The Expertise of Orthodontists Over General Dentists

Orthodontists are dentists who have completed additional specialized training in teeth alignment and bite correction, a key distinction from general dentistry. At Rio Grande Orthodontics, our orthodontists are experts in diagnosing and treating misalignments of the teeth and jaws, using advanced orthodontic procedures. This specialization ensures that our patients receive comprehensive care that not only improves the aesthetics of their smile but also enhances their overall oral health and functionality.
