Our Orthodontists are dentists that have undergone special training after they have graduated in dentistry. The specialty primarily deals with the diagnosis, preparation and correction of malposition teeth and jaws.
Orthodontics isn’t just about the aesthetics of a healthy smile, there is a strong connection between irregular dentition, caries and periodontal disease. Irregular placed teeth can be more difficult to clean, fillings are difficult to place and as is maintaining clean gaps between teeth to help prevent gum disease. Also irregular placed teeth can cause stress on the jawbone, which can lead to chewing pain and excessive tooth wear.
Patients have several choices for Orthodontic treatment.
Visible Fixed External Braces
These are the traditional metal braces which are still widely used. With advances in orthodontic technologies and materials the braces have become much smaller and far more comfortable to wear.
