NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of individuals visit orthodontists in the hope of gaining a new smile and greater confidence. Trusting your smile with just anyone however, isn't recommended. When it comes to orthodontics, a lot of confusion is created by inaccurate, conflicting, and often deceptive information from multiple sources including, Facebook, the Internet, advertisements, well-meaning friends, non-professional and professional blogs, and YouTube videos. People are also confused by the fact that treatments and techniques vary among orthodontists. And there's even more confusion about having treatment done by a general dentist versus an orthodontist.
"With so many different technologies today, and so many providers to choose from, it's important to find someone who will give you the level of care you deserve" says, Dr. Depew. "My goal is to help clear the air and give you accurate information about orthodontics, some of the latest treatments available, and what you should look for when choosing a provider for you and your family."
In his recent book, CHANGE YOUR SMILE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment, Dr. Depew shares the importance of not only the science of orthodontics, but the artistry behind creating a beautiful smile. It's a provider's acute understanding of the body supported by cutting-edge technology and best practices that will ensure a successful experience.
"Orthodontics is the science of moving teeth into their proper positions and changing the shape of the jaws so the upper and lower rows of teeth fit together properly" says, Dr. Depew. "But there is so much more to orthodontics than just moving teeth. Much of what doctors and staff do also affects the facial profile, the shape of the face, the fullness of the lips, the ability to speak and swallow properly, even the ability to breathe effectively."
Change Your Smile gives readers specific insight into how training and experience make all the difference when choosing an orthodontist and the associated treatments for your unique situation.
CHANGE YOUR SMILE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment is available now at Amazon.com and other online retailers.
