Orthodontics involves more than just straightening teeth. Specially trained orthodontists, rather than general dentists, understand the complexity of growth development and facial form. Treatment plans include issues related to the jaw and bite, not just movement of teeth, which is why you want to receive care from someone trained in this specific type of dentistry.
There is a reason orthodontists go through additional years of highly competitive orthodontic school – to learn and perfect their ability in the specialty. A general dentist is ideal for providing regular oral health checkups, comparable to your family physician. Many general dentists offer orthodontic treatment plans, but have not been formally trained or educated in the area.
A board certified orthodontist is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to ensure quality work. Additionally. board certified orthodontists must renew their certification every 10 years to demonstrate their continuous commitment to excellence.
