Case Study - The Need for Quality
Orthodontic Care

Orthodontic treatment is important for several reasons. Alignment of the teeth and jaws can prevent more-extensive dental treatment later in life. In some patients with severe jaw misalignment, preventive orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatment might also prevent jaw surgery later in life. Facial esthetics and the positions of the lips can also be improved with orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics is more than just straightening teeth; it can provide the foundation for proper tooth, jaw and lip support. 

The first step toward achieving a beautiful, healthy smile is to
schedule an appointment with an orthodontist.

The Myth of Maintaining A Healthy Smile

Braces cost a fortune.

FACT: You may be surprised to learn that the cost of braces isn’t all that different from decades ago – in fact, orthodontic treatment is still one of the best deals around. Dental insurance often covers a portion of orthodontic treatment, and Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics will work with you to find a payment plan that will fit comfortably into your budget.

Any dentist can put on braces.

FACT: While it is true that more dentists are offering orthodontic treatment in their offices, they don’t do this all day, every day. Most dabble in orthodontics, finishing only a handful of cases per year. You only get one smile so most would prefer to trust a certified orthodontist that has the knowledge and experience to provide the best possible treatment. Orthodontists perfect smiles through orthodontic appliances day in and day out, and are well-versed at moving even the most difficult malocclusions.

I don’t have to visit the orthodontist until all my permanent teeth are in.

FACT: Actually, seven is the recommended age for children to have their first orthodontic consultation. This allows the orthodontist to view the relationship between the jaw and face with the incoming permanent teeth, and determine if there is any cause for concern. Early interceptive treatment can actually help a growing jaw develop properly, and for many children, can make any future orthodontic treatment less extensive and complicated.

Invisalign is only for minor tooth movement.

FACT: Invisalign, in the hands of a skilled practitioner, can be used to correct almost any orthodontic problem that braces can. Invisalign moves teeth differently than braces do, so the success of the treatment plan relies on the orthodontist’s understanding of the mechanics of aligner therapy.

You can buy Invisalign online

FACT: This is False. Invisalign is only available by visiting your local Orthodontist or Dentist. You cannot buy Invisalign through a smile club, Amazon, or any other internet outlet. These online vendors make their products sound like Invisalign but they are not.
As 3d printers and CNC technology continues to become more sophisticated, companies are starting to offer DIY orthodontic aligners. There are 2 major concerns with online Doctor Directed (DIY) treatment. 1) Technicians, not dentists, create the aligners without ever seeing the patient. 2) The aligners can be completely ineffective due to the use of poor-quality plastic and a generic prescription created by a technician or novice dentist.

Invisalign is just a product so it’s the same everywhere.

FACT: Invisalign is a service, as it is a custom-made appliance, and its success depends on the treatment planning skills of the doctor. While any dentist can offer Invisalign and get aligners made by technicians without any formal training, great results require the expertise of an orthodontist experienced in Invisalign. Therefore, when comparing the cost of treatment, it is very important to consider the skill of the doctor.
Dr. Megan LeCornu is one of only 25% of orthodontists in the nation to be Board-Certified. Dr. LeCornu is one of only six-Board Certified Orthodontists in the Santa Clarita Valley, and the only female Board-Certified Orthodontist in the area.
