Dentist, orthodontist, it’s all the same. Wait, no it’s not.
Isn’t an orthodontist a type of dentist. So what is the difference?
Orthodontics is focused on structural issues related to the teeth. Orthodontists, like Dr. Sharma spend at least a few years of schooling concentrating on structural areas within dentistry. Their specialty is in correcting the alignment of teeth and jaws.
The long years of study to become a dentist, become even longer for those who wish to become fully qualified orthodontists. After completing a five year Dental Surgery degree, the typically continue with a three year masters degree in Orthodontics. A regulatory body such as the Canadian Board of Orthodontics would then further test their level of expertise.
It is important to note, that orthodontics work in unison with dentists. You wouldn’t normally go to the orthodontist office for procedures such as tooth fillings or extractions. Instead, impacted teeth, underbite, and crowded teeth are the kind of conditions orthodontics focus on treating.
The job of an orthodontist is varied, but it can help anyone that has a problem with his or her smile, allowing you to look brilliant. When you visit with Dr. Sharma at Aura Orthodontics, your teeth will be looked at by an absolute expert in the field. Whether you have an overbite, under bite, or you have any sort of issue with the alignment of your teeth, they can be fixed. The first step to getting them perfect is to book a consultation appointment.
