FAQ

An orthodontist in Albany is a dental specialist who has additional studies focusing on the alignment of teeth and jaws. All orthodontists have studied as dentists but not all dentists choose to specialize as an orthodontist.

A specialized dentist like our orthodontist in El Cerrito has focused studies and experience making sure your teeth are not misaligned and can be corrected to avoid future damage. A dentist will promote good oral health and an orthodontist will ensure everything is in its place.

When you are referred to a specialist like an orthodontist in Richmond it’s probably because there’s a little issue with the position of your teeth so corrective appliances like braces and retainers are to be expected to solve those issues.

When cases are severe and require more invasive procedures, an orthodontist in Albany will work alongside an Oral Surgeon to ensure proper care and attention is given to the patient. Any surgical intervention in the head and neck requires in-depth training for implants, trauma, and IV sedation.

While all professionals trained in general dentistry can remove teeth, orthodontists will only perform extractions if it is deemed necessary as part of your orthodontist treatment strategy. Usually, you can visit a general dentist to get tooth extractions.
