What is an orthodontist?

This is a very common doubt that comesΒ Β around the π‘«π’†π’π’•π’Šπ’”π’•π’“π’š π‘­π’Šπ’†π’π’…… Please take your time to read this very valuable information for you .Β 

Although there are some General Dentists that offer Orthodontic Treatments such asΒ Β π‘°π’π’—π’Šπ’”π’‚π’π’Šπ’ˆπ’, 𝑩𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒆𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π‘Ήπ’†π’•π’‚π’Šπ’π’†π’“π’”, unfortunately patients are rarely aware of the amount of training the dentist has had in the Orthodontics field, plus their experience with a particular appliance and with complex cases.

What is the difference between aΒ π‘«π’†π’π’•π’Šπ’”π’•Β and anΒ π‘Άπ’“π’•π’‰π’π’…π’π’π’•π’Šπ’”π’•? Quite simple! Both are General Dentists.

In Dental School, they both learned things like cleaning teeth, extracting teeth, removing cavities and placing fillings. Once a dentist graduates from dental school, they go on to practice General Dentistry.

Now, In order to become anΒ π‘Άπ’“π’•π’‰π’π’…π’π’π’•π’Šπ’”π’•, a dentist has to then continue with his/her education by undergoing a competitive entry, three (3) year postgraduate degree course. During this time he/she will be dedicated to receive a full time training in both clinical and academic studies focused only inΒ π‘Άπ’“π’•π’‰π’π’…π’π’π’•π’Šπ’„π’”.

Upon completion of this extensive training, they become an Orthodontics Specialist. So ,Β Β that is an 𝑢𝑹𝑻𝑯𝑢𝑫𝑢𝑡𝑻𝑰𝑺𝑻.

So, if you see aΒ π‘Ίπ’‘π’†π’„π’Šπ’‚π’π’Šπ’”π’•Β π‘Άπ’“π’•π’‰π’π’…π’π’π’•π’Šπ’”π’•, you can have the confidence that the dental professional has had considerable experience in this particular field of Dentistry.

This is the reason why an Orthodontist shouldΒ Β always be your first choice when it comes to any dental treatment that involvesΒ Β the correction ofΒ π‘©π’Šπ’•π’†Β π‘·π’“π’π’ƒπ’π’†π’Žπ’”, andΒ π‘»π’†π’†π’•π’‰Β π‘Ίπ’•π’“π’‚π’Šπ’ˆπ’‰π’•π’†π’π’Šπ’π’ˆΒ π’‚π’π’…Β π‘¨π’π’Šπ’ˆπ’π’Žπ’†π’π’•
