Is Orthodontics the Same as Dentistry?
People are often confused with the orthodontists and dentists. There are a few similarities and a few differences between the two. The orthodontists and the dentists both specialize in improving the oral health of the patients, but in a different manner. Dentistry is a broad medical specialty where a dentist deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the oral cavity pathologies and any diseases affecting the teeth. Additionally, a dentist deals with the jaw, nerves, gums, and teeth.
While the orthodontist is a specialty within the dentistry. An orthodontist trains for the treatment of jaw defects and tooth misalignment. In simple words, all the orthodontists are the dentists but not all dentists are orthodontists. Practically, in comparison to the dentist, an orthodontist requires an additional training for its dental specialty in orthodontics. Therefore, a patient who has irregularities in biting and teeth alignment is referred to an orthodontist by a dentist.
Because an orthodontist specializes in helping patients with the alignment of their teeth, improving their bite, or fitting them for corrective braces and devices. It is the orthodontist who creates a plaster model on which the dental prosthesis develops. However, both the doctors can provide oral care in a dental office because both can deal with the teeth and gums.
The services provided by a dentist include; root canals, bridges, teeth whitening, dental crowns and gum disease treatment. The services provided by an orthodontist include treatment for misaligned teeth, overbite, underbite, and treatment for crowded teeth.
