When to Visit an Orthodontist?
Your primary dentist may recommend that you visit an orthodontist or you may simply desire to have straighter teeth to improve your smile which also requires a visit to the orthodontist. Signs that you may need to see an orthodontist include spaces between teeth, crowded teeth, biting the cheek frequently when chewing, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw, teeth that meet abnormally, and jaws and teeth that are out of proportion.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children receive an orthodontic screening by age 7, especially if they exhibit the following signs or habits:
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- Mouth breathing
- Difficulty in chewing or biting
- Thumb or finger sucking
- Crowding, misplaced or blocked out teeth
- Jaws that shift or make sounds
- Biting the cheek or roof of the mouth
- Teeth that meet abnormally or not all
- Jaws and teeth that are out of proportion to the rest of the face
Selecting an Orthodontist in Monroe, NY
To find a reputable orthodontist in Monroe, first seek recommendations from family and friends. Also make a list of the Orthodontist offices in your area that are potential candidates. Remember you will most-likely be visiting the office every six weeks, so try to find an office that is conveniently located either close to your home or office. Call or visit each office to assure that they are licensed in the state of New York and they board certified. Next, visit each office for a consultation. Discuss your options, the procedures that are best for you and observe the cleanliness of the office and disposition of the staff and orthodontist. Choose the one office that meets all of your needs and makes you feel the most comfortable. Avoid choosing an orthodontist that has a messy, dirty office, rude staff, lack of credentials and seems like they are in a rush to get to the next patient.
