Orthodontist There are many careers to choose from, especially from the medical field. I am interested in being an orthodontist, because i find it intriguing how they align crooked teeth, fix overbite and underbite or overcrowding. A orthodontist is a dentist who focuses on straightening crooked teeth and how jaws and teeth are aligned. Orthodontist usually work with kids that are over 10 years old. Orthodontist usually examine patients most of their day so it is essential that they have good communication skills and it's preferable that they have a good relationship with their patients since the patient has to be checked out every month.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one 's appearance. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
Four million Americans are currently wearing braces, that will soon have straight teeth. It is orthodontists that allow people to have straight teeth and that make patients confident in their smile. Orthodontist’s look at patient's teeth and determine the path that will be taken to allow them to have the perfect teeth that everyone dreams about. Orthodontic assistants put braces on, do regular checkups, change wires and fix any complications that the patients have. Orthodontic assistant are more independent, and do more work than dental assistants do.

Teeth are the most defenseless part of the body. They have, nor can they develop, any form of immunity to anything, yet they are susceptible to the most danger. We eat multiple times daily, which means there is plenty of opportunity for damages that affect the appearance of teeth such as unsightly stains, growing decay, and constant shifting. Quite naturally they may need a little extra care sometimes. The type of care that dental professionals provide that focuses on the aesthetic appearance of teeth is called Cosmetic Dentistry.
