Why Is Orthodontics Important?

Commitment To The Craft

What Is A Board-Certified Orthodontist?

By choosing a board-certified orthodontist, like Dr. Maddy Goodman, you’re choosing a doctor who has proven her lifelong commitment to learning and excellence in patient care through hundreds of additional hours of education and preparation. Less than 30% of orthodontists have this voluntary credential from the American Board of Orthodontics. A board-certification is a symbol of an orthodontist’s dedication to their craft, and ensures that your whole family is receiving the best possible care.

More Than Braces

What Do Orthodontists Do?

Orthodontists work to ensure the proper function of their patients’ teeth and jaws while creating healthy, beautiful smiles. Misaligned teeth or jaw bones can make it difficult to bite, chew, and speak. An improperly aligned smile can also make teeth harder to clean and cause abnormal wearing of enamel, resulting in expensive, extensive dental treatment down the road.

Early Interceptive Treatment

Orthodontics For Children

Early interceptive orthodontics aim to “intercept” possible problems with the growth of a child’s jaw and mouth. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends having your little one’s first visit with an orthodontist at the first sign of a problem, but no later than the age of 7. By this time, your child's mouth will have reached a stage in development at which the doctor will be able to recognize current and future orthodontic concerns and recommend treatment if necessary. Starting treatment early allows us to take advantage of your child's growth potential and malleability and can greatly simplify later treatment. It can also save your child from the mental and physical repercussions of having misaligned teeth or jaws.

It’s Never Too Late

Orthodontics For Adults

You’re never too old to smile, so why not put your best tooth forward? Orthodontics doesn't just result in a beautifully straight smile. Braces and other forms of alignment therapy can also relieve many dental issues, making it easier to take care of your teeth, and reducing the risks of gum disease and tooth decay. Advancements in orthodontics and aligner technology have resulted in treatments that are more comfortable and more visually subtle than ever before. If you’re unhappy with your smile, or uncomfortable with your bite, don’t put it off any longer. Get in touch with us today at (301) 664-4220 to see how we can give you the grin you deserve!
