Why an Orthodontist in Mobile? Orthodontist vs. Dentist
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist.
All orthodontists are dentists first, even though not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist. As an orthodontist, Dr. Bennett has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan. All orthodontists, including Dr. Bennett, have to continue their formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving their license and certification.
Why does it matter if you see your Mobile Orthodontist?
Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists do, however, receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
An orthodontist may improve your treatment experience in the following ways:
- Providing more treatment options, with a variety of braces or therapies to choose from.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concern and anatomical characteristics.
- More efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office’s focus area of care.
- Knowing that you’ll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite discrepancies that need to be addressed.
- Being seen quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
Some individuals may think it’s easier to have their orthodontic work completed by their dentist, but convenience shouldn’t be a problem. You will only be stopping by your Mobile orthodontic office every six to eight weeks.
