Orthodontics is the field of dentistry focused on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Malocclusion. In simple terms it is the treatment of teeth that are not in the right place. With modern technology we can eliminate unsightly or difficult to maintain spaces, correct overloading and crossing, and move teeth into their perfect position.

Orthodontics is a highly specialised area of dentistry and our clinicians have trained for many years and treated many cases successfully. Orthodontic treatment can be complex and so you should always check your clinician is an expert in the field before starting treatment.
Before any treatment commences we will provide you with a full treatment plan detailing the costs and the procedure so you are in full control of your care.
When we first meet you we will discuss your needs and the pro’s and con’s of each treatment. In order to allow us to effectively plan your case we will need to complete a comprehensive orthodontic examination. This may require xrays.
