Orthodontist VS Dentist

Why Choose a Specialist Orthodontist?

  • General dental practices provide lots of different dental treatments, eg. check-ups, fillings etc. Whereas specialist orthodontic practices usually only provide orthodontic treatment. Some dental practices will offer orthodontics but a general dentist will usually have undergone less formal training and may have less experience than a dedicated specialist.
  • An orthodontist has trained as a dentist but has embarked on further specialist training in the field of orthodontics. This postgraduate training equips an orthodontist to correct a patient’s teeth and jaws to ensure they’re in alignment with their overall facial profile.
  • Because we’re only providing orthodontic treatment, we see a range of patients including complex and challenging cases. This means we have experience to answer your questions and advise on the best course of treatment.
  • We’re also able to offer a variety of different braces types, offering our patients the best results and aesthetics. These include clear fixed braces, hidden lingual braces and Invisalign removable braces.

For the very best orthodontic results, your teeth should be in optimal health, so it’s important to continue seeing your dentist regularly during treatment. It’s only when you need treatment concerning the alignment of your teeth that you should see a specialist orthodontist.
