Finding a good orthodontist is critical in the care of your teeth. Orthodontists are dentists who have completed additional training in orthodontics. This training program requires an extra two to three years of schooling and certification. Only those with this qualification can call themselves an orthodontist. One of the best ways to find an Invisalign specialist is to ask around. Ask your friends who their family orthodontist is. Also, ask your regular dentist who they would recommend.
Many times a dentists will have a regular referral system in their dentistry practice that directs patients who need braces to a specific, trusted orthodontist. Another way is to read reviews on the internet. Before scheduling an appointment to get braces, be sure to set up a consultation with the orthodontist to be sure that you like him or her. Personality and bed side manner are very important in putting patients at ease while getting braces.
