Who is an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is someone who deals in a special form of dentistry regarding the correction of bites, straightening of the teeth, misalignment, and overcrowded mouth cases. Their specialty is to repair these conditions. They are different from dentists who work on teeth, gums, and jaw issues. Although the field is the same, you must note that all orthodontists are dentists too but not all dentists are orthodontists. However, the main focus of both is oral and dental care.
The duties and responsibilities of an orthodontist are different from a dentist. He must see to the issues you face in terms of your teeth and mouth. It is their responsibility to undergo the right training and then it becomes their duty to apply their training to the patients. They specialize in fixing misaligned teeth. If you need to correct your teeth, your dentist will refer you to an orthodontist. Do not worry if your dentist asks you to approach an orthodontist. It doesn’t mean that he is avoiding you or pushing your case onto someone else. It just means that your case belongs to the field of dentistry that an orthodontist specializes in.
It is when you are required to visit him if and when your teeth aren’t quite right. If that is the case, then the orthodontist will recommend you to have braces fixed or apply other techniques for teeth alignment. The famous method widely used nowadays is Invisalign. Most orthodontists refer their patients to opt for this procedure.
The other responsibilities that an orthodontist deals with it are tight alignment, fixing up the spaces between teeth, extraction of excess teeth that are causing issues in terms of spacing, etc.
These are mostly the case with children. Orthodontists have all the right tools and the apt knowledge to solve these types of teeth problems. Usually, the main solution is always the fixture of braces. Braces encircle the teeth and brackets are bound in front of them with the help of wires connected to them. These metal structures help align the teeth upright, making them straight over some time. It isn’t an immediate procedure but given a good amount of time, it works effectively. They also help with speech impediments and proper chewing habits for children and adults alike, which tend to further lead to issues like tooth and jaw damages.
If braces aren’t a good option, there is another better teeth alignment procedure called Invisalign. The orthodontist will make use of clear aligners. These help you correct your teeth with minimal effort and aren’t visible from afar making your smile more attractive. They are easily removable and unlike braces, there are no brackets nor any metal wires.

When it comes to dental implants, it is not that of a tedious procedure. These are just replacements for tooth roots. Via surgery, they are positioned right into your jawbone and metal posts are used as implants. Later, the dentist will mount a replacement tooth on top of the implant that looks exactly like your natural tooth. This acts as a permanent basis to match your natural teeth. You needn’t worry if you have lost your tooth for any reason and want to replace it. Implants have now replaced bridges and dentures that were previously used and these work wonders.
Dentists at Invisindia will prepare the right treatment plan for the implants and with the help of X-rays and 3D images, they will select the best-suited implant option for you. The steps of the procedure will include processes like osseointegration, abutment attachment, drilling holes, securing and bonding it in place. Our experienced dentists ensure you are free from any pain as this process doesn’t involve much pain in the first place itself. We also help treat post-treatment side effects and prescribe the required medicines to soothe the pain. We also make use of local anesthesia during the treatment. Stitches are used and your dentist will call you to take them out if they aren’t self-dissolving.
Our dentists also will educate you on post-treatment care which you need to take along with the steps you need to follow.
