What is an orthodontist?

The Specialist Orthodontists are highly trained in both traditional and invisible orthodontic techniques. See how their expertise and techniques can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Orthodontist vs dentist: what is the difference?

All dentists and orthodontists must complete a five-year Bachelor of Dentistry degree. The difference between a dentist and an orthodontist is that an orthodontist has gone on to pursue a further two to three years of specialist training to achieve a Masters in Orthodontics.

What do orthodontists do?

Orthodontists are specialists in aligning your teeth and jaws, and ensuring facial symmetry. They use orthodontic technology and equipment, such as braces, to correct problems such as crowding, spacing or bite issues.

Realignment of your teeth and jaws can only be done if your teeth and gums are in good health. That is why it is still important to visit your dentist regularly before and during orthodontic treatment.
