An orthodontist is a specialized dentist who focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating facial and dental irregularities, such as malocclusions (bad bites). They undergo an additional two to three years of university-based study and gain extensive clinical experience in an orthodontic residency program after becoming fully qualified dentists.

Being a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) adds assurance that someone with specialty education in oral biology and biomechanics administers treatment. The AAO recommends children be examined by an orthodontist around age seven to catch any developing jaw and tooth irregularities early.

Orthodontists specialize in correcting teeth and jaw misalignments, addressing issues such as underbites, overbites, overcrowding, and aesthetic concerns. These misalignments can cause problems like speech defects, difficulty chewing, and challenges in maintaining oral hygiene. Using various devices and treatments, orthodontists realign teeth and jaws to create a beautiful, even smile and improve overall oral health.
