Orthodontics aims to create an attractive smile and improve or maintain dental health. This is achieved with 'appliances' (braces) which correct the position of the teeth and the fit of the bite.
In the growing child, orthodontists also aim to modify growth to improve the bite and facial appearance.
Treatment varies enormously. This can take as little as four months or as long as two years but, for most patients, this takes 8 to 18 months with visits every five to eight weeks. After this, the teeth usually need to be held in their new positions with retainers.

May I take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Robert for making my teeth look beautiful and straight for my wedding. Robert was friendly and explained everything to me really well. I'm delighted with the results. I received a 1st class attention from when I contacted your orthodontist and through all the treatment. A big thank you also to all the staff you were always pleasant, friendly, welcoming and made me feel so relaxed. Claire Padmore
Lucy did an amazing job on my teeth as a teenager and then later, despite my numerous attempts to ruin them, she has managed to bring them back to their former glory. James
"What a remarkable job you have done, I am happier than ever and smiling permanently due to your practice" Mr Pitters
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Lucy for seeing me at such short notice yesterday to fix my retainer. She is always so lovely (as are all the staff) and I really enjoy all my visits there - I am really pleased with the improvement in my smile and am only sad that I generally now no longer need to visit regularly!!
