What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry concerned with the correction of malocclusions (bad bites) that is characterised by crooked teeth, poor occlusion or bite and/or disproportionate jaw growth. Orthodontic treatment improves physical appearance and self confidence, in addition to providing a healthy functional bite that is more resistant to disease and consequently improves the health and longevity of the teeth.

Orthodontists diagnose and correct malocclusions. Orthodontists fit orthodontic appliances, in particular braces, and may use other appliances like Invisalign or Plates to fix jaw and facial abnormalities. Orthodontics is a recognised specialty of the New Zealand Dental Council and Orthodontists have undergone specialist training and additional qualifications. All Orthodontists have to be members of the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists.

As a specialist orthodontist we also provide probono treatment for special cases under the Wish for a Smile Trust
