Orthodontics is a specialist subject within dentistry. This area focuses on treating misaligned teeth, bite issues, and jaw problems. While some dentists can be trained in basic orthodontics a specialist must complete postgraduate study dedicated to learning every aspect of the area. This enables them to treat the most complex cases that need more advanced knowledge and expertise.

As part of her professional development, she attends national and international postgraduate courses to keep her knowledge up to date.

Invisalign is a popular treatment for adults and teens. In some cases the treatment is simple, however, for others, the procedure is much more complex. Due to variations in teeth misalignment, treatment needs to be adjusted accordingly to take all these factors into account. As part of the process we make use of our specialist iTero digital scanning technology. This eliminates the need for time-consuming impressions and moulds. Furthermore, Clincheck software allows us to tailor make the treatment to suit individual’s needs. This also allows patients to view their predicted results before treatment starts.
