What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of the teeth and the jaw. Here, at Northlight Dental we also deal with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.

Crooked or overcrowded teeth can cause a variety of problems, including tooth decay, gum disease and damage to jaw joints. An attractive smile and improved self-image is just one of the benefits your orthodontist is Milton Keynes can achieve.

Our orthodontist in Milton Keynes often gets asked, “Why do I need braces?” or, “What are the benefits that make the cost and time worthwhile?” There are so many benefits that patients derive from orthodontic treatment, as documented in scientific studies and from personal experiences.
