Why an Orthodontist is the Best Choice for Orthodontic Treatment

April 7th, 2022

Orthodontists are specialized in properly aligning teeth and jaws and possess the dental training to give you your best smile, making them the right person for orthodontic treatment. To put it simply, it’s best to see an orthodontist for orthodontics 

Orthodontists are Specialists

Orthodontists are specialists who focus on your bite and alignment of your teeth. Their job is to not only make sure that your smile looks great, but your bite feels good and functions properly, too.

Orthodontists have 3,700 hours of Orthodontic Training

In addition to dental school, orthodontists are the only dental specialists who have additional education and training focused exclusively on the movement of teeth, jawbones, facial bones, and soft tissue–3,700 hours of specialized training to be exact. They understand growth and development and are also called dentofacial orthopedists.

They Provide You with a Truly Customized Treatment Plan

Straightening teeth and aligning the bite are both complex biological processes, not quick fixes. With expertise in those complexities (like changes in jaw bones, facial bone and soft tissue as teeth are moved), your orthodontist is equipped to provide a truly custom treatment plan that is best for you. When it comes to your health you don’t want to miss any critical factors.

Use HSA/FSA Funds Now to Save All Year on Orthodontics

March 7th, 2022

Start Early in the Year to Save Money

HSAs, Health Savings Accounts, and FSAs, Flexible Spending Accounts, are savings accounts that let you set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for qualified medical expenses, including orthodontic treatment. Money set aside throughout the year is a salary you do not have to pay taxes on. By using untaxed dollars in an HSA or FSA to help pay for your orthodontic treatment, you save money!

Watch & learn more...

Most financial institutions agree that the flexibility of these types of accounts can work great if you have predictable medical expenses each year.  Plan participants should contact your HSA or FSA provider for specific details on their HAS/FSA plan.

The team at Martin Family Orthodontcs can help you use your HSA or FSA to pay for your orthodontic care.  AAO Orthodontists have an additional 2-3 years of training specifically in moving teeth and providing a beautiful and healthy smile for their patients.

Health Benefits of Orthodontics

The primary purpose of orthodontic treatment is to create a healthy bite—straight teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.

If your teeth are crowded, protrusive, spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, correction may be recommended. Braces and aligners are the “appliances” orthodontists most commonly use to guide your teeth into their proper positions. Retainers preserve and stabilize the results of your orthodontic treatment.
From reducing your risk of gum disease to improving bite functions and overall dental health, there are many clear benefits when you receive orthodontic care.
