Specialist Orthodontics - Your Questions Answered

What is ‘Specialist Orthodontics’?

Just like in most careers, there are several specialist areas in dentistry. These include Oral Surgery, Endodontics (root canal therapy), Prosthodontics (restorative treatments such as bridges and crowns) and Orthodontics (irregularities of the teeth and jaws). Most commonly, specialist orthodontics involves straightening teeth with fixed, removable and invisible braces.

At Specialist Orthodontics Harley Street, we provide treatment for a variety of patients and problems. Dental imperfections can be a contributing factor to low self-esteem, but our team will help you find the best treatment plan. There are several treatment options to choose from, including Lingual Braces, fixed braces, and Invisalign.

Why choose a Specialist Orthodontist?

The main difference between a dentist and a specialist is the type of training they have received. In order to specialise in orthodontics, dentists who have completed their dentistry training are then required to undergo another three years of orthodontic training. This field is also extremely competitive, making it a more difficult field to specialise in. Orthodontists are also required to complete a postgraduate qualification at Masters or Doctorate level, involving both theory and hands-on practice.

How does the process work?

At your first appointment with one of our Orthodontic Specialists, we will examine and walk you through your teeth and problems, providing various treatment options. Following this, your treatment will be carried-out by our professionals who have specialist training and in-depth experience in performing these procedures with successful results.

Our patients are extremely important to us and we place the care for our patients above all else. By providing you with excellently skilled professionals, our aim is to achieve the best possible results and your satisfaction.

Why would I need orthodontic treatment?

Having orthodontic treatment can both be necessary, and sometimes just simply desired. Most of us have dental imperfections, but for some it can cause extreme levels of discomfort and can also contribute to low self-esteem. If orthodontic treatment is something that you seek, then Specialist Orthodontics Harley Street are an excellent place to start with.

Apart from the aesthetic benefit of orthodontic treatment, the effects can also hugely enhance your physical health as well. Poorly aligned teeth and discomfort in the jawbone can then transfer pain into your neck and shoulders. This is due to the jawbone’s close proximity to the neck and shoulders. Another common problem people can face is headaches caused by the grinding of teeth, which can occur when teeth are misaligned or crooked. Specialist orthodontics treatment will target your dental problems by successfully treating them and alleviating physical pain and discomfort.

What treatments do Specialist Orthodontics Harley Street offer?

Our specialist orthodontic practice is the best solution for battling crooked teeth and we strive to lead you through our detailed and effective treatment process. Our professionals and wide variety of specialists can help correct crooked teeth, providing you with a beaming and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Some of the common issues we treat are:

  • Underbite, Overbite/Overjet, Crossbite

Though many tend to outgrow an underbite in childhood, adults must seek help and treatment. An underbite refers to the bottom teeth protruding past the top teeth when an individual bites their teeth together

  • Overcrowding

The overcrowding of teeth is a very common problem caused when there is an insufficient amount of space in your mouth. This could be due to the size of the mouth, the positioning of the back teeth or the size of the teeth. Our professionals can help provide treatment to help shift teeth and also help to remove unwanted teeth that are causing problems. When not treated, overcrowding can produce more complications such as overlapping or crooked teeth.

  • Uneven Spacing

Unevenly spaced teeth are a fairly common dental issue, and can be fixed using a variety of methods. Specialised orthodontics can help to create or alter the spaces in between a patient’s teeth, enhancing both the alignment and the harmony of the teeth.
