“My only regret is that I did not do this sooner.” We hear this statement often. Perhaps you are interested in transforming your smile to build self-confidence and/or prevent dental issues in the future.
Improve self-confidence…Whether at home, work or in social settings, your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. You notice your smile as well. When you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your teeth, it shows in your smile and how you interact with others.
The transformation of a smile is often a life-changing experience…We have the privilege of watching the smiles of our adult Patients transform during the course of their treatment. At the time of the initial consult, some are even hesitant to smile for clinical photos. These are the very same Patients who share wonderful gains in self-confidence and satisfaction in their personal and professional lives. At the end of the transformation, the constant, underlying concern about their smile is gone and replaced by a beautiful smile that reflects their beauty and confidence.
Preventing costly future dental problems…Besides great smile improvement, orthodontics can slow or stop excessive wear of the teeth by correcting improper alignment and bite problems. Malocclusions and “deep bites” can cause significant wear of the teeth, and other than aesthetic changes is the number one reason for middle-aged men and women to seek orthodontic care. Braces are also used in combination with a dental restorative treatment plan to enhance the result and achieve corrections restorative treatment alone isn’t capable of.
We believe orthodontics is an investment in the future. Not only will orthodontics potentially decrease the need for other types of dentistry in the future, there are priceless benefits as well: many orthodontic patients report their new smile brings them increased confidence and raises their self-esteem.
Why an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is limited to practicing orthodontics only. Although orthodontists are licensed dentists, the specialization to practicing only orthodontics allows us to provide the best possible treatment for our patients, and allows us to treat complicated situations much more quickly, efficiently, and to the highest possible standard.
In addition to dental school, our Doctors have spent two years of full-time, intensive study focusing on orthodontics at universities accredited by the American Dental Association. Only because of this rigorous training can they advertise as “Specialists in Orthodontics” or “Orthodontists” as required by the State Board of Dentistry. Make sure you trust your investment of time and money in doctors that specialize in the treatment you need. At Warford Orthodontics, the orthodontist is involved in every procedure, at every visit.
We emphasize the team approach: orthodontist, family dentist, other dental specialists, orthodontic staff, and patient. At Warford Orthodontics our patients are our top priority, and we love to make you smile! It is our desire that your orthodontic experience be enjoyable, patient-friendly and effective.
