Looking for great orthodontics options in Seattle? We have some of the best orthodontic options in Seattle and Tacoma, WA.
Your teeth aren’t stalactites or stalagmites. They aren’t “spare bones” that stick out of your gums like calcium deposits in a cave. You don’t have to rely on luck to have them line up.
Your teeth are the perfect example of form and function. They are a performance machine, not window dressing for the showroom.
Your mouth is a complex mechanism of precise engineering. Finely-tuned and highly-evolved, it’s like a well-designed car, with elegant lines and power.
Sure, you can restore an old car, but it’s never the same as the one that’s fresh from the factory. Adding new bells and whistles won’t make up for poor maintenance.
If you buy a new car, you wouldn’t bang it around and bounce it off of curbs and walls. You would change the oil and take care of it! Maintenance is always more comfortable and better than trying to fix the damage.
That’s why Orthodontics is where all excellent dentistry starts. Orthodontics is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth (especially of alignment and occlusion) and jaws, including the use of braces or Invisalign.
It means you can finally stop biting your cheeks. You can improve the pronunciation of words, have better chewing, make better sounds when speaking (or even singing). You get improved feedback from hot, cold, and pressure. In some cases, you can taste better and also have a better facial appearance.
It means being highly efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and performance-based.
A perfect smile doesn’t just look good; it means things work in precision order every time.
Now get Invisalign for over 50% off and start down the path to your perfect smile.
More information about orthodontics
Orthodontics corrects the alignment of teeth and the jawline from teeth that have grown in several directions, crossed ways or have led to an unhealthy pulling on the jaw which also creates an improper bite.
Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the process used by highly skilled and professionally trained dentists to treat, diagnose your oral and dental health.
What are the differences between an orthodontist and a dentist?
A dentist is a general medical practitioner that helps improves the care of your mouth. They focus on teeth, gums, jaw, and the regular care of your oral hygiene.
An orthodontist is also a dentist and can practice anything a dentist does. A general dentist, however, does not share the qualifications as an orthodontist and does not have the advanced education that allows the orthodontist to administer specialized care.
Orthodontists specialize in correcting the maladies of dental and oral health by repairing the precise alignment of teeth, occlusion, and specific oral needs of the patient. 34 percent of dentists now pursue becoming full-fledged orthodontists.
With two offices in Tacoma and Seattle, it is easier than ever to get the necessary repairs your mouth needs to keep you healthy. Be sure to call now for Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dental Practice.
Why get orthodontic treatment?
Several problems cause people to get orthodontic work. Patients go for braces or Invisalign to straighten their teeth, but they also go for more in-depth care of their entire mouth. Regular oral care has a direct effect on the digestive system and provides other physical benefits.
Going to the dentist is right for everybody at any age. If you go to the doctor for your physical body health, you also have to go to the dentist for your oral health. If your mouth doesn’t feel good, it can cause your whole body not to feel good.
