When you want a straighter smile, it’s natural to want to find the best orthodontist in town. However, a more affordable solution could be available just by seeing your family dentist!
What is an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dentist who has completed two to four additional years of education specifically in the field of tooth movement and dental function. It is a highly specialized field dealing with the complex nature of human jaw relationship and function, musculature and supporting structures, and how to correct and re-align all types of malocclusion. Orthodontics deals with bone re-structuring and tooth movement by means of external forces placed on teeth via brackets, wires and other intraoral devices to achieve balanced and correct dental function.
Fortunately for you, we’re able to complete orthodontic treatments like Invisalign and braces right here in our office! No referral is necessary.
