Orthodontics at 128 Harley Street Dental Suite

Why see an orthodontic specialist?

Did you know that 100 of orthodontists are dentists but only 5% of dentists are orthodontists!

An orthodontist will first graduate from dental school as a general dentist, they will then go on to do a Masters degree in orthodontics, often registering as a specialist with the General Dental Council.

Can a dentist straighten teeth?

Yes, a general dentist can do additional training and go on extra courses to learn how to straighten teeth using standardised orthodontic systems, they may also use bonding or dental veneers to straighten crooked teeth. The general dentist must also be able to replace missing teeth, look after your dental health, change your smile with cosmetic dentistry as well as a myriad of other things, meaning they are extremely generalised and good at looking after your mouth in general.

Google Review Rating 128 Harley Street Dental Suite is rated 5 out of 5 based on 30 reviews on Google.

Why is an orthodontist different?

An orthodontist will only work on your teeth and/or jaw if your Oral health is in good condition beforehand, an orthodontist will rely on a general dentist to ensure this happens. Because an orthodontist is not focusing on these are the general areas they are able to focus exclusively on straightening crooked teeth using the widest range of treatments available.

Because an orthodontist has had the additional specialist training at Masters level they are able to use more complex techniques which may work quicker or be more suited to your individual clinical situation or desired outcome and results.

Generally speaking, an orthodontist can offer you a wide range of orthodontic options and treat a wide range of clinical situations.
