It is not always easy to know which dental practitioner to consult in the event of a problem. Often confused, the general dentist and the orthodontist work in oral health treatments with two professions that complement each other, but are totally different.
What is the role of an orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a medical professional who performs the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of errors in the positioning or alignment of the mouth. Its role is essential to ensure good positioning of the teeth and jaw. There is no doubt that properly positioned teeth improve chewing, swallowing, vocalization and breathing. To avoid alignment and positioning anomalies while ensuring esthetic outcomes for your patients, an orthodontist is the specialist you need.
