Cinco razones para visitar un Ortodoncista

Hoy en día existen muchas opciones de tratamiento para alinear los dientes y arreglar una sonrisa.  Tal vez se pregunte por qué es necesario que le confíe su tratamiento a un Ortodoncista Certificado.  Aquí puede encontrar las cinco razones principales por las cuales es imperativo que sea un Ortodoncista el que realice su tratamiento de Ortodoncia o el de su hijo/a.

  • Los Ortodoncistas son especialistas.

Después de completar sus estudios para convertirse en Dentistas Generales, los Ortodoncistas dedican dos a tres años adicionales para el estudio de la ortodoncia.  Practican ortodoncia únicamente, se mantienen activos tomando cursos de educación continua exclusivamente de ortodoncia, y ven un alto volumen de pacientes cada mes. Los especialistas en ortodoncia son entrenados para tener el conocimiento y la destreza necesarias para ayudar a sus pacientes a obtener la sonrisa que siempre desearon.

  • Usted sólo quiere tener tratamiento de Ortodoncia una vez en su vida. Hágalo bien.

El propósito principal de un Ortodoncista es ayudar a sus pacientes a que alcancen una sonrisa hermosa y una mordida saludable. Como especialistas en ortodoncia trabajan para colocar los dientes, las quijadas, las encías y los músculos faciales en la posición correcta para que sus pacientes puedan morder, comer y hablar correctamente. Si no se toman todos estos factores en consideración problemas como dolor de quijada, dolores de cabeza, desgaste de los dientes, pérdida prematura de dientes y problemas de encías pueden ocurrir. Muchas veces se ven pacientes que desean corregir sus mordidas luego de haber recibido tratamiento de ortodoncia en otros lugares.

  • Los Especialistas en Ortodoncia identifican la causa del problema y conocen la mejor ruta de acción para resolverlo.

Usted puede que sólo vea dientes apiñados. Un Ortodoncista utiliza su educación, conocimiento y experiencia para descubrir la causa del problema y resolverlo de manera saludable y estable, para obtener una sonrisa atractiva y duradera.

  • La Ortodoncia es mucho más que sólo dientes.

Un tratamiento de Ortodoncia puede tener un impacto significativo en su perfil, línea de sonrisa y apariencia. Un Ortodoncista está entrenado para tratar cada caso holística y comprensivamente, tomando en consideración la apariencia general del paciente.

  • Los Ortodoncistas son los especialistas que pueden identificar el tratamiento correcto para usted.

De igual manera que no hay dos personas que sean iguales, no hay dos tratamientos de ortodoncia que sean idénticos. Por esto, es extremadamente importante consultar con un Ortodoncista que tenga el conocimiento especializado para identificar y planificar como resolver cualquier posible problema y alcanzar un resultado final de excelencia. En conclusión, un Ortodoncista conoce qué usar y cuándo usarlo ya que se entrenan para ello y lo utilizan a diario.

Al Dr. Barton Soper y Dr. Veronica Toro le encanta trabajar con pacientes de todas las edades y formar relaciones mientras crea sonrisas hermosas, seguras, saludables y personalizadas. Él considera que una de sus mayores recompensas es cuando un paciente se mira al espejo y ve su nueva sonrisa luego del tratamiento.

Wondering Why Adults, Kids and Teens Should Only Get Orthodontic Treatment with an Orthodontist VS. Dentist?

There are many treatment options for straightening teeth these days and you might wonder why it’s necessary to trust your smile with an orthodontist.  Here are the five reasons why it’s imperative that an orthodontist be the one who treats you or your child:

1) Orthodontists are specialists.

After their general dental education, orthodontists devote additional years of study to the field of orthodontics after they graduate from dental school. They practice orthodontics exclusively, focus their continuing education on orthodontics and see numerous patients every month. They are uniquely trained to use their knowledge and skills to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

2) You only want to do this once. Do it right.

An orthodontist’s goal is to guide their patients on the track of achieving an attractive smile and a healthy bite. We work toward having the teeth, upper and lower jaws, gums and facial muscles all positioned so that you can bite, chew and speak well. Without taking these factors into consideration problems can emerge, including issues with the jaw joint, headaches, wearing or chipping of the teeth, premature tooth loss and gum problems. We often see patients who come in for corrective treatment after receiving orthodontics treatment elsewhere.

3) Orthodontists identify the cause of the problem, and the best course of action to solve it.

You may see crowded teeth that appear crooked. An orthodontist uses their education, experience and expertise to delve deep to discover the cause of the issue and solve it in a way that is healthy and sustainable– for an attractive smile and a lasting result.

4) Orthodontics goes beyond your teeth.

Orthodontics can have a significant impact on your facial profile, smile line and general appearance. An orthodontist is trained to take a holistic, comprehensive approach to your treatment so that your overall appearance is considered along with your smile.

5) Orthodontists are specialists who can identify the right treatment for you.

No two people are the same, and likewise, no two orthodontic treatment plans are identical. This is why it’s extremely important to consult with your orthodontist who has the specialized knowledge to identify and plan for all the possible issues and outcomes that may arise. The bottom line: orthodontists know what to use and when to use it because they are specially trained with these tools and work with them every single day.

Dr. Barton Soper and Dr. Veronica Toro truly love working with patients of all ages and building relationships while creating beautiful, confident, healthy and personalized smiles. They believe one of their greatest rewards is the first time a patient sees their smile in the mirror after treatment. Dr. Soper and Dr. Toro are constantly working to incorporated the latest trends in orthodontic care and even worked on a team that developed a new invisible retainer to hold teeth in place!

During October, orthodontic offices all over the country work together to promote their services and inform the community about the important work we do.
