Some of our dentists are also Orthodontists, but what do Orthodontists do? They diagnose and treat misaligned teeth and jaws such as malocclusion. They create a treatment plan that includes braces and retainers, perform teeth straightening surgery.

They promote oral health and oral hygiene, repair cracked teeth, treat gum disease, such as gingivitis, fill and bond teeth.

Key Takeaways:

  • Orthodontists do much more than just fixing teeth. They can also help with realigning jaws and giving you the best oral health, they can.
  • An orthodontist can fix issues other than teeth such as misalignments all the way to braces and making a splint for your jaw.
  • Orthodontist can do more for you overall mouth health then just visiting a dentist. They can perform surgeries and fix things that a normal dentist cannot.
