When you want to buy a new car, you don’t go to a bicycle store. You check out the offerings at a car dealership. The same logic applies to which kind of dental professional to go to for braces. You go to an orthodontist, of course!
At the office of Windsor, our top priority is to provide orthodontic solutions that best suit each patient’s needs. We want to make sure that each child and adult will enjoy healthy, attractive and well-functioning teeth that will last the rest of their lives.
With all due respect to general dentists, some of them like to undertake a wide variety of services, including orthodontic treatment. But when it comes to getting your teeth straightened, don’t leave it to your general dentist, even if he (or she) offers it.
To put it plainly, it’s best to see an orthodontist for orthodontics. They’re specialists who focus on the alignment of your teeth and your bite. Their job is to not only make sure that your smile looks beautiful but that your bite feels good and functions properly.
Orthodontists (also called dentofacial orthopedists) have 3,700 hours of orthodontic training. In addition to having attended dental school, they’re the only dental specialists who have further education and training that focuses exclusively on the movement, growth and development of teeth, jawbones, facial bones and soft tissue.
Because of their extensive training, they can provide you with a truly customized treatment plan. Straightening teeth and aligning bites are complex biological processes, not quick fixes. With expertise in those complexities, your orthodontist is fully equipped to provide a treatment plan that is best for you. When it comes to your oral health, you don’t want any critical factors to be missed. By selecting an orthodontist, you’ll be seeing the right provider—not the almost right provider.
The knowledgeable and caring professionals at Windsor ensure that your oral health will have the best outcome. We will examine every aspect of the alignment of your teeth and discuss with you every treatment option. Properly aligned teeth do wonders for anyone’s smile and oral health.
