Why seen an orthodontists?
Treatment by an orthodontist can be less costly than the additional care required to treat dental problems arising as a result of a malocclusion. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints. These can lead to chronic headaches and face or neck pain.
Who should see an orthodontist?
With the high-tech orthodontic treatments available today, patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic care. An orthodontic screening examination is recommended by the age of seven, but orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age.
When to see an orthodontist?
Your general dentist would normally recognize any potential problems and recommend an orthodontic evaluation; however, you do not need a referral in order to make an appointment to see Dr. Martinez. Your first visit is designed to address any questions or concerns you might have such as: the need for treatment, the best time to start, the type of treatments offered, the estimated treatment length, and the financial arrangements available.
