What is orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, which improves the appearance of the teeth and how they work.
Why choose orthodontic treatment?
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 in which their teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean.
Some people may have upper front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These 'prominent' teeth are more likely to be damaged, but orthodontic treatment can move them back into line. Or the way the upper and lower jaws meet can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite. Orthodontic treatment may be able to correct both of these problems.
What age group can the orthodontist treat?
The orthodontist is able to treat under 18’s and over 18’s. Orthodontic treatment is available on a private basis only.
