Orthodontist Vs. Dentist: What Do They Do and How Are They Different?

Dentists and orthodontists both specialize in oral healthcare, but with different focuses. Dentists diagnose and treat various oral health conditions, while orthodontists specialize in tooth and jaw alignment. Dentists handle general oral care, including X-rays, fillings, extractions, and gum disease treatment, while orthodontists focus on misaligned teeth and jaws, providing treatments like braces and retainers. Both require extensive education, with orthodontists undergoing additional training in orthodontics after dental school.

What to Know About Orthodontic Spacers

Orthodontic spacers, also known as separators, are tiny rubber or metal appliances placed between teeth to create space before orthodontic treatment. These spacers help make room for braces, bands, or other orthodontic appliances by gently pushing teeth apart. They are typically inserted a few days or weeks before the scheduled orthodontic procedure, allowing the teeth to gradually move and align properly. While wearing spacers, patients may experience discomfort or sensitivity, especially while chewing. It's crucial to follow the orthodontist's instructions regarding care and avoid certain foods that may dislodge or damage the spacers, ensuring the success of subsequent orthodontic treatment.

Toothache Causes and Remedies for Relieve the Pain

A toothache refers to pain in or around your tooth. This discomfort can range from a minor issue, like gum irritation, to an indication of a larger problem, like tooth decay. However, toothache is sometimes referred pain. This means that the pain is caused by problems elsewhere in the body. A toothache should never be ignored. A toothache caused by tooth decay can be exacerbated if left untreated.
