MIAMI, FLORIDA-It is not uncommon these days for general dentists to promote orthodontic treatment options like Invisalign that they offer at their practice, but potential patients should stop and consider the benefits that a specialist offers before making their decision.
“The best choice for orthodontic procedures is an orthodontist,” says Dr. Pedro Alquizar, a Pinecrest braces provider.
An orthodontist’s expertise is in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities, whereas general dentists are experts in the diagnosis of dental decay, preventive dentistry and restoring, replacing and repairing teeth.
“Our job as orthodontists is to help your teeth and jaws work in perfect unison so that you can speak, bite and chew comfortably and effectively,” says Dr. Phillip Kaner, an orthodontist in South Miami who has been in practice for more than 40 years.
Orthodontists studied the fundamentals of dentistry alongside their general dentistry peers then went on to complete an additional two to three years learning the basics and intricacies of orthodontics.
“Training and experience are crucial when it comes to orthodontics because even cases that may look easy are sometimes quite complex,” says Dr. Alquizar, a Miami FL Invisalign provider. “Only an orthodontist has the specialized knowledge to identify and plan for all the variables in your mouth.”
Braces are not one size fits all. Each case requires a tailored treatment plan and expert supervision for optimal results. Whether the best treatment option is clear aligners or traditional style braces, orthodontists are trained to take your unique needs and wishes into consideration when recommending the best treatment option.
“As orthodontists, we spend all our time focused on learning and using the latest in orthodontic tools, techniques and technology to provide our patients with the best possible results,” he says as a Kendall orthodontics professional.
Being able to give our patients the best dental care requires a team approach, and we consider general dentists invaluable for achieving great results. We communicate with them to get the right restorations, dental cleanings and maintain overall oral health while in braces and beyond.
“Schedule a complimentary appointment and consultation to find out how we can help you get the smile you have always wanted,” says Dr. Kaner, who is one of the Miami orthodontists.
