Our English-Speaking Orthodontist Service in Barcelona

Our English-speaking orthodontist focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of inappropriate bites and misaligned teeth. Children from the age of 7 should be systematically examined for any deviation from their growth and development.

Sometimes even younger children are treated for important developmental abnormalities. Both adults and children can be treated throughout life, and many custom-made appliances now offer very discrete and efficient solutions to wearing braces.

The orthodontic treatment often coincides with maxillofacial and cosmetic dental treatments. Some children may be referred to the speech therapist for additional support

What is orthodontics?

How do I know when I need to see an orthodontist?

The top reason for seeing an orthodontist is the same for adults and kids - to treat malocclusion, or a “bad bite.”

Mouth breathing, clenching or grinding your teeth, and the inability to comfortably close your lips may be signs that orthodontic treatment is needed.

Your smile is one of your most important features and the first asset you present to the world, so you want to make sure it is in the best hands with a fully trained orthodontics specialist. If you’re self-conscious about the state of your teeth, then an orthodontic treatment plan can help restore confidence to your smile and help you live a happier, healthier life.

What orthodontic treatment options are available?

There are a lot of treatment options these days, from retainers to clear aligners to invisible, metal, ceramic and micro braces. The kind of orthodontic treatment you’ll have depends on your treatment needs and what your orthodontist recommends. Below are some of the most common orthodontic treatment options:

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about orthodontics

Is an orthodontist different than a dentist?

Orthodontists and dentists both help patients improve their oral health, but in different ways. Dentistry is a broad medical specialty that deals with the teeth, gum, nerves, and jaw, while orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on correcting bites, occlusion, and the straightness of teeth.

How long do I have to wear braces?

On average, it takes about 24 months to complete an orthodontic treatment. Some patients require less than 12 months, but there are also patients requiring up to 3 years of treatment before their teeth reach the desired position. Orthodontics is not a one-size-fits-all solution and each patient's mouth is unique.

Do braces fix your teeth permanently?

For most people, braces are the safest and most effective way to permanently straighten their teeth. If your teeth are only slightly crooked or just a bit crowded, an orthodontist-prescribed retainer may be enough to get them straight. You shouldn't attempt to straighten your teeth by yourself.
