Orthodontist Over Dentist
Why Choose Orthodontist Over Dentist for Straight Teeth?
Orthodontists are specialists whose entire time is dedicated to straightening teeth and aligning jaws. Orthodontists do not conduct any other type of dental work besides orthodontics, making them the expert in the area of straightening teeth. General dentists treat patients for other things such as fillings, cleans, crowns etc.
All specialist Orthodontists have a thorough understanding of dentistry as they have already completed a bachelor degree in dentistry (to become a dentist) and have at least 2 years of practice as a dentist. After this they have completed an additional 3 years of full time postgraduate study at university to receive specialist qualifications.
