Most children will need to have orthodontic treatment after their adult teeth come in due to jaw misalignment, crookedness, crowding, or gapping and many adults also seek orthodontic care to fix these same issues. Yet, finding the right orthodontist for you and your child can be overwhelming. Most dentist will need to refer you to an outside orthodontist, but at Dentistry by Dr. Kaplansky, PLLC, we offer not only general dentistry services, but orthodontic treatments as well.
Benefits of Your Dentist Being Your Orthodontist
Visits are convenient – Having to look through referrals to find an orthodontist that fits your needs can be difficult, which is why Dr. Igor Kaplansky received extra training in orthodontics. We can treat you for almost all of your dental and orthodontic needs under one roof.
We know you – When you have already been seeing a dentist for dental care, adding orthodontic care is easy. Our staff will already know your dental history and can provide you better care than going to a third party that will need to take the time to get to know you and your needs all over again. We will also be able to address your questions and concerns more efficiently.
Less expensive – When you receive a referral from your dentist, it often means that you are going to have to see a specialist that charges more money. Having your dentist also be your orthodontist can save the money you would spend on seeing a specialist. It can also help save money on paying for multiple visits at several different offices.
Less time – One of the main advantages of having your dentist and orthodontist be the same person is that you can schedule appointments back to back so you won’t have to take extra time off from work. Especially since orthodontic treatments often require more check-up appointments than general dentistry.
