For straighter smiles, and better dental health
Orthodontic Dentistry describes a particular type of dentistry that aims to straighten, move and improve the position and appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth done by a Specialist Orthodontist.
To do this, Orthodontic Specialists Dentist can use a variety of different braces such as traditional braces, self ligating braces, removable braces, clear braces and invisible braces.
Do I need braces?
Crooked or misaligned teeth are a common issue. A recent study in England found that around a third of 12 year olds would benefit from some type of brace treatment done by a specialist dentist.
I you feel that the position of your teeth could be improved, you are looking for a straighter smile and a boost in confidence, you may benefit from the variety of brace options that we offer.
Because crooked teeth can cause you discomfort, affect your ability to keep your teeth clean and even affect the shape of your face, finally having straight teeth will not only give you a beautiful smile, but it will also make it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy.

How will the Specialist Dentist treat me?
After a full examination, the Specialist Orthodontist will give you a number of options and see which one suits your needs best.
Our treatments include:
- Fixed braces – Traditional bracket and wire systems that are cemented on your teeth that will remain there during the whole duration of the treatment. Treatment with these type of braces is usually shorter as the force applied on the teeth is more effective.
- Clear Fixed braces – They are a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces. They are usually made of white ceramic and blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.
- Removable braces – Custom-made devices, usually made of wires and acrylic. These type of braces are not fixed to your teeth so you can take them off to eat and clean them. They are usually used for short periods of time when your smile needs only slight adjustments or as a pre treatment before fixed brace treatment
- Functional Braces – A set of removable braces that are joined together or designed to work together. They are fitted to your upper and lower teeth
- Clear/invisible removable braces also called aligners: –These are removable aligners made of a hard transparent type of plastic and are hardly noticeable on the teeth. They work by gradually moving the teeth into their right position without the need for wires or tightening.
