Choose an Orthodontist for Your Smile

When you or your child need braces, where will you go? You may have noticed that many dentists are providing orthodontic treatments. Dentists are educated in treating oral health, including your teeth and gums. Orthodontists are specialists with additional years of training beyond dental school. They focus on moving teeth and aligning jaws. For the best results, choose an orthodontist who has specialized training in orthodontic care.

Why Choose an Orthodontist?

  • Orthodontists are dentists first
  • They take 2-3 years of additional training to specialize in orthodontics
  • Permanent teeth come in about age 7 and this is the recommended age to see an orthodontist
  • Braces may not begin immediately, but evaluation and treatment planning is important
  • Growth spurts in early teenage years yield fast orthodontic results
  • First, second or any opinions are free of charge

Straighter Teeth and Better Self-Esteem

Healthy, straight teeth are important for many reasons. If your child’s bite isn’t aligned properly, tooth decay, gum disease, earaches and headaches, biting, chewing, and speaking issues can occur. In addition, crooked or crowded teeth can affect self-esteem, making them feel uncomfortable around their peers. Rather than putting your kids in uncomfortable situations and at risk for oral health issues, bring them to Patritto Orthodontics in either our Ottumwa or Oskaloosa, IA location.

Client Testimonials
"I would recommend Patritto Orthodontics to everyone!! I went there when I was younger and since then, my nephew, son, daughter and even my mom has went there. Dr. Patritto is a perfectionist and wants to make your smile as perfect as it can be and I definitely appreciate that! My mom was told for years that she couldn’t have her teeth straightened, but Dr. Patritto thought it could be done. So at 66 years old my mom got braces, and less than 2 years later, she couldn’t be more thrilled to have a beautiful smile. Thank you!!!!!"
