Orthodontics may seem complicated to you but rest assured that when you are here at Jupiter Orthodontics with Dr. King, you are in the right place. It is important that you feel at ease throughout the orthodontic process. When you visit our website, you will find a plethora of information and likely many answers to your own questions. Here are just a few questions most people ask.
1. WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR MY CHILD TO BE EVALUATED?
While each individual has differing needs it is best to have a child evaluated by the age of seven or eight when misalignment or crowding becomes evident. Your dentist will likely be the first to identify the need for orthodontics and refer you to a qualified orthodontist.
Treatment which begins at the early stages of emerging issues will likely result in shorter treatment time and often be less expensive, making it a wise decision. Dr. King offers an observation program to monitor your child’s progress adding no additional expense if they are not ready to begin treatment immediately. Feel free to call Dr. King’s office and ask for more information. 561-747-5766
2. HOW DO I KNOW WHICH BRACES ARE RIGHT FOR ME OR MY CHILD?
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about it. Dr. King knows precisely what will be the best treatment for you as an adult or your child. Dr. King works with the Damon System which is state of the art. This system utilizes tie-less brackets thus reducing the amount of pressure placed on each tooth and requiring fewer adjustments.
No matter what your individual needs are Dr. King will be able to diagnose exactly what will be the best treatment for you whether it is traditional braces, ceramic braces or Invisalign.
3. IS ORTHODONTICS JUST FOR ESTHETICS?
Absolutely not. While some may have minor alignment issues and just want the smile they have always dreamed of, misalignment of teeth can also lead to more serious problems. Crowding can affect your overall oral hygiene and your health because you may not be able to brush and floss places which harbor bacteria and can cause infection.
4. CAN I HAVE MY DENTIST PLACE BRACES OR INVISALIGN?
While many dental offices may offer orthodontic treatment and it may seem convenient for you but it is not one stop shopping. A dentist may receive a few days training while an orthodontist receives two years of orthodontic training for a total of eleven years. Additionally, an orthodontist spends a lifetime of continuing education keeping abreast of current concepts and technology. After completing dental training Dr. King went on to specialize in the art of orthodontics. As you can see, this is training dentists do not have.
