The differences between a general dental practice and a dedicated orthodontic practice
General dental practices provide lots of different dental treatments, check-ups, fillings, hygienist appointments and teeth whitening etc. Whereas dedicated orthodontic practices usually only provide orthodontic treatment. Some dental practices will offer treatments such as orthodontics but a general dentist will usually have undergone less formal training and may have less experience than a dentist with sole focus in orthodontics.
Our team consists of: Ben Buffham, a specialist orthodontist; Paula Buffham, and Vicky Rowan, both experienced dentists with sole focus in the field of orthodontics and many years of orthodontic practice experience.
Because we’re only providing orthodontic treatment, we see a range of patients, including complex and challenging cases. This experience means we’re well placed to answer your questions and advise on the best course of treatment.
We’re able to offer a variety of different braces types, offering our patients the best results and aesthetics. These include clear fixed braces, hidden lingual braces and Invisalign removable aligners. We tailor your treatment to suit your needs and budget. During your consultation, we’ll discuss all of the options available to you.
The advantages of having treatment at an orthodontic practice:
- Dedicated team
- After care
