What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is all about straightening or correcting the position and alignment of your teeth. When they are crooked, crowded or your bite is out of shape, then it can cause oral health problems and damage your confidence and self-esteem.

An orthodontist is a dental specialist who takes further training in this specialism to gain the expertise to move your teeth using orthodontic appliances – braces and retainers.

Children's orthodontics

Giving your child a winning smile for the rest of their life is a wonderful way to help them achieve a positive body image. As well as the obvious aesthetic benefits, children’s orthodontic treatments correct a great many alignment and bites issues that can hamper oral health, confidence and self-esteem.

Children’s braces are very effective once their adult teeth are through, and today’s teenagers are very accepting – braces are often a fashion accessory. Beautiful teeth alignment provided by our expert pediatric orthodontist is an investment in your child’s future. Around a third of all children can benefit from orthodontics treatment.

  • Our specialist orthodontist Dr Goldie Songra has extensive experience providing unique treatment plans for children.
  • Don’t wait for problems to develop, timely intervention can often mean a more efficient, shorter treatment plan.
  • Choose from a variety of Children’s braces, traditional, ceramic, or the invisible, removable Invisalign Teen
  • The colour options available with fixed braces mean your child can have fun with it too.

Interceptive orthodontics

By monitoring the development of your child’s teeth before their adult teeth have finished coming through, our orthodontist can create a preventative orthodontics treatment plan to address any crowding and bite problems. A minority of children can benefit from treatment starting as young as seven years old, to avoid dental issues when they are older.


It’s worth having an early consultation for your child if you have any concerns at all about their teeth. Acting early can prevent the need for more complex orthodontic treatment as a teenager. Through X-rays, our orthodontist will also be able to tell if there are issues that might affect how their adult teeth come through.

  • Treatment for a variety of issues that can go on to cause damage: crowding, protruding teeth, underbite, crossbite.
  • Interceptive orthodontics can identify missing teeth, extra teeth, impacted teeth.
  • Extractions, temporary use of orthodontic appliances or space management may avert problems later.
  • Ask us about an appointment to see if your child will benefit from an early intervention.
