Although dentists typically are thought of in regards to oral wellness, orthodontists play a crucial role. Namely, these professionals deal with more serious dental concerns and use various tools to correct issues. These can range from shifted teeth to jaw irregularities. Devices orthodontists use often include:
- Braces or clear aligners
- Palatal expanders
You may need an orthodontist if you have misaligned teeth, biting problems, crowded or gaps in teeth, or jaw misalignment. These highly trained professionals specialize in correcting these issues, and their education sets them apart. They must attend 2-3 years of orthodontist residency training after their dental degree to become licensed.
