Change Your Smile, Change Your Life: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment

Clearing up the confusion about orthodontic care to help you get the most out of treatment

There’s a lot of confusion about orthodontics based on inaccurate and conflicting information. Dr. Depew cuts through it all in his new book, Change Your Smile, Change Your Life: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment. As an orthodontist with 30 years’ experience in patient care who uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques in his practice, Dr. Depew is the go-to expert on modern orthodontic care.

Orthodontics have come a long way from the ubiquitous metal braces of years past. In Change Your Smile, Change Your Life: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment, Dr. Depew discusses the various types of braces on the market today, as well as the latest technology you should know about like cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), 3D diagnostic intraoral scanners, panoramic X-rays, and celphalometric X-rays. He explains how advances in orthodontics can shorten treatment time and reduce discomfort while providing great results. He delves into the differences in treatment plans between children, adolescents, and adults, and explains why 7 is the right age for your child’s first orthodontist visit. Dr. Depew also shares how to afford orthodontic treatment and what to look for when choosing an orthodontist. Since this is someone you’ll be seeing regularly for two years during treatment, it’s important to get it right.

Orthodontic treatment can truly be life-changing. Change Your Smile, Change Your Life: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment arms you with the accurate, up-to-date knowledge and practical advice you need to optimize your investment and make smart choices in orthodontic care for yourself and your family.
