3 Signs That Your Orthodontist Is Right for You

September 30, 2018
Posted By: Scott J. Stephens DDS Staff

A straight smile is healthier – that’s a fact.  When teeth are properly aligned, you can clean them more effectively and avoid dental decay due to overlapping teeth. Gaps between teeth can also unevenly distribute the force caused by chewing. You might see wear and tear that impacts some teeth more than others. This can lead to short or chipped teeth.

Finding the right orthodontist in Fayetteville, AR presents a number of options. Here is how to know you made the right choice.

#1 Your Dentist or Orthodontist Gives You Options

Every patient is a unique individual, and everyone likes choices. If more than one option exists to achieve your goals for your smile, we will tell you all about it. We offer Smart Moves and Six Month Braces, but if you would be better served with traditional orthodontics, we work with specialists in the area that we trust to work well with our patients and will stay in touch throughout your treatment.

#2 Your Orthodontist Uses the Latest Technology

Technology can be frustrating, but in dentistry, it’s essential to achieving optimal outcomes. Digital x-rays and attention to detail with treatment planning will ensure that your teeth are not only beautiful, but also comfortable when you chew. After all, if you can’t eat steak, crunchy carrots, or healthy nuts, a beautiful smile is just that – all for looks.

#4 You Feel Comfortable Asking Questions

Our goal is to develop long-term relationships with our patients. Your goals and concerns are important to us, and you should always feel comfortable asking questions to your orthodontist in Fayetteville. We are here to help.
