An orthodontist is a dentist who furthers his education by attending a 2 or 3 year residency program in orthodontics at an ADA accredited dental school or hospital. Your orthodontist is able to straighten teeth, correct misaligned jaw structure, and improve the function of your smile. Teeth, and sometimes entire facial structures, are permanently changed by orthodontic treatment. It is important that the treatment be appropriate and properly completed. Orthodontic specialists have extensive and specialized training that enables them to provide their patients with professional, personalized treatments.
