Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.

Many people have crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve their appearance and the way the teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean.

Before an orthodontic treatment starts, it is important to have a full examination.  This will usually involve looking at your teeth, taking x-rays and making plaster models of your teeth.

Our dentist will then discuss what treatment is possible. Once the treatment plan presented is accepted by the patient , the treatment can start as soon as you have enough permanent teeth.
