If you've never visited an orthodontist before, you might be wondering how they're different from your regular dentist.
Orthodontists are specialists in the field of preventing, diagnosing and treating the misalignment and appearance of teeth. They can also help correct any problems you have with your bite, by moving your teeth into the right position.
Anyone can use the services of an orthodontist. You might be referred by your dentist, or you may choose to book a consultation for your own peace of mind.
Your orthodontist will know which treatment option is most suitable for you. In many cases, you will need to wear braces or other orthodontic appliances to move your teeth into the correct position - and make sure they stay there.
