Many adults and teens come to my practice seeking orthodontic treatment because they’ve always wanted a straighter smile. While as a trained and specialized orthodontist it’s also my responsibility to correct their bite and help guide jaw growth, where appropriate, I too love seeing my patients happy with the aesthetics of their results.
That’s one of the reasons why during every complimentary consultation, I use our smile simulator to show my patients what their final treatment will look like. Not only does it help them feel confident that the 6-24 month journey they’re about to embark on will be worth it, but it gives them incentive to focus on compliance. They know what we’re working towards from the very start - seeing is believing. And once you’ve seen what your smile can look like, you’re much more likely to stick to that 22 hour a day schedule with your clear aligners. :)
I became an orthodontist for many reasons but one of them is that I love building relationships with my patients and helping them to increase their self confidence. I see providing this glimpse into the future as an important part of each of those journeys. Knowing what our shared goal is helps me connect with my patients and helps them take pride in their treatment.
With so many pressures on our teens these days, including the pressure to take that perfect selfie, we want to help them realize the joy in their orthodontic journey. Knowing their end results from the beginning of treatment is one great way to do that.
If you’re considering orthodontic treatment for your child, tween or teen (or yourself!), we’d love to meet you. Our office is a no pressure practice and all consultations are complimentary.
