October is National Orthodontic Health Month, and our orthodontist at SmileAlign Orthodontics is celebrating the benefits our treatments provide: Healthy, beautiful smiles that bring years of pleasure to our patients of all ages! October is also a time when we like to point out that although orthodontics may be perceived as having cosmetic benefits, our treatment is the cornerstone of optimal oral health.
We are proud to be part of a relatively small group of specialists — only an estimated six percent of all dentists are orthodontists. Orthodontists have years of additional training beyond dental school plus a residency to obtain the expertise needed to master the art and science of moving teeth into their proper positions. When it comes to correcting a misalignment of the teeth and jaws, and creating a customized smile you’ll be proud to show off, you simply cannot find a better trained specialist.
In a continuing commitment to serve our patients, our practice offers the latest advances in orthodontics, including diagnostic and treatment options that deliver best-in-class results, often in less time than in the past. Besides traditional metal braces, we’re proud to feature ceramic braces that come in various colors, lingual braces that hide behind your teeth, and clear aligners that are virtually undetectable. These new options allow us to serve a wider range of patients, including adults who are quickly becoming the fastest growing segment of our practice.
During National Orthodontic Health Month we also join the American Association of Orthodontists in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. We are asking young people to commit to being part of the solution to eliminating bullying.
October is the perfect time to learn more about our practice at SmileAlign Orthodontics. Come in and meet our friendly orthodontist and accommodating staff and find out why we’ve become the gold standard in our field. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment!
