Some people get braces as an adult, for reasons that may be their family couldn’t afford it or they had braces as a teenager and did not wear their retainer causing their teeth to become crooked again. As long as they inevitable goal is to improve your smile and dental health then you can have braces.

Orthodontists have more training than a Dentist

Although you may love your family dentist, and he or she may have told you that they can do your braces for a lot less money than an orthodontist. The reality is that the gamble isn’t worth it. Orthodontists are specially trained in the movement of teeth and jaw functions and dentists are not. An Orthodontists training begins with dental school and where they become dentists. Afterwards they attend an Orthodontic program for several more years to learn specifically about tooth movement, jaw function, and facial aesthetics. After all is said and done an Orthodontists take a special exam to become Board Certified. Before you choose an Orthodontist make sure that he or she is Board Certified to insured that they are trained.

It is important to know that you can most orthodontists do not charge for a consultation. If you do not like one orthodontist, or want to get several opinions, it’s alright to do so. There are many ways to move teeth, and different orthodontists use different approaches to get the results you want. Evaluate what the orthodontists tell you and decide what you are comfortable with and what you can afford. During a consultation, an orthodontist will get to know you and take a good look at your teeth and your mouth. The orthodontist will then be able to tell you how long your treatment will be, what types of braces you can wear, if you need extractions, and the cost of your treatment.
