What to look for in an orthodontist

There are different ways to practice orthodontics, and orthodontists may pursue a variety of different goals.
Though it may be possible to achieve an attractive smile through tooth alignment alone, a patient’s new smile will not last long if their bite is not corrected at the same time. Problems such as crooked teeth, gum issues (periodontitis), jaw joint degeneration (TMD) and tooth wear will (re)occur if your bite is not corrected.

I focus on giving my patients a healthy bite AND an attractive smile. It is therefore my highest priority to ensure that your teeth are well-positioned in healthy bone and in correct relation to your jaw joints by the end of your treatment. It is only if the chewing system functions properly that  your smile will give you pleasure for a long time to come.
The “About your treatment” section of this website sees me explain my key areas of focus in this respect, as well as how we can set about achieving our twin goals: a beautiful smile and an optimum bite.
