Very Important !! Choose a Qualified Orthodontic Specialist
Teeth, and sometimes entire facial structures, are permanently changed by orthodontic treatment. It is very important that the treatment be properly timed, appropriate for the condition, and expertly completed. Lip posture and chin position determine facial balance, profile, and smile presentation. Premature aging can be prevented, periodontal health be maintained, and abnormal wear prevented with appropriate orthodontic decisions and treatment. Simply aligning the teeth is not quality orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic specialists have extensive and specialized training that enables them to provide their patients with professional, personalized treatments. Dr. Lloyd B. Swiedom has studied two years beyond the four years of college and four years of dental school specifically for orthodontics. His Master of Science in Orthodontics certifies him as an orthodontic specialist. He has gone a step beyond and pursued the rigorous requirements of the American Board of Orthodontics to become board certified. As a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics he holds himself to a higher standard than average or just acceptable.
