What is an orthodontist, and what do they do?
An orthodontist is a specialized dental professional who focuses on correcting teeth and jaw alignment issues. They use a variety of tools and techniques, including braces, aligners, and retainers, to straighten teeth and correct malocclusions. Orthodontists work with patients of all ages, from children to adults, and are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of orthodontic problems. They also work closely with general dentists and other dental specialists to provide comprehensive dental care to their patients.
