Orthodontists attend a 2-4 year Orthodontic program post dental school. Orthodontists are specialized in correcting the jaw relationship and teeth position so you can have a functional, healthy, and comfortable bite. Oh, and a beautiful smile that is worth smiling about!
Having a healthy, functional jaw relationship and bite affects one’s overall health and comfort. Someone who does not have a functional bite might suffer from chronic headaches, neck pain, or tooth pain. An Orthodontist works to position your upper and lower jaw, in conjunction with your facial muscles, to create a functional bite. This allows the ability to comfortably bite, chew, and speak. It is also added insurance for a healthy dentition.
Your dental health is an investment. Trust your smile to a specialist; an Orthodontist.
