Orthodontic Assessment

Dr Steven England has received extensive training in orthodontics attending countless post graduate courses over the past 27 years. He will be able to help determine whether you can benefit from orthodontic treatment.

A full diagnostic assessment will be undertaken to evaluate your dental condition. This will include a full breakdown of your medical and dental history and a clinical exam. A plaster study model will be made of your teeth, and comprehensive x-rays and photographs will be taken. We will be able to outline your orthodontic option and help you choose a treatment plan that’s suitable to you.

You may be a candidate for orthodontics if you have the following:

Dental crowding is where you have too many teeth for the available space in your jaw.

Overbite also referred to as Buck Teeth. This is where the front teeth lie too far forward and protrude over the lower teeth.
Underbite may present a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth stick out further than the upper teeth.

Crossbite when the upper teeth do not align when biting down over the lower teeth.

Openbite this is where there is a space between the biting surfaces of the front, or side teeth when biting normally together.

Midline asymmetry where the midline of your upper teeth doesn’t line up with the middle of your lower teeth.

Spacing when you have gaps in between your teeth. These can be small gaps or result from missing teeth. These gaps may complicate the fit of your mouth and leads to jaw asymmetry issues, including a closed, deep or collapsed bite.

Deepbite is where only the top teeth can be seen when you bite together normally.
