More 95% of the dental services provided in this clinic are dentofacial orthopaedic or orthodontic treatment. The aims of this treatment are to produce dentitions that are aesthetically pleasant, functionally effective and to improve facial appearance. In some young children, interceptive treatment can be carried out to prevent or minimize the development of severe malocclusion in their permanent dentitions in later years. Treatment would involve the use of removable orthodontic appliances, functional appliances, fixed metal or porcelain orthodontic appliances, invisalign appliances, or combinations of the above. In certain cases, orthognathic surgery (surgical correction of jaws) may be required.
