Orthodontics

 

Orthodontics Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that involves straightening teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. Orthodontic appliances are also commonly known as braces, ‘train-tracks’, retainers, plates, expanders etc.

 

Orthodontics for children

We generally recommend that a child should see an Orthodontist at approximately 8 years old. If there are likely to be any problems, an Orthodontist can often spot the problem at this age and give advice about sorting it out early, if possible.

 

Orthodontics for adults

Braces can help improve your smile at any age, and there are many different ways to carry out treatment – removable or fixed, stainless steel or clear, short treatments or longer, more complex treatments. For some people, orthodontics can be a useful addition to a comprehensive dental treatment plan, assisting in the preparation for crowns, veneers, bridges and implants.
