Denver CO Just about everyone is aware that an orthodontist will give you braces, but what exactly is an orthodontist? How does an orthodontist differ from a dentist? Dr. Jonathan Weinbach whose Smile Zone Orthdontics, a Denver, CO orthodontics practice, offers various different kinds of braces, answers some of these questions.

A branch of dentistry, orthodontics specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and care for dental and facial problems. Orthodontics demands professional skill and experience in designing and using braces (and other corrective devices) to move teeth and jaws into the best alignment. Orthodontists are experts in fixing “bad bites,” shifting teeth, and assisting jaws in developing correctly.

“Every orthodontist is a dentist who has graduated from dental school,” observes Dr. Weinbach, a Denver invisible braces provider. “But, orthodontists have between 2 and 3 years of focused education following dental school. This additional education makes an orthodontist the expert at ensuring that teeth function the right way.”

An orthodontist must finish an additional residency program in an accredited school, which includes various studies like biophysics, embryology, human growth and development, and genetics. Only after obtaining this training can dentists call themselves orthodontic experts.

Remember that orthodontists only do orthodontics so they receive lots of practice. “Your general dentist may tell you that he or she can give you braces; however, absent the orthodontists specialized education and years of experience,” explains Dr. Weinbach, a Denver orthodontist, “regular dentists simply dont have the same amount of experience.”

“Sometimes dentists will tell their patients that they can fix a ‘simple problem and orthodontists only handle the complicated situations,” notes Denver braces provider Dr. Weinbach. However, only orthodontists have the experience to recognize the difference between an simple situation and a more complex one.”

In addition, orthodontists are aware of all of the most recent techniques and latest advancements in the discipline. “Orthodontists can describe all of your choices,” says Dr. Weinbach, a Denver, CO Damon System expert. “Your orthodontist will know about new techniques or equipment that will shorten your treatment, making it more comfortable and more effective.”
