Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the prevention and correction of crooked teeth.  

We are fortunate here at Family Dental Care East Lothian to have Dr John Hammond, Consultant Orthodontist, working part time at the practice. He will be doing regular sessions and will take care of all our orthodontic needs, removing the need to travel a long distance to see the orthodontist.
 
Treatment is normally achieved by using fixed braces (train tracks) or small removable braces and would normally take about 2 years from start to finish.  This is available for both children and adults. Please ask your dentist for details.
