Each year, millions of people decide that they want more attractive smiles. If you too are ready to have straighter teeth, you should work with an orthodontist for your dental care. Though many dentists may offer orthodontic services, consider these reasons for going to an orthodontic professional for your braces or Invisalign treatment.
The process of identifying malocclusion issues, creating a care strategy for them, and carrying out that treatment plan requires considerable orthodontic insight and experience. To call themselves orthodontists, orthodontic experts must undergo additional academic training beyond that of dentists. Those extra years of learning about mouth structures and malocclusion causes can translate into better patient treatment. Whereas dentists must spend a substantial amount of time studying and addressing other dental issues, orthodontists can focus solely on misalignment problems and solutions.
Diverse Treatment Options
A dentist may gain specialization in a single area of orthodontics, such as Invisalign, but that one treatment option may not be the right option for each patient who requests orthodontic care. In contrast, an orthodontist becomes proficient in the application of several treatment strategies. He can offer braces for patients who could be best served with this type of care, and he can provide Invisalign for individuals who make good candidates for this alternate form of treatment. When you use an orthodontist for your orthodontic needs, you give yourself more treatment choices that suit your preferences and needs.
Improved Oral Health
Did you know that a straight smile can improve your oral health? Orthodontists are in the practice of not only enhancing the appearance of smiles, but also increasing dental wellness. They understand the causal relationship between malocclusions and dental problems, which is why they can provide the highest level of care for individuals who want beautiful and healthy teeth and gums.

Do you want straight teeth? With Invisalign treatment, you can enjoy a beautiful smile in just months.
This video demonstrates how easy it can be to receive orthodontic care with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign corrects malocclusions with transparent plastic aligners, which are virtually invisible to other people. Adults in particular can benefit from getting inconspicuous orthodontic treatment that does not interfere with their professional and social engagements. Plus, these removable aligners allow Invisalign patients to clean their teeth and maintain their normal eating habits with ease. So if you’re ready to improve the look and health of your teeth, consult your orthodontist about Invisalign care.

Are you considering orthodontic treatment? If so, you may be surprised to find that your orthodontist can often provide multiple care options that address your cosmetic preferences as they attend to your clinical concerns. Knowing about the types of braces that your orthodontist can use during treatment can help you select the one will make your treatment a pleasant experience.
Would you like to make a statement with your braces? Gold is the way to go if you want to show off your orthodontic treatment. Gold braces can remedy a wide array of misalignment problems and give you a reason to smile throughout treatment. Impressive in both appearance and results, gold braces can enhance your appearance even before you finish with your orthodontic care.
Metal braces are identical to gold braces, though the former option comes without the 24 karat plating that distinguishes the latter alternative. Like gold braces, metal braces can transform smiles compromised by malocclusion issues. Due to their durable yet malleable nature, many orthodontists recommend metal braces for both their pediatric and adult patients. Indeed, metal braces are the choice of most orthodontic patients. To enhance the patient experience, modern metal braces emphasize more compact brace brackets.
Patients who prefer more subtle orthodontic treatment might choose ceramic braces. Ceramic braces minimize the appearance of orthodontic care with ceramic rather than metal components. Adult orthodontic patients who might not be eligible candidates for Invisalign treatment may take advantage of ceramic braces instead. Orthodontists can typically provide patients of all ages with more than one type of braces, so regardless of whether you want to show off your braces or keep your treatment confidential, talking to your orthodontist about your options is the first step to getting the care you need.

Getting your braces is the first step toward enjoying a future with attractive and healthy teeth. As your orthodontist might note, though, it may take a few days or weeks to acclimate to your new hardware. The presence of your braces can cause minor irritation to nearby tissues. In the days ensuing the application of your braces, you might notice small abrasions on your inner lips or cheeks. Though they will quickly heal on their own, you can help to prevent future scratches and sores with wax. By affixing wax to your brace brackets, you can create a smooth surface against which interior mouth tissues can rub without friction. You can also swish a mild solution of salt and warm water in your mouth to speed up the healing process.
