Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosing, preventing and treating problems in the alignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment involves using braces, clear aligners plates and other corrective devices to move teeth and jaws into normal alignment. It may involve changing the position of the teeth or modifying the way the jaw grows.
Frequently Ask Questions
An orthodontist is a dentist who has undertaken an additional two or three years of full-time study and clinical training at university (usually a Masters degree) so they can specialise in orthodontics. This extra study is on top of the five years spent training as a general dentist. Orthodontists are the most qualified to diagnose, prevent and treat problems you may have in the alignment of your teeth and jaws.
No, a referral is not necessary to see a specialist orthodontist like Dr Gullotta. You should, however, have a general dental check-up before you start any orthodontic treatment. This is because there may be some dental problems eg dental decay or gum disease that may need to be addressed before orthodontic treatment can begin.
