Orthodontics is a balance between art and science. The art of creating a beautiful smile taking into consideration the patient’s face, their profile, bone structure and muscular function, is perfectly balanced with the latest scientific technology available.
Through the combination of these two vital aspects, we can transform your smile to boost your confidence and self-esteem resulting in healthy teeth, an efficient bite and a fantastic smile you can be proud of, no matter what your age!
What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?
Both orthodontists and dentists have attained a degree in dentistry. The difference between these two dental professions, is that an orthodontist has gone on to study orthodontics at a higher postgraduate level. This usually requires another two-to-three years of study and looks further at correct teeth and jaw alignment as well as overall facial profile.
Who can benefit from orthodontics?
Anyone with tooth or jaw alignment issues can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Some of the most common orthodontic problems we treat include:
When teeth fight for space in your mouth and end up overlapping
When there is too much space in your mouth and big gaps appear between your teeth
When your front teeth stick out past your bottom teeth, causing a gap to appear
When your bottom teeth sit in front of your top teeth
If you suffer from any of these problems you could certainly benefit from orthodontic treatment. You don’t need a referral to see an orthodontist, so book a free consultation with us today and we can talk through your treatment options.
