We are faced with the selection process every day: clothing, food, appliances, etc. We know what criteria to select good masters for repair. We understand the gradation of hotels and restaurants according to the number of stars. We understand what is included in the package of services and what is not. And on this background, to almost the most important in the life of choice - the choice of a doctor - we often come naughty. On the principle: from the nearest clinic or with the cheapest price for treatment. And then we complain about the unsatisfactory result. So how to choose Orthodontics correctly?

MAIN RULES: ORDODNOTE SHOULD BE SELECTED RETELY, COMPLETING THE NECESSARY INFORMATION ABOUT THE MEDICINE, CLINICAL AND PRICE POLICY.
The doctor must be an orthodontist and have a certificate confirming his right to engage in this type of care. The diploma of a dentist does not allow the doctor to conduct orthodontic treatment. The university gives only a general idea of ​​orthodontics. And only in the process of postgraduate education the doctor receives the necessary amount of information. For example, a flight school gives an idea of ​​how a spacecraft is built, but does not give it the right to control it. Nevertheless, the pilot must become a pilot-cosmonaut.

Orthodontics is a science that is changing very rapidly. And in order to carry out treatment at the modern level, the doctor must constantly study: attend lectures, seminars, congresses. For example, we always prefer a tailor who watches for trendy trends than a tailor who can sew dresses only in the 80's fashion. So how was taught him once.

Do not overlook the results of the doctor's work. The presentation "before and after treatment" is usually placed on the clinic's website. When we invite craftsmen to do repairs at home, we first see how they have done repairs to someone to us.

This information can be found in the orthodontist's resume and if everything is OK, you should get to know the doctor personally.

In the course of consultation, the doctor examines the patient, tells him general information about the possible treatment and the amount of additional research required for diagnosis. Remember the doctor who is going to treat you without a diagnosis - a fake. As an architect who begins to build a house without looking at the site without creating a project and laying the foundations. For orthodontic diagnosis, X-rays, extra-and intra-day photographs, models, and sometimes the results of computed tomography (CT) are required. He can advise you on the advice of another specialist: otorhinolaryngologist (lor), osteopath, neurologist. This is absolutely normal. A competent physician will never be in a hurry with a staging of equipment. Only the one who wants to profit faster is hurrying. That is, in whom the businessman won the doctor. Such doctors usually attract a patient with false information or hide the dark side of treatment.

It is necessary to be alert if the orthodontist states that:

  • You do not need to visit a dentist before setting up the equipment
  • treatment will take less than a year
  • after moving the teeth it will not be necessary to hold the result with the retina,
  • treatment has no contraindications and complications,
  • the result will be perfect.
    Of course, there can be exceptions to any rule, for that it's a rule.
    About the choice of the clinic. The clinic can be chosen like a hotel. You determine which level of "star" is right for you. Do not expect a great service in a cheap "trinity".
    About the cost of treatment. Ask yourself that the price is a package "all inclusivе" or the cost that the administrator informed you in the telephone mode. Often, only the cost of the fixing procedure is announced, and you will pay for the repeated visits separately. Unfortunately, some clinics in this way lure patients by giving the cost of part of the process for complete. During treatment there are additional payments, which the patient is forced to agree, since he is already in the process of treatment.


MEMORY, AT THE STAGE OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT TO CHANGE A DOCTOR WILL BE VERY COMPLEX. FASTER FOR ALL, MAKE CHRISTMAS FROM NULL AND PLAY DIRECTLY. THAT IS BETTER "SEVEN DIFFERENT DIFFERENCES" ...
