Orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Dr. Kort Igel attended college and dental school. However, he also completed orthodontic school, including a three-year orthodontic residency. While dentists receive some orthodontic instruction, Dr. Igel’s training made him a specialist in this field, learning how to move and align the teeth and jaws.
While many people associate orthodontics with pre-teens and teenagers, Dr. Igel treats people of all ages, from children to adults. Teeth that are too crowded or spaced too far from one another can be properly aligned with orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics is also used to correct the problem of improperly aligned jaws. Orthodontics can be used to address potential developmental problems or issues that are still in their early stages.
Because no two sets of teeth are alike, Dr. Igel will develop a treatment plan designed just for you. He will use 3D X-rays, digital photos and digital scans of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan. He will discuss his recommended treatment plan during your consultation and explain the benefits and differences of both clear braces and Invisalign®.
