What is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in braces for both children and adults. Orthodontists have completed dental school, just as your family dentist, but have also had additional training (called a residency) for an additional 2 to 3 years. During their residency the orthodontist learns not only about placing braces on teeth but also studies the growth and development of the jaws. From their background, orthodontists can determine developing bite problems at very early ages.
