What Is An Orthodontist?

At Sunshine Orthodontics our goal is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care and treatment from the most qualified professionals available throughout Rhinebeck, Kingston, Wappingers Falls and surrounding Dutchess County areas.

Many people believe a dentist and orthodontist are the same thing but that’s not quite the case. The two professional titles certainly have some similarities, and they do work together, but orthodontics is a specific type of dental care. An orthodontist is a specialist that treats certain types of dental problems.

What Does An Orthodontist Do?

what-is-an-orthodontist-wappingers-falls-nyAn orthodontist such as Dr. Mansour 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:

Overbitewhere the upper front teeth stick out over the lower teeth
Underbitewhere the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
Cross bitewhen the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
Open bitespace between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
Misplaced midlinewhen the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
Spacinggaps between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
Crowdingwhen 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.

Orthodontics is a dental specialization that found necessity due to the large number of people who suffer from common (and sometimes complicated) dental problems that can only be treated by a licensed orthodontist. Dr. Ahmed Mansour is an expert orthodontist in the 12401 area who, alongside the talented team at Sunshine Orthodontics, help to rectify these classic orthodontic conditions.

There is a specific way that teeth should be situated in a person’s mouth that encourages proper chewing, oral health, and personal comfort. This is referred to as a “bite” and it is incredibly rare for a person to be born with a perfect one. Dr. Mansour strives to help create an optimum bite for all of our patients!

The Most Common Orthodontic Conditions

Chances are, if you have visited an orthodontist in the 12401 area, you have been diagnosed with one of a few, specific conditions. But, what exactly do they mean? Here are the most common orthodontic conditions, explained:

  •         Underbite: The lower, front teeth protrude in front of the upper front teeth when shut.
  •         Overbite: Opposite of an underbite, the bottom front teeth sit in front of the top front teeth, when shut
  •         Crowding: This is exactly what it sounds like! Essentially, there is not enough room for teeth to sit appropriately on the jaw, so they settle very close to each other.
  •         Spaced Teeth: The opposite of crowding, this occurs when teeth sit too far away from each other.
  •         Openbite: When the teeth and the jaw do not meet. This can make chewing difficult and is often caused by childhood thumb sucking..
  •         Crossbite: Misalignment between upper and lower front teeth, upper and lower back teeth, or both. This can also make chewing difficult!

As an orthodontist in the 12401 area, Dr. Mansour and the team at Sunshine Orthodontics have witnessed and corrected countless patients displaying these conditions. The most common form of corrective treatment is braces. They don’t just help to align teeth, but can be used to help rectify conditions affecting the jaw, itself. Reaching out to an expert orthodontist in the 12401 area will not only help improve your quality of life, but will help you create the beautiful smile you have always wanted!
