What Makes Orthodontists Different from Dentists?

While orthodontists and dentists have similar backgrounds, they differ in their training, expertise, and the services they offer. All orthodontists are first trained as dentists, but they go through additional education and training to become specialists in orthodontics. They spend years learning how to move teeth, diagnose and treat various orthodontic conditions, and plan appropriate treatment options for each patient's unique case.

Why Seeing an Orthodontist Matters

Choosing to see an orthodontist can make a significant difference in your orthodontic treatment journey. Orthodontists have advanced training and experience that enables them to handle more complex orthodontic cases, such as severe bite problems, misaligned teeth, and other jaw-related issues. They have access to the latest technology and techniques, which means they can provide you with more efficient and effective treatment options, resulting in a beautiful, healthy smile.

Benefits of Seeing an Orthodontist

By choosing to see an orthodontist, you will benefit from:

  • A comprehensive range of treatment options that cater to your unique needs
  • Efficient and timely appointments as orthodontic care is their primary area of focus
  • The best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have complex orthodontic issues
  • Personalized treatment plans based on their extensive experience treating similar cases
  • Access to the latest technology and techniques for more effective and efficient treatment

While general dentists can perform basic orthodontic treatments, such as root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, and early childhood orthodontic care, orthodontists specialize in diagnosing and treating more complicated cases. They have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to guide you through your orthodontic treatment journey and ensure you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
