More than 5 million people in the United States and Canada are in the care of an orthodontist and looking forward to a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts for a lifetime. Why is orthodontics important? Orthodontics can boost a person's self-image as the teeth, jaws and lips become properly aligned. Alleviating or preventing physical health problems is also an important benefit. Without treatment, orthodontic problems may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone destruction and chewing and digestive difficulties. A "bad bite" can contribute to speech impairments, tooth loss and other dental injuries. When should my child first see an orthodontist? The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child should get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Is it ever too late for a person to get braces? No. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. In fact, orthodontists regularly treat patients in their 50s and older! What makes an orthodontist different from a dentist? Orthodontists are the dental specialists who correct dental and facial irregularities, day in and day out. An orthodontist is expert at moving teeth, helping jaws develop properly and working with the patient to help make sure the teeth stay in their new positions. The American Dental Association requires orthodontists to have at least two years of post-doctoral, advanced specialty training in orthodontics in an accredited program, after graduation from college and then dental school. Only those who have completed this rigorous training may be called orthodontists. Both Dr. Henry Nguyen and Dr. Thomas Nguyen are specialists in orthodontics and are Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics. What about costs? This will vary, of course, depending on the severity of the case and total treatment time. Many orthodontic problems require only limited treatment.
