The key to a great smile and healthy gums starts with who you choose to trust with the responsibility of overseeing your dental care. The best way for you to make an informed decision is to do your research. While looking into the field of dentistry, you’ll find that there is a distinction between a dentist and an orthodontist.
Brodsky Orthodontics believes in educating our patients whenever we can and would like to continue to do so by recognizing this distinction. While all orthodontists are considered to be dentists, general dentists are not certified orthodontists. Although dentistry is a very broad area of medicine that has to do with your teeth, gums, nerves, and jaw, the specialty of orthodontics primarily deals with bite correction, occlusion (relationship between upper and lower teeth), and the straightness of your teeth.
Both your dentist and your orthodontist focus on oral care. Both are considered doctors and both deal with teeth and gums. However, for a dentist to be called an orthodontist, additional schooling is required to become a dental specialist. A similar scenario would be a doctor who goes through additional schooling in order to become a surgeon. Orthodontists, in particular, specialize in helping patients repair the alignment of their teeth, in order to improve the aesthetics and functionality of their bite. They do this by fitting patients with corrective braces, aligners and other such devices. So, for example, if a patient has a major overbite, the dentist should either refer him/her to an orthodontist or the patient should independently seek the opinion of an orthodontist.
In short, a dentist can help with such conditions as tooth decay, teeth whitening, root canals, gum disease, crowns, bridges and veneers. An orthodontist provides services related to crowded or crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, overbite and underbite, since they primarily focus on the alignment of teeth.
At Brodsky Orthodontics, located in Lakewood, we urge you to stay on top of taking care of your teeth the best way you can. This will allow you to keep your natural teeth longer by avoiding tooth decay and periodontal disease, oral health problems that can lead to larger problems like malnutrition, obesity and heart disease. We encourage and insist that all of our patients schedule regular visits with their general dentist in order to ward off any dental issues that might arise.
However, when deciding about pursuing orthodontic treatment, be to ask these important questions of your doctor:
It is important to recognize the difference between a trained Orthodontic Specialist and someone practicing orthodontics without attending an accredited orthodontic residency program. Here at Brodsky Orthodontics, we are true specialists and we look forward to treating your orthodontic needs and giving you a smile which will last a lifetime!
