Orthodontic Extractions Article

Posted by Oana on Mon, 29 Oct 2018

Possibly no area of orthodontics has generated more controversy or pendulum swings of opinion than the topic of extractions.

Possibly no area of orthodontics has generated more controversy or pendulum swings of opinion than the topic of extractions. The father of orthodontics, Edward Angle1 was fond of saying that the best orthodontic outcomes required a, “full complement of teeth”. However in his own text2 he declared that extractions were appropriate if “the jaws are small and the angles of inclination would be too great” and “placing the teeth in the line of occlusion would result in marked dental and labial prominence”. The 1950’s through the 70

This is the beginning of a regular feature of our website. An informational collection aimed at what I would call the “informed orthodontic consumer”. Many of our patients who arrive via the website have really done their homework. They are looking for a true specialist, not a general dentist who dabbles in orthodontics; an experienced practitioner (25 years and counting), and solid academic credentials (3 year Masters Degree program in orthodontics at Ohio State after dental school and a hospital residency). Most of our patients value

Welcome to Bentele Orthodontics - Orthodontist Colorado Springs - Creating Smiles by Touching Lives. Orthodontic Profile Enhancement Video.

Everyone associates orthodontics with crooked teeth and an improved bite. A less recognized benefit is the transformation of the facial profile and esthetics through orthodontics especially when combined with orthognathic surgery. Special thanks to our patient for allowing us to share this outcome.

Welcome to Bentele Orthodontics - Orthodontist Colorado Springs - Creating Smiles by Touching Lives. Clear Correct Aligner Treatment

This video shows a smile makeover with Clear Correct invisible aligners. A series of aligners similar to Invisalign are placed at 3 week intervals. Selected teeth are moved a maximum of 1/3 of a mm for each aligner to gently nudge teeth into a new position by remodeling the underlying bone. This patient also had cosmetic dentistry accomplished by the general dentist on the upper right central incisor to complete the transformation.

What our patients say...

We went to an evaluation at an orthodontist before this one and the price seemed kind of high so then I came to an evaluation here & not only was the price lower but immediately we felt very comfortable and loved the atmosphere of the office. The staff is wonderful, always on time & Dr. Bentele is a great Dr. - very knowledgeable, friendly & with excellent communication. I would recommend this practice to everyone!

We highly recommend Dr. Bentele and his practice. He is honest, friendly, skilled & timely - you name it. He and his staff are wonderful! Angela at the front desk is especially kind and helpful. Best of all - Dr. Bentele creates a wonderful outcome of beautiful teeth. I've experienced two other orthodontists with other children and Dr. Bentele definitely outshines all - in every way - even in cost! I can't speak highly enough about Bentele Orthodontics!

This office is extremely thorough in explaining all aspects of orthodontics from finances to procedures. I'm very confident in this office.

Dr. Bentele makes the patient feel comfortable with his skill and calm confidence. He's honest about the treatment needed and tries to keep the patient informed of the treatment.

Dr. Bentele is our orthodontist for our two children. He provided clear treatment plans with a practical approach. Dr. Bentele does all of the banding and bonding himself and the office appointments are appropriately scheduled. Our children get in and out quickly and the office is never overscheduled, resulting in short waits and unhurried treatment. We're very satisfied and would recommend our friends to see Dr. Bentele!

Dr. Bentele and all staff have been very professional and the cost was reasonable. The approach of not having braces on longer than necessary is one area where I have seen other children suffer (children who went to other orthodontists). The way Dr. Bentele explains what he is doing and why has been good for my daughter to learn the importance of her treatment. I appreciate Dr. Bentele's patience with us as we experienced a difficult financial time during the beginning of our process.
