Why an Orthodontist in Clinton Township?
Lifetime Orthodontics' Commitment to Excellence
Dentists and orthodontists both contribute to oral health, but their specializations set them apart. While dentists focus on general dental care, orthodontists like Dr. Wesley at Lifetime Orthodontics are experts in aligning teeth and jaws. With specialized training exclusively in straightening procedures, Lifetime Orthodontics ensures that patients receive precise, effective, and safe care. When it comes to crafting the perfect smile, the expertise of an orthodontist is unparalleled. Let's explore the multifaceted benefits of orthodontic treatment at Lifetime Orthodontics.
Proper alignment of teeth is more than aesthetic; it's essential for overall oral health. Lifetime Orthodontics emphasizes treatments that reduce the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, or tooth loss, and enhance functions like chewing, speech, and breathing.
A captivating smile, crafted by Lifetime Orthodontics, can be your asset in social interactions. It helps in making positive first impressions and building connections, whether in friendships or romantic relationships.
In the world of work, a confident smile symbolizes self-assurance and approachability. Lifetime Orthodontics recognizes the role of a beautiful smile in opening new professional doors and opportunities.

Why does it matter if you see your Clinton Township Orthodontist?
Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
Seeing a specialist like your Clinton Township orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:
- Providing additional treatment options.
- Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.
- Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
- You may think it's easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a concern, because you will only be stopping by your Clinton orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.
