Orthodontics, is the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth of the teeth, jaws and face

It is about making the best of your teeth.
It's about improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws.
When you can bite together correctly, you eat more comfortably and can care for your teeth and gums more easily.
Your self esteem will benefit immensely!

Some of the most common reasons for a referral to an Orthodontist are:

  • Protruding upper front teeth - one of the most common dental problems

  • Crowding – a narrow jaw may mean there is not enough room for your teeth, resulting in crowding

  • Gaps between teeth.

  • Asymmetry – particularly when the centre lines of the upper and lower front teeth do not match, perhaps because the teeth have drifted or the position of the jaw has shifted.

  • A deep bite – when your upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much

  • A reverse bite – when your upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth

  • An open bite – when your front teeth remain apart when your back teeth meet; the tongue is often still visible between the upper and lower front teeth.

  • Impacted teeth - in some patients, secondary teeth come through in the wrong position or do not erupt at all. Orthodontic treatment can help bring these teeth into the correct position.

A variety of treatment options will be provided following a detailed discussion of your concerns and a clinical examination
