Orthodontics

3rd Apr 2018

Orthodontics is the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontic treatment involves wearing fixed or removable appliances (braces and retainers) and aims to correct the bite, the smile and the balance of the face.

Orthodontics can be of benefit to people of all ages, from intercepting potential problems as the teeth develop in children to treating adults who have never been happy with their smile.

Specialists in Orthodontics have completed an additional minimum of three years higher training and examinations after first qualifying as a general dentist.
