The Super Dentists Are San Diego County's #1 Orthodontic Providers.
Orthodontists Are Dentists, But Dentists Are Not Orthodontists
If you desire straight teeth and a healthy smile, you are a candidate to visit an orthodontist. Orthodontists are oral specialists in manipulating your teeth, jaw, and gums to create a healthier, better operating smile. While orthodontists have to complete dental school, they also have extensive training after dental school in the field of orthodontics. This training often lasts 2-3 years and involves a residency program with hands-on practice. Orthodontists are also engaged in continued education, as the knowledge and technology in the field is constantly changing.
When Is The Right Age For Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, Dr. Kami Hoss of The Super Dentists recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, your children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications.
While braces are often thought to be just for kids, according to the AAO, one out of five orthodontic patients are adults. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.
