Orthodontists administer treatments like braces, Invisalign, mouthguards, etc. They are specialists who make sure your teeth are straight and perfectly aligned. At True North Orthodontics in Calgary, we have noticed that some patients are not familiar with orthodontic treatment and we encourage them to ask questions! Here are some questions you should ask an orthodontist during your consultation.
- What Are My Treatment Options?
It is always a good idea to ask orthodontists about your treatment options and compare those options. For example, if you have an overbite and need to straighten your teeth, the orthodontist will recommend either Invisalign or braces. You can ask about both of these options to get a clear idea and make informed decisions.
- What Are Your Qualifications?
A registered orthodontist is a specialist and has spent more hands on time training versus a dentist. It is a good idea to inquire about their qualifications prior to receiving treatment..
- What Kind Of Follow-Up Care Do You Provide?
Most orthodontic treatments require follow-up treatments. The level of care and support provided after the primary treatment will help you decide if the orthodontist is the right choice for you.
