Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating dental irregularities. These include crooked, crowded and protruding teeth and poor jaw alignment.
As orthodontists, we use a variety of dental braces to help patients of all ages achieve a beautiful, natural smile as well as a healthy, functional bite. Teeth straightening and relieving overcrowding also provides greater resistance to dental disease. The end result is better physical well being and enhanced confidence.
Orthodontic treatment may be provided independently or in partnership with your general dentist. For example we might correct the position of your teeth in preparation for dental restoration work, such as implants, crowns or bridges.
Nowadays, with the improved appearance of modern cosmetic braces, an increasing number of adults are choosing orthodontic treatment. Options include almost invisible removable aligners, crystal clear fixed braces and completely invisible braces that are fixed behind your teeth.
Another exciting innovation is the Damon system. This makes it possible to straighten teeth more quickly and comfortably, usually without the need for tooth removal, even when there's a severe crowding problem.
