The Importance of Having Straight Teeth

What is the Difference Between a Dentist and an Orthodontist?

Both dentists and orthodontists are oral care specialists driven by the same goal of caring for your smile, so you can feel confident and self-assured about your facial appearance.

A dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, look for any cavities, assess the health of your gums and provide any general treatment you might need such as x-rays, fillings, making crowns or even false teeth. This general type of treatment is what you receive when you visit the dentist for your routine check-ups. Dentists are usually the first to spot problems with your teeth that require referral to an orthodontist to obtain the right kind of specialised treatment.

An orthodontist however focuses on orthodontic treatment, such as dental braces, Invisalign or Six Month Smiles. These treatments help correct the alignment and position of teeth. We are probably the most qualified orthodontist in the UK, combining over 30 years of experience in dentistry and orthodontics so we can provide you with impeccable care and treatment.
