Orthodontics is the specialist area of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of the teeth, jaws and face. The Orthodontic Service is Consultant led and provides highly specialised treatment for more complex cases.

We care for patients who have:

  • Jaw and facial deformity
  • Unerupted and poorly positioned teeth
  • Congenitally missing teeth
  • Cleft lip and palate

We also provide a multidisciplinary service with our colleagues in Maxillo-Facial Surgery to treat patients who require a combination of jaw or oral surgery as well as orthodontics.
