Missing Adult Tooth: A Job For The Ortho

ADULT TOOTH LOSS can happen for a variety of reasons, from tooth decay to an accident playing sports. Whatever the cause, it’s crucial not to simply leave that missing tooth as it is, because the gap can cause a lot of problem for the surrounding teeth and the underlying jawbone.

How Tooth Loss Affects Alignment

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. What happens to the alignment of the teeth next to a missing tooth over time? How quickly and dramatically can alignment changes happen? What will this do for someone who has had orthodontic treatment in the past?)

Your Orthodontist Can Help

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. What can your practice do about a missing tooth? Where does orthodontic treatment fit into the process of tooth replacement? How long does this treatment usually take?)

Don’t let that missing tooth get your smile down!

Why See An Orthodontist?

DO YOU REMEMBER learning in math class that “all rectangles are squares, but not all squares are rectangles”? Well the same is true of dentists and orthodontists. All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. There’s a considerable amount of extra training and education that makes an orthodontist qualified to safely and effectively adjust a patient’s dental alignment, which is why it’s so important to choose an orthodontist to straighten your smile.

Becoming An Orthodontist

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. Describe the training and education that you acquired to become an orthodontist. How was it different than dental school? What are some of the things you learned that simply aren’t covered in dental school? How long have you specialized as an orthodontist?)

Trust Your Smile To The Experts

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. What does your practice offer patients that a general dentist could not provide while getting orthodontic treatment? What are some of the differences between your facilities and a dental practice? What equipment or tools do you have that general dentists lack?)

Defeating Your Braces Anxiety


AS IMPORTANT AS IT is to have straight teeth for better oral health and a more beautiful smile, many people are nervous at the prospect of getting them straightened with orthodontic treatment because they think it will be unpleasant or that people will make fun of them. For some, braces anxiety can even be a serious phobia. We’re here today to help ease those fears.

Don’t Let Pop Culture Give You The Wrong Idea About Braces

Whenever braces appear in movies and TV, they usually involve bulky headgear, or the character wearing them is portrayed as a socially awkward outcast. These are outdated stereotypes. Modern braces are very low-profile, particularly if you use lingual (tongue-side) braces or invisible aligners. Your braces and your social life will get along great, so don’t let concern for your peers’ reactions stop you from getting the smile you deserve!

Tips For Overcoming Braces Anxiety

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. What can patients do to reduce their braces anxiety before they come to your office? Do you have examples of strategies that have worked for your other patients?)

How Our Practice Can Help

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. Does your practice have any services to help patients with anxiety, such as counseling or sedation? What else do you and your team do to help patients feel at ease? Explain a little about the different options you offer your more anxious patients. Do you have pamphlets or other materials they could access?)

Get To Know Our Team!

If you or someone you care about needs orthodontic treatment but hasn’t sought it because of braces anxiety, feel free to schedule a time to come to our practice, meet our team members, and get used to the facility. We want you to feel safe and comfortable when you’re with us, and we’ll answer any questions you may have!

We look forward to seeing you!

(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Please customize your blog post by providing your own content here. What is the iTero scanner and how is it an improvement over traditional impressions?
