What’s the Difference Between an Orthodontist and a Dentist?

Papandreas Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that involves the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. An orthodontist is highly-skilled at using various techniques to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment.

Orthodontist v's Dentist - Happy child undergoing orthodontic dental treatment- bracesCorrecting bites, occlusion, and crooked teeth is orthodontist Samuel Papandreas‘ specialty. As an Elite Preferred Invisalign Provider, Dr. Papandreas’ mission is to provide superior speciality Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics for each one of his patients within a nurturing setting.

I Was Smiling Yesterday, I Am Smiling Today and I Will Smile Tomorrow

Smile Quote Santosh Kalwar

Believe it or not, but your smile has a huge impact on your self-esteem. The happier you are with yourself and your appearance, the more you smile. Having crooked teeth could cause you to shy away from smiling, but that does not have to be the case. An experienced orthodontist can help you get the oral care that you need, in order to keep smiling, brightly.

Bracing Yourself for a Smile

Your smile is something that cannot be taken off each day, in comparison to an article of clothing or your favorite accessory. You carry your smile with you daily, which is why you should get the treatment that you need from a professional orthodontist who will work hard so that you can keep smiling.

Correcting a bad bite can help restore your smile, and it all begins with orthodontic treatment. Malocclusion (bad bite) can be treated through braces. The main purpose of this corrective procedure is to:

• Straighten your teeth
• Correct your jaw line alignment
• Put a smile back on your face

You will receive the information necessary to maintain great oral hygiene while your braces are on. An orthodontist will also go over the importance of a well-balanced diet, and what foods you should avoid completely while wearing braces. You want to do everything that we can to ensure that your corrective treatment is a success so that you can smile since life is too short to frown.

Other Orthodontic Needs

An orthodontist is skilled to help you receive the oral care and treatment necessary to put a smile on your face. Some of the other orthodontic needs that an orthodontist may specialize in are:

• Overbites
• Underbites
• Hyperdontia
• Grinding of the Teeth (Or clinching of the teeth)
• Gaps

Do not put off getting your Orthodontic braces any longer. Your oral care should always be a huge priority. Dr. Samuel Papandreas can provide you with the orthodontic care that you need, and deserve. Contact Dr. Papandreas’ office today, in order to get rid of your frown so that you can smile as the smile quote says life is too short for anything else!

Smile Quote Steve Maraboli
If your child has crooked, misaligned or crowded teeth, getting him or her fitted for braces is probably the best option to correct his or her teeth. Braces improve your child’s oral health and they give him or her the confidence to smile at strangers, friends, and family without hesitation.
