Orthodontist | Caroline Manuel DDS - Eunice, LA

What Is An Orthodontist?

A dental specialist who diagnoses and treats dental and facial irregularities. An orthodontist (like me) is trained to straighten and align teeth and jaws with braces.

I think it's an exciting time to be an orthodontist because there are new technologies coming out frequently which help me to better treat my patients. There are also new and exciting fields for orthodontists such as cosmetic braces and cosmetic dentistry, which we are proud to offer from our offices as the leader in orthodontics in Eunice, LA. Cosmetic dentistry is geared toward adults, and is a process of using discreet braces to correct the form of the face and teeth.

What is it Like To Visit an Orthodontist?

Many patients ask me what to expect when they visit our office. We like to think that it's sort of like visiting the dentist, only better. Many of our patients love coming to visit us to see the progress their teeth have made, to perhaps change the color of their braces, and to enjoy some time with our friendly staff and me.

Here is an example of what will happen when you come in for your free initial consultation with an orthodontist:

We begin by taking a full set of digital photographs and x-rays, as well as a facial type and skeletal analysis. The latter analysis assesses facial growth, your bite, the alignment of your teeth, the health of soft tissues, and the function of the jaw joints and adjacent supporting structures.

Once I have all of the information required to make an assessment, you and I, or another member of my fantastic team, will sit down and discuss your cosmetic and functional goals (in everyday, understandable languageā€”no technical jargon), and how they can be accomplished with orthodontic treatments.
