatment plan that meets their specific needs. 6 Months Smile is an effective way to improve a patient’s smile, and it can be used to correct a wide variety of dental problems.
