Orthodontics is the dental specialty that uses braces to correct the alignment and growth of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontists are qualified dentists who undertake extra specialist training and examinations to become specialists.
Our orthodontic department provides a consultant-led service for
the treatment of patients with the most severe and complex
orthodontic problems. Many of our patients require joint
management with other specialists such as surgeons, specialist
cosmetic dentists and chest physicians.
We work particularly closely with the department of oral
and maxillo-facial surgery. Patients are referred to us by
their general dentist or other specialist orthodontists who work
outside of the hospital.
