How to Choose the Right Orthodontist

A bright, white smile is a sign of good health and wellness, but when teeth are severely misaligned, maintaining good oral hygiene is important. This becomes a challenge leading to problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and uncomfortable or painful chewing. A dentist focusing on orthodontics is the best person to see if you have crooked teeth or gaps in your smile. At New York Dental Studio in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, we offer orthodontic care options.

What Does an Orthodontist Do?

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in evaluating, preventing, and correcting malocclusions of the teeth and jaws. Dentists specializing in orthodontics use various permanent and removable dental devices, such as braces, retainers, and bands, to shift teeth into better alignment. They can correct a variety of dental irregularities, such as:

  • Distorted or crooked teeth

  • Issues with the teeth's alignment, such as an overbite or an underbite

  • Excessively spaced or crowded teeth

  • Problems with jaw alignment

When your bite is corrected, you'll be better able to eat, chew, and talk clearly.

Factors To Consider When Looking For the Right Orthodontist

The health sector has been oversaturated with professionals, including orthodontists. You should be very vigilant when choosing the right orthodontist. Suggestions from colleagues and coworkers may be insufficient to help choose an orthodontist. Here is what you should consider when looking for the ideal orthodontist:

  • Good Reviews: It is natural for a competent orthodontist to have good reviews. Both good and bad reviews are important to determine the authenticity of a service provider. Analyze all the reviews before deciding on the right person.

  • Answers Questions: During a consultation, your orthodontist should be able to answer all your questions clearly and in detail.

  • Professionalism: A competent orthodontist will adhere to the highest standards of professional dentistry during your appointment. As fully trained, qualified, and licensed orthodontists, they should have direct experience treating patients with the same or comparable conditions. They should also not make you feel uneasy, violate your boundaries, or discourage you in your recovery journey.

  • Education and Experience: Competence in service provision indicates a respectable orthodontic practitioner. Whether installing metal braces, Invisalign, or correcting malocclusions, experienced orthodontists are better placed to handle your case.

Orthodontic Services are Offered at New York Dental Studio

There are numerous orthodontic treatment options available at New York dental Studio, such as traditional metal braces, transparent braces, and Invisalign. The appropriate treatment for you will depend on your specific needs and preferences.

  • Traditional Braces: Traditional braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses metal brackets, wires, and bands to move teeth into proper alignment gradually. This time-tested technique can effectively correct many dental issues, such as crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites.

  • Invisalign: Consists of clear, plastic trays worn over the teeth. They can address spaces, crowding, misalignment, and overbites. Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic solution for people seeking to enhance their smile.
