Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities, with a primary focus on aligning teeth and jaws to improve function, appearance, and overall oral health.
At TLC Dental, the expert dentists will carefully evaluate your dental condition to determine whether you require orthodontic treatment. Depending on the complexity of your case and the specific orthodontic needs, some procedures, like clear sequential aligners (such as Invisalign), can be performed at TLC Dental. These aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces and offer a more discreet and comfortable way to straighten teeth.
However, in certain cases where more specialized treatment is necessary, TLC Dental may refer you to a specialist orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists who have undergone additional training and specialization in orthodontics, enabling them to handle more complex cases and offer advanced treatment options.
Whether you undergo orthodontic treatment at TLC Dental or get referred to an orthodontist, the primary goal remains the same – to achieve a well-aligned bite and a beautiful smile, leading to improved oral health and overall well-being.
If you are concerned about the alignment of your teeth or any dental irregularities, it’s essential to consult with a dental professional. They can assess your situation and recommend the most appropriate treatment to address your specific needs and help you achieve a healthier, more confident smile.
