Orthodontics Q & A

How is an orthodontist different from a dentist?

Orthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating malocclusion, which is the dental term for improper alignment of your teeth, jaw, or bite. Orthodontists begin as dentists, earning a doctorate degree in dentistry (DMD). Then they get specialized education and training in Orthodontics, while also completing requirements necessary to be awarded a Master’s degree in Orthodontics.

Dr. Condie has four years’ more training and experience treating Orthodontics problems than a typical dentist. Similar to seeking out a heart specialist if you have heart problems, you should seek out an Orthodontist for your teeth. Dr. Condie can diagnose and treat malocclusion, misalignment of teeth, improper bite, or jaw pain.

When do you need an orthodontist?

You may be a good candidate for Orthodontic treatment if you look in the mirror and see crooked or misaligned teeth, or when you realize that every time you bite down, your teeth don’t fit together properly. Some of the most common types of misalignments treated by Orthodontists include:   

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Misplaced midline
  • Teeth Spacing
  • Crowding

Many patients are referred to Dr. Condie when their dentist discovers a malocclusion due to a misalignment problem or improper bite, but you can contact Sunny Smile Orthodontics for an appointment any time you have a concern or question about irregular teeth.

For children, it’s a good idea to have your first Orthodontic appointment around age 8. This allows Dr. Condie to track teeth growth and tell you when it’s time for Orthodontics treatment to begin. When you come to your first visit, Dr. Condie gives you a thorough check-up, talks with you about the results. And if you need Orthodontic care, he’ll work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.
