What Orthodontists Do
How does the expertise of an orthodontist differ from that of a dentist? This video explains why you may want to see an orthodontist.
Like a dentist, an orthodontist must finish four years of dental school. However, whereas a dentist can begin practicing immediately upon completion of dental school, an orthodontist must undergo additional training to learn the specifics of mouth structure and teeth movement. This know-how allows orthodontists to correct teeth alignment issues. Only those individuals who successfully complete their orthodontic training can practice orthodontic treatment. A capable orthodontist can remedy issues ranging from gapped teeth to buck teeth to crowded teeth.
