  • Major issue or minor issue, it doesn't matter.

  • Your oral health should definitely not be taken for granted.


What does a Dentist do?

  • Almost all of us have visited a dentist at least one point in our lives. Although, it is essential to visit the dentist for regular check-ups, cleaning and x-rays of our teeth to maintain a good overall oral health.

  • For the most part, you should visit a dentist at least twice a year to maintain a good oral and dental health.


  • What does an Orthodontist do?

  • An orthodontist is a specialised professional who is an expert in correcting crooked teeth, overbites, underbites and also, irregular teeth.

  • This is where an orthodontist has an edge over a dentist. But generally, a dentist is also licensed to perform orthodontic procedures and who does a better job at it depends on the experience and on how well they can evaluate a person's teeth and how skilled their hands are.


  • How to choose?

  • We have seen that all dentists cannot perform orthodontal procedures but all orthodontists can perform dental procedures.


  • The dentist is great for the following oral health issues.

  • General health and well-being of your teeth and gums including general cleaning of your teeth.

  • If you have tooth decay, broken teeth and cavity 

  • Teeth and gum related diseases such as periodontal disease or gingivitis. 

  • Dentists will also evaluate your oral health and give you specific advice regarding hygiene


  • Orthodontists, on the other hand, can provide you with the following services.

  • Overcrowded, misaligned or irregular teeth can be fixed by an orthodontist as they specialise in braces.

  • When you have teeth overbites or underbites. 

  • For teeth whitening, prosthetics/ implants, crowns etc.


  • An orthodontist specialises in evaluating the alignment and the proper course of action required to fix the issue.
