Orthodontic treatments are recommended if the patient wants to improve the teeth aesthetics and have a straight smile. However, if you have any of the following issues, you should look for a specialized dentist for orthodontics:
Spacing: when there’s too much space between teeth
Crowding: not having enough space in the mouth for all the permanent teeth
Crossbite: when upper and bottom teeth don’t meet properly
Underbite: when the lower teeth stick out further than the upper teeth – covering the upper teeth
Overbite: when the upper teeth stick out further than the lower teeth – covering the upper teeth
Open Bite: when upper and lower teeth don’t meet when the patient bites
Asymmetric Midlines: when the centerline of the lower and upper teeth don’t meet properly
Upper Teeth Protrusion: when the upper teeth stick out more than the bottom teeth
Orthodontists are dentists who specialize in orthodontics. They are trained to diagnose and fix problems like bad bites, jaw alignment, and crooked teeth. They are the most qualified professionals to treat the most complex orthodontic problems.
All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Both dentists and orthodontists help to improve their patients’ oral health. However, dentists work more generally, while orthodontists help patients with tooth correction problems correcting bites, straightening the teeth, and related issues.
