What Does An Orthodontist Do?

Orthodontics in Atlanta & Marietta, GAAn orthodontist such as Dr. Venn is a fully qualified dentist who takes on an additional 2-3 years of orthodontic schooling and gains extensive clinical experience in an orthodontic residency program. The American Association of Orthodontists is the overseeing body for this branch of elite dentistry.

The most important job for an orthodontist is identifying, treating, and preventing issues with your teeth and mouth. Orthodontists are experts at treating misaligned or overcrowded teeth, as well as bite problems (malocclusions). Malocclusions can also result when the upper and lower jaws don’t fit together properly, whether from premature loss of baby teeth, developmental abnormalities, trauma, or other causes.

Orthodontic Treatment

If you suffer from any of the following issues, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

Overbite where the upper front teeth stick out over the lower teeth
Underbite where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
Cross bite when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
Open bite space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
Misplaced midline when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
Spacing gaps between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
Crowding when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

Types of Treatments

  • Traditional Braces – made from a high-grade stainless steel with metal brackets and archwires, which put pressure on teeth to move slowly into the correct position.
  • Clear braces – work in the same way as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear, transparent ceramic material.
  • Invisalign – custom-made removable clear aligners that are virtually invisible and work in increments.
  • Invisalign Teen – clear aligners that are removable and virtually invisible to ensure you still enjoy your favorite foods and social events.
