La Grange, IL – Has your dentist recently recommended orthodontic treatment for you, and suggested your issue could be fixed right there in his or her office? While this may sound convenient, for the best orthodontics, it’s important to see a certified orthodontist.
Your dentist is well trained in many aspects of dental care, but for orthodontics in La Grange, it’s best to see an orthodontist. After dental school, an orthodontist continues on for at least two more years of education to learn all of the specifics related to the orthodontics world.
After finishing their education, orthodontists then complete an orthodontic residency program where they put their knowledge to practice. Both this additional education and a residency must be completed before being called an orthodontist.
It is during this additional training that your orthodontist learns how teeth and the jaw work together to be the most effective. Understanding the intimate relationship between the two will ensure each orthodontic patient can speak and chew properly. Your orthodontist will also learn how the teeth and jaws work in unison with your facial muscles, which is just one additional aspect to ensure a perfect smile.
Your smile is one of your most important assets, so you should only trust it to the very best. Visiting a certified orthodontist ensures you are visiting someone who is committed to upholding the highest standards of practice.
While there are many orthodontists, becoming certified is left up to the individual practitioner. Certifying organizations, such as the American Board of Orthodontists, promote the highest standards of care and are dedicated to furthering excellence in the field of orthodontics. The certification process involves a very thorough written exam that covers all areas in which an orthodontist should have knowledge. Once the exam is passed, the orthodontist can then present treated cases to be evaluated by experts during a clinical exam. Certification is awarded on a limited-time basis, ensuring that certified orthodontists must continually prove they are upholding the highest standards.
When you visit a board certified orthodontist, you know you are visiting someone who is truly committed to his field. Becoming certified isn’t easy, and it takes effort on the part of the orthodontist to maintain that certification. But, it shows that your orthodontist is committed to offer the highest level of care, and is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of the orthodontics world. You can rest easy knowing your smile is in the best hands.
And at Battistoni and Beam Orthodontics, you get the experience and knowledge of not just one, but two, certified orthodontists. Drs. Battistoni and Beam are both Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics, and they are dedicated to providing an exceptional quality of care.
When you think about it, it’s quite a simple idea, really. You visit your general physician for checkups, but if you have a heart condition, you’ll seek out additional care from a cardiologist who specializes in caring for the specific organ. Your smile should be the same.
While your dentist has great skill in maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, if you have an imperfect bite, you’ll want to see someone who specializes in correcting bites to get that perfect smile.
While your dentist may offer some orthodontic treatments, such as Invisalign, it’s important to remember that this isn’t his or her specialty and that his or her skill in perfecting smiles may be limited to minor cases.
An orthodontist has treated countless patients, with varying degrees of difficulty. He knows that treatment must be customized for each individual patient and has a wealth of knowledge to rely on when crafting individualized treatment plans.
Your orthodontist has the skill and knowledge needed to not just straighten your teeth, but to ensure that your teeth, jaws and facial muscles all work together properly, ensuring a beautiful and effective smile.
You deserve a smile that is both beautiful and able to work effectively. The only way to ensure the best treatment is to visit a certified orthodontist.
