Choosing the Right Orthodontist & WHY It Matters

In the realm of dentistry, the role of orthodontists transcends mere tooth alignment; it extends to shaping the very contours of the face through the principles of dentofacial orthopedics. Much like selecting the ideal plastic surgeon for facial rejuvenation, choosing the right orthodontist is a pivotal decision that can profoundly impact one’s appearance and self-confidence.

One of our Bucks County Orthodontics’ (BCO) Parents put it perfectly: “The results we have already seen have been outstanding. It is almost as if our children are getting plastic surgery (without the surgery) as the entire shape and structure of their smiles have changed and improved drastically.”

Here’s why you should entrust your ONE & ONLY SMILE to a skilled Board-Certified Orthodontist:

  • Understanding Facial Symmetry: Just as a plastic surgeon evaluates facial proportions and symmetry before performing cosmetic procedures, an orthodontist possesses a keen eye for dentofacial aesthetics. Orthodontists undergo extensive additional training to possess the skills necessary to analyze facial structure, jaw alignment, and dental positioning. Dr. Welsh has dental, advanced dental, surgical and Orthodontic training with a focus in periodontic health. This training allows him to devise treatment plans that enhance facial harmony and balance and ensure long term dental and oral health.
  • Comprehensive Approach to Treatment: Dentofacial orthopedics encompasses a comprehensive approach to orthodontic treatment that considers not only the alignment of the teeth but also the underlying skeletal framework of the face. Dr. Welsh assesses the relationship between the jaws, teeth, and soft tissues to optimize facial aesthetics and functionality. By addressing underlying skeletal discrepancies, he can achieve transformative results that go beyond mere tooth alignment.
  • Customized Treatment Plans: Dr. Welsh utilizes a diverse array of treatment modalities to achieve optimal results while preserving facial harmony and symmetry such as Palate expanders (when indicated), LightForce 3D Printed Custom Clear Braces and clear aligners such as Invisalign, Spark and Angel Aligner.
  • Emphasis on Facial Balance: By optimizing the alignment of the teeth and jaws, Dr. Welsh can enhance facial contours, correct asymmetries, and create a more aesthetically pleasing profile. The Characteristics of a BCO Smile include proper lip support, symmetrical gum tissues, properly shaped teeth, aligned midlines, maximum airway potential, wide arch width, a smile that follows your lip line, optimal profile aesthetics and an optimized bite for lasting results.
  • Collaboration with Specialists: To achieve comprehensive aesthetic outcomes that optimize both form and function, Dr. Welsh may work closely with Oral Surgeons, Prosthodontists, Periodontists, and other specialists to address complex dentofacial issues. Dr. Welsh regularly treats patients with complex interdisciplinary treatment cases including comprehensive treatment, orthognathic surgery, and full mouth reconstruction.
  • Focus on Long-Term Facial Stability: Dr. Welsh carefully considers the impact of treatment on facial growth and development so that he may foster facial balance and long-term dental stability. This helps our BCO Patients maintain a youthful, attractive appearance well into the future.
  • Patient-Centered Care: Dr. Welsh and our BCO Team place a premium on delivering patient-centered care that exceeds expectations. Orthodontic treatment is a collaborative process between Dr. Welsh and our patients, with open communication and shared decision-making at its core.
