A dentist and an orthodontist take care of humans oral health but they provide different services. An orthodontist offers these and many other services.
Orthodontists mainly provide braces. The process will align your teeth naturally in a proper way. Teeth that are overcrowded make it difficult to brush or floss between the teeth because of tight spaces. The gum disease, cavities and tooth decay can arise when you do not brush or floss in between the teeth. The orthodontist will prevent you from getting these oral conditions by correcting the tight spaces using braces. When the teeth lean too far backward or forward, you’re speaking patterns will be affected and that is why you need braces to adjust the position of the teeth. Braces prevent bone erosion because when teeth are not supported the jaw bone and gum tissues begin to erode.
The baby needs space maintainers to fill the spaces that are left when he or she loses teeth earlier. The space that is left by the tooth can grow other teeth therefore a child need the Spinners to prevent this from happening. The tooth on the side of the missing gap is attached to the wire from a tooth on the other side that has a fixed space maintainer fixed on it using a band.
If you do not need braces to straighten and align the crooked, you can use aligners. They fix all types of bad bites. They are invisible because they are made of plastic material. You do need to wear them everywhere you go if you feel uncomfortable. Aligners are easy to clean because you can remove them and clean them. You will quickly get used to them because they are soft and comfortable.

You will remove braces but keep the alignment of the teeth in the correct shape with removable retainers. They are either shaped, take the shape of a plastic aligner or a plate that is placed on the roof of the mouth with a metal bar which runs across the top front teeth. You can use them much longer than braces because they are durable and adjustable.
