Know the difference between Endodontics and Orthodontics.
Your smile is beautiful.
Let’s be honest. Maintaining that beautiful smile is
not an easy task. It is more than brushing and
flossing. Sometimes, you might encounter dental
issues that need special dental care. These issues
can range anywhere from misalignment of the jaw
to pain in the root of teeth.
Two such specializations within dentistry are
endodontics and orthodontics. The difference
between endodontics and orthodontics is
minute yet crucial to understand if you want to
take proper and regular care of a beautiful set
of teeth.
Endodontics is a medical practice that focuses on the
root canal issues. It is specifically focused on nerves,
blood vessels, and connective tissues. When the pulp
gets infected or inflamed due to nerve decay, deep
trauma, or other factors, it can cause significant pain
and discomfort. This is where ‘endodontists’ come in.
Endodontists are also referred to as ‘root canal
specialists.
Root Canal Therapy: Sometimes the infected pulp tissue
needs cleaning and disinfecting of the root canals.
Furthermore, it might also require sealing the tooth to
prevent additional infection. The root canal turns out to be
the most effective method to save the tooth.
Apicoectomy: In some cases, the infection persists at the
tip of the root. An apicoectomy involves surgically
removing the infected tissue at the root tip and sealing the
end of the root.
Management of Dental Trauma: Injuries to the
teeth can damage the pulp. Endodontists are
skilled at diagnosing and treating such dental
trauma.
Orthodontics department of dentistry deals with
the alignment of teeth and jaws. Misaligned
teeth cause a variety of problems. It might
include difficulty in chewing, speaking, and
maintaining oral hygiene.
What is
Orthodontics?
Braces: You must’ve heard of metal braces. It is the
most common example of orthodontic treatment.
They use a contraption of brackets and elastics that
move the teeth in the desired movement.
Aligners: Invisalign or clear aligners offer a
comfortable and invisible way to straighten teeth.
Headgear: In some cases, orthodontists may utilize
headgear in conjunction with braces to apply
additional pressure and correct jaw discrepancies.
Palatal Expanders: For younger patients with narrow
jaws, palatal expanders can create space for proper
tooth eruption and alignment.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, sensitivity, or
swelling, these could be signs of a pulp infection, and a
consultation with an endodontist might be necessary.
On the contrary, if you have concerns about crooked
teeth, crowded teeth, or misaligned bites, an
orthodontist can help create a treatment plan to
achieve a straighter smile. In many cases, your general
dentist will be able to diagnose the issue and refer you
to the appropriate specialist.
