What is orthodontics

Orthodontics is the specialist area of dentistry focussing on straightening teeth.

Orthodontic treatment corrects alignment for crowded and bunched teeth, gaps, protruding teeth and misaligned bite patterns, using a variety of braces and orthodontic appliances.

In younger children, it is possible to detect these problems and prevent them from developing with early interventions.

Orthodontic intervention helps people of all ages benefit from straighter teeth, providing real functional improvements and, of course, the increased confidence from a winning smile.

Orthodontic treatments available at Arnica
