American Association of Orthodontists (AAO): A mother in Miami is looking into getting braces for her daughter. Her daughter has just started middle school, and the mother suspects her daughter is self-conscious about her crooked front teeth. Her daughter no longer smiles with her teeth and has started to cover her mouth with her hand when she speaks or laughs. The mother knows that straight teeth can boost self-esteem and help foster a healthy self-image in adolescents, and wants her daughter to be confident in school. But no-one in their family has ever needed braces, so she’s not sure where to start when it comes to getting her daughter a straight smile.
Their family visits the dentist twice a year for cleanings, as recommended by the ADA. Since they have dental insurance, she asks the dentist if he can straighten her daughter’s teeth. He explains that while he can diagnose and treat many common dental problems, straightening teeth requires a dental specialist known as an orthodontist. An orthodontist has the additional training required to safely and effectively realign teeth — correcting crooked teeth, crowding, bite issues, and other common dental problems. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends seeing an orthodontist because only these specialized dentists have “the skills and experience to give you the best smile.”
