Modern orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth. Some people also have a severe problem with the size or alignment of their facial jaw bones. This can result in unbalanced facial proportions, speech and breathing problems, uneven/increased tooth wear, jaw joint problems, sleep apnoea, etc. Helping these people requires combining our best orthodontic treatment with appropriate surgical care. So when we examine and assess you, we are looking at more than just your teeth alone. In many cases, we work as part of a multi-specialist team which may also include your dentist, and deliver superior treatment results.
