What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

23 May 2019

A dentist is concerned with your overall oral health. They carry out routine cleaning and dental health examinations and perform treatments like fillings, sealants and root canals. A dentist makes sure your mouth, teeth and gums are healthy.

An orthodontist is a specialist who makes sure your teeth and jaw are properly aligned and administer any treatment required to fix abnormalities.

Both a dentist and orthodontist must possess the correct qualifications for their separate fields and be registered with the relevant associations, such as the General Dental Council, in the case of orthodontists.
