What is an Orthodontic Specialist?
An orthodontic specialist is a doctor who has been trained in the alignment of the teeth and jaws. Although orthodontics has often been considered to be cosmetic, there are many health issues that are related to the teeth and jaws. An orthodontic specialist, like Dr. Erika Campbell, is trained to see these issues before they become problematic. So what are the top three reasons to see an orthodontist?
1: An Orthodontist is Trained to See What We Cannot
Like fingerprints, each person has unique teeth. This means that orthodontic treatment needs to be custom for each patient and not everyone will be ready for treatment at the same time. You might notice that your child’s teeth are not straight, but you are not able to see what is going on under their gums. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, two-thirds of what happens in your mouth is below the surface. Dr. Campbell not only uses x-rays to help her see what is going on in your gums, but also her experience and training to suggest the optimal treatment for each patient.
2: Orthodontists Create Unique Treatment Plans
As we mentioned above, no two mouths are exactly the same and no two people will have the same orthodontic needs. Dr. Erika Campbell creates treatment plans that are best for each individual patient. Orthodontics is truly an art, and each patient is a different canvas. At your initial consultation, Dr. Campbell will review her treatment suggestions and options in detail with you. Her recommendations are based on what is best for each individual’s oral health.
3: Treatment You Can Trust
Dr. Campbell is a Board Certified orthodontist. This is a certification that only 1 in 3 orthodontists have, and it requires an additional 2-3 years of training and testing. Board Certification is confirmation of an orthodontist’s personal commitment to providing lifelong quality patient care. All parents want the best treatment for their children, and Dr. Campbell has proved her passion for her work!
