Smile ... we can help you look your best and feel good about yourself
A nice smile and good teeth are often the first thing we notice about a person. If you are unhappy or worried about the way your teeth look, the specialist care given at Christchurch Orthodontics can help you to look your best and feel good about yourself.
So what is orthodontics? Orthodontics is a specialised area of dentistry that straightens or moves teeth to improve their appearance and how they work. It can also help the way that the upper and lower teeth bite together so that the biting pressure is spread more evenly over the teeth. Problems in biting pressure can sometimes cause chipped, worn, or loose teeth and can place the chewing muscles and joints under stress.
Using fixed, removable or invisible braces, depending on the treatment required, constant and gentle pressure is put on the teeth or the jaws to move them into a more favourable position. This will help you to eat more comfortably, clean your teeth more easily and as a result help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
We are Specialist Orthodontists. That means that we are fully qualified dentists who have spent several years undergoing further full time specialist training in orthodontics leading to a post graduate qualification in orthodontics. This entitles us to be registered on the Specialist List of the General Dental Council.
