Orthodontists don’t just focus on making teeth straight and fixing bad bites – they also manage and enhance a person’s entire facial appearance and profile.
Orthodontists ensure patients are left with their most attractive smile and facial profile possible after treatment, taking into account the growth and ageing changes that occur over a person’s lifetime.
In addition to a general dental degree, orthodontists train for three years in a number of specialty areas including facial growth and development.
A highly-skilled orthodontist can correct crooked teeth, gappy teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites and other orthodontic issues very subtly and the result can actually be improved facial appearance and symmetry.
