Orthodontics

A16

Welcome

Orthodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry concerned with the development and management of irregularities of the teeth, jaws and face (malocclusion). Malocclusion is not a disease but a marked variation in the normal position of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment can improve the function and appearance of the mouth and face. Orthodontic appliances are used to straighten the teeth.

The aim of orthodontic care is to produce a healthy, functional bite creating greater resistance to dental disease and improving facial appearance. This contributes to the mental as well as the physical wellbeing of the individual.
