Orthodontists specialise in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. They look for problems including spacing, crowding, crooked or misaligned teeth which are all called malocclusions.
Malocclusions (bad bites) are described under standardised groupings which have become accepted world-wide. These groupings allow universal classification of problems and enable dental professionals to communicate using the same terms.
We are proud to be an NHS provider for orthodontic care in our local areas, and work closely with the relevant authorities to offer access for those needing treatment and advice free at the point of service.
While orthodontic treatment can improve smiles at any age, there may be an optimal time for individual patients to begin treatment in order to achieve maximum improvement in a minimum amount of time.
Regardless of your age, orthodontic treatment will provide you with straight teeth and a distinguished smile. Whilst treatment results in improved self-confidence and satisfaction, the goals of orthodontics are not just the cosmetic enhancement of your smile – there are always significant improvements in the health of your teeth and gums.
