Braces - Importance of having an Orthodontist

An update on my braces.

Just wanna say I feel thankful that my braces journey with TLC Dental Centre has been a pleasant one so far. My lifestyle wasn't compromised because of my choice to wear braces, and I wasn't too restricted in terms of my daily diet. I could still eat my favourite food like fried chicken and all that very easily. Best thing is, ceramic braces allowed me to still look good in photos - it wasn't too obvious in most of my pics!

Can't wait to finish my braces term and emerge with beautiful teeth and smile! So far my front teeth is quite straight already, just waiting to close the extraction gaps and align I guess.

I just went to have my teeth tightened and had a discussion with Dr Enrica Sham about the difference between having an Orthodontist and a regular Dentist to work on your braces. An Orthodontist is one who have received additional years in advanced specialty training and generally have more knowledge and experience in braces and fixing patient's teeth and jaw alignment. This is very important for braces because you definitely want someone who can ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment that is best suited for individual needs.

Specialists tend to be more efficient at achieving the best results and having braces done at TLC Dental Centre ensures that. You will also meet Dr Enrica Sham on every single braces appointment, so you have the same person who knows best about your teeth throughout the journey. Well, at least to me, I feel more assured.
