What is an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dental specialist who has undergone further training for at least 3 years specifically in the alignment of teeth and jaws after their basic degree in dentistry. The specialty deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malposition of teeth and jaws in children and adults.
Why would you need an orthodontic specialist
Orthodontist specialists are usually needed for one of the following two reasons:
A Uneven Smile
An uneven smile is generally caused by overcrowding in the mouth. This can be corrected by expansion and extraction can be avoided. This correction is usually for aesthetic purposes only. Correcting an uneven smile can be achieved with a varieties of braces either clear aligners or fixed braces.
Cross bite is a common condition where the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. This can lead to tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth. It can also create an Overbite where upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. This causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth. A specialise orthodontist will expand the arch or manipulate the jaw or arch to the correct shape to correct the problem.
