What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the field of dentistry concerned with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of malocclusion. In other words it is straightening of the teeth. With the use of modern technology, our South London clinicians can eliminate spaces, correct overlapping teeth, and move teeth into an improved position and so improve the bite.
When should you have Orthodontics?
Patients usually opt to have orthodontic teeth straightening procedures performed while they are still in their teenage years as many adults would prefer not to be seen wearing braces, but now with the introduction of Invisalign invisible braces, which are discreet and effective, adults are more open to corrective treatment. Orthodontics can improve your appearance, dental health and confidence and it is never too late to enjoy such benefits.
Choosing you clinician
Orthodontics is a highly specialised area of dentistry and our South London 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.
In order to help you make an informed decision as to which treatment you want, we will always take the time to talk you through your various options and make sure you understand the pro’s and con’s of each one. We will conduct a complete and thorough orthodontic examination, which may include x-rays if necessary. You are encouraged to ask any questions to put your mind at rest and help you decide on a suitable treatment. We will advise you but the decision is ultimately yours.
What is the right solution for me?
Every patient is unique, which is why we will need to assess your needs. But from traditional fixed braces to the newer removable, Invisible braces, we are proud to be able to offer patients all the modern orthodontic solutions. Together we will find the right treatment for you
