Trust Your Smile to Our Orthodontists

November 1, 2018

If you or someone in your family has a crooked smile, you may be wondering if you should visit an orthodontist.

Many general dentists do promote orthodontic care, but few can match the expertise and experience of our team at Orthodontic Affiliates. We have decades of service to patients throughout Indiana.

Odds are, no matter what problem you have, no matter how bad you think your problems may be, we have the knowledge, training, and services to give you the smile you want to see.

Call 888-722-5033 now to schedule an appointment at any of our seven Indiana locations.

Orthodontists are Specialists

Orthodontics is one of nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. To be more technical, the specialty is orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

As orthodontists, we have completed dental school like any dentist. However, we also completed years of additional training to learn as much as we could about treated alignment problems and bite issues. This includes diagnosing structural issues (such as the shape of the jaw or mouth), that may contribute to “crooked” smiles.

As specialists, this also is what we do every day that we work. As a result, we have seen a wide range of problems and we have multiple services to treat them. Our formal training and years of experience mean that we have helped thousands of people create better, straighter smiles.

General dentists are amazing at what they do. We work closely with many general dentists, after all. And they would likely agree with us that you would have a hard time finding a general dentist who can match our understanding of tooth movement.

We Offer More Possible Solutions

Believe it or not, it’s possible for a dentist to attend a weekend seminar and start offering “orthodontic” treatments the following Monday.

Now, the services themselves can be useful if you visit a dentist who understands both how to move teeth and what can happen after the treatment is complete. You don’t just want straight teeth for a short time. You want to keep your new and improved smile for as long as you can.

At our offices, you will find a number of services, so you can get the one that perfectly fits your needs. This includes:

When you visit us for a consultation for yourself, your daughter, or your son, we’ll consider every relevant factor when deciding which treatment is right for your situation.

Straightening teeth is about more than just giving you a nice smile. Straight teeth that stay straight are good for your oral health as well. They make it easier to clean your teeth and keep them free from decay.

Get the Smile You Want Today & Tomorrow

We understand that orthodontic care is an investment. That’s also why we want every patient at Orthodontic Affiliates to get the best possible care. You can create your perfect smile, and our experts can help.
