Cotswold Orthodontics Welcome to Cotswold orthodontics. We are a specialist orthodontic practice providing treatment carried out to the very highest standard in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
Our orthodontists are Kate Mathews, Cathy Golden, Alison Ferris and James Dickson. These orthodontists have all undergone specialist training and have a wealth of experience. They are all registered with the General Dental Council and are all on the specialist register.
We are able to provide a very comprehensive range of treatment including removable and fixed braces. Fixed braces may be metal or clear . We can also provide Invisalign treatment which is the use of clear removable aligners. Lingual orthodontics is also an option and in these cases the appliances are placed on the side of the tooth adjacent to the tongue and not infront of the tooth as is normally the case.
What is Orthodontics Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of dental and dentofacial problems. Orthodontic treatment is carried out to correct poorly aligned teeth, an incorrect bite or a mixture of the two. The correction of these problems involves tooth movement which is effected using braces. The various appliances used include removable, functional and fixed appliances. Severe cases are treated by a combination of orthodontic treatment and corrective jaw surgery.
The benefits of an attractive smile should not be undervalued. The self esteem of a child or an adult often improves as treatment progresses. The result is that orthodontic treatment can benefit both social and career success, in addition to improving one´s general attitude to the demanding world in which we live.
