What is an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a type of dentist who corrects overbite, underbite, and other abnormal bites using oral appliances and corrective treatment. They evaluate things like jaw alignment, crowded teeth, crooked teeth, teeth grinding, cheek biting, and more, and then plan the best course of treatment. Orthodontists treat patients using tools like braces, invisible braces (such as Invisalign), retainers, and palate wideners. Treatment can make it easier for patients to chew, bite, and even talk.
