The Role of an Addison Orthodontist

Orthodontists and dentists both play vital roles in maintaining oral health, but their areas of expertise differ significantly. Orthodontists specialize in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. They undergo additional years of specialized education focused on moving teeth and aligning jaws. Dentists provide general oral healthcare, including cleanings, fillings, and preventive treatments, but do not have the same level of training in orthodontic procedures. Seeing an orthodontist for teeth straightening options, like braces or clear aligners,  ensures expert care tailored to achieving optimal alignment and a healthier, more attractive smile.
