How orthodontists and dentists differ

Although orthodontists and dentists share similar educational backgrounds, they have distinct differences in their professions. Orthodontists, in particular, are dentists who have completed additional education and training beyond dental school to become licensed and certified in orthodontics. While dentists focus on general oral health, orthodontists specialize in the movement of teeth and the correction of jaw alignment. This specialized education enables orthodontists to develop personalized treatment plans for their patients and execute them with precision and expertise.

Why seeing an orthodontist matters

To achieve a beautiful, straight smile that you can feel confident about, it's crucial to seek guidance from an orthodontist. This is because orthodontists undergo additional training that enables them to diagnose and treat more complex orthodontic cases. While dentists receive basic orthodontic training that allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not require orthodontic treatment, seeing an orthodontist is still necessary for those looking to achieve a perfectly aligned, healthy smile.

Seeing your Las Vegas orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:

    • Providing additional treatment options.


    • Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.


    • Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.


    • Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns


    • Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.


    • You may think it's easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a concern, because you will only be stopping by your City orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.


And don't let price be a problem either! Orthobar is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Las Vegas area.
