Why A Orthodontist in Douglaston, NY?
Choosing an Orthodontist Vs. a Dentist
Not all dentists are orthodontists, even though every orthodontist is a dentist. Our doctor continued their formal education for two or three additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As orthodontists, our doctor spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan.
Why does it matter if you see your Douglaston orthodontist?
Specialists like our doctor received additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
Seeing a specialist like your orthodontist Douglaston may change your experience in braces by:
- Providing additional treatment options.
- Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.
- Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns.
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
You may think it's easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a reason to choose a dentist over an orthodontic specialist, because you will only be stopping by your Douglaston orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.
And don't let price be a problem either! Stacy Wolf Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Marysville area.
