Orthodontists are dental specialists who exclusively focus on the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists receive an additional 2 to 3 years of education beyond dental school.
This video covers what happens when orthodontic problems go untreated and why good oral and orthodontic health is important to overall physical health. In addition, teeth that are not well aligned tend to wear down over time. Proper orthodontic care can make sure that your teeth look good and wear well over time. Orthodontic care today may prove to be less expensive than dental care in the future for untreated problems.
There’s no reason someone can’t have a healthy, good looking smile no matter how old they are!
