If you or your child have crooked teeth or have a smile that you do not like you need to see an orthodontist.
Based on the information gathered from diagnostic tools that include a medical and dental health history, a clinical exam and special X-rays and photographs, the orthodontist can decide in consultation with you whether orthodontics is recommended and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
An orthodontic treatment programme will be designed for your specific needs.
