Orthodontist or Dentist: Who Should You See for Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontist or Dentist: Who Should You See for Orthodontic Treatment?

As we journey towards achieving optimal oral health, the roles of dentists and orthodontists often intertwine, leading to confusion about who to see for specific treatments.

While both professionals work towards improving your oral health, they serve distinct roles. So, let’s uncover the facts and get down to who should be performing your orthodontic treatment.

Dentist vs Orthodontist: Understanding the Distinction

Dentists are akin to general practitioners, providing a broad range of services like fillings, root canals and, sometimes, basic teeth alignment.

Orthodontists, on the other hand, are dental specialists who have undertaken additional years of training focused solely on tooth movement and facial development. They are experts in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities, including malocclusions or ‘bad bites’.

Why Choose an Orthodontist for Orthodontic Treatment?

Selecting the right professional for orthodontic treatment is crucial to achieving the best results. While some dentists may offer orthodontic procedures, they lack the specialised training that orthodontists undergo.

This additional expertise equips orthodontists to handle complex cases, provide more treatment options, and achieve the best possible results for your smile.

So, while it may seem convenient to get braces or Invisalign from your dentist, it’s worth considering the benefits of seeing a specialist who spends their entire professional life focused on orthodontics.
