Easy Read Information

Orthodontics is about treating patients who have teeth in the wrong place. Our team work people who have serious problems with the position of their teeth.

This page gives more information about the work of this team and the treatment they can offer.

What we do

We provide specialist orthodontic advise for children and adults on the diagnosis and management of patients with a malocclusion.

We provide specialist, often multidisciplinary, treatment for patients who have a significant malocclusion and those severe dento-facial anomalies and/or severe hypodontia.

We undertake complex orthodontic treatment that may need to be combined with either restorative dental treatment and/or orthognathic surgery to replace missing teeth and/or correct their skeletal discrepancy.


Patients are referred from primary and secondary care for orthodontic assessment and would be expected to have a well maintained dentition with no active or untreated decay and with a high standard of oral hygiene
