Following government policy sent to all dental practices in Scotland, we regret that we are unable to see or treat any patients for the foreseeable future. However, we are here if you need us for anything: please check the ‘Help & Advice’ section of this website or get in touch via e-mail or phone.
For those wearing braces, you’ll be pleased to hear that they will continue to work safely for weeks without our intervention - as long as they are kept CLEAN and not damaged. Retainers must continue to be worn as prescribed by your orthodontist.
If you run out of aligners or elastics, stick with your last set and we will get things back on track when life returns to normal. Until then, we hope that our patients, their friends and families all stay healthy during these worrying times.
Stay safe everyone.
Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth of the teeth, jaws and face, is in high demand. In excess of 200,000 children and teenagers in England and Wales have treatment within the NHS every year, with growing numbers of adults and young people seeking treatment on a private basis. Why? Orthodontic treatment is about making the best of your teeth; it’s about improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once you can bite together correctly, you can eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily. And your smile will benefit immensely!
Most courses of orthodontic treatment begin with a referral from a general dentist to a specialist. Depending on what treatment is needed, most patients are seen by a specialist in a local practice or by a consultant in hospital. Some patients are treated by dentists with extra training and experience to treat the milder cases.
