Orthodontic treatment that is well done is a key part of having healthy teeth and jaws. It is the best way to prevent a lot of dental problems that come with age.
But orthodontic treatment is not a commodity and buying into an apparent bargain now could see you pay later. When done poorly, orthodontics can be a waste of time and money and even make matters worse. To complicate things, it has never been easier to do poor orthodontic treatment. You don’t have to be an orthodontist, you don’t even have to be a dentist – you can just do-it-yourself.
So it becomes an issue of, “Who do you trust?”
Patient education has been the hallmark of our practice for the last 32 years. It is our belief that when our patients and families understand their problems and treatment it makes the whole orthodontic process more pleasant and predictable.
We believe honesty is important. Sometimes in more complex cases it’s not what people want to hear. But to pretend that everything is easy does a disservice to the patient and will only create bad feelings later on down the road.
We are not a hard sell, high-volume operation. We provide the right treatment at the right time because we know if you offer good orthodontic treatment it will help that person for decades to come.
So back to the question, “Who do you trust?” If your orthodontic team is open and honest and makes the effort to educate you and help you understand – we’d say that’s a great place to start.
