Orthodontics is part of the Head and Neck Business unit, which includes oral and maxillofacial surgery, ENT, audiology and ophthalmology. Our orthodontic department provides high quality orthodontic care for patients in Hampshire, with outpatient clinics at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital. A wide range of orthodontic care is provided, including the treatment of complex malocclusions, multidisciplinary orthodontics, orthognathic surgery and hypodontia.

Our department also regularly participates in the established regional Orthodontic Managed Clinical Network (MCN) in Hampshire in order to keep abreast of regional and national changes in orthodontic care. Further, our orthodontists actively participate in regular regional audit meetings which provide excellent opportunities for peer review, case presentation as well as personal and group auditing to ensure best practice.

At Basingstoke hospital, there is also a well-staffed, onsite orthodontic laboratory with digital model scanning. The unit operates close links with The Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford and Southampton General Hospital for multidisciplinary cases and is a spoke unit for the regional cleft service in Salisbury.

Digital radiography is available at both sites to provide up to date x-rays to document each patient’s progress and inform their treatment.

Within the orthodontic department, we aim to offer a consultant led, comprehensive orthodontic service for the surrounding local area.

The range of conditions treated within the department, include:

  • severe malocclusions
  • interceptive orthodontics
  • impacted teeth
  • hypodontia

  • craniofacial anomalies

A variety of appliances and treatment modalities are utilised including:

Referrals are triaged to Hampshire Hospitals by the Central Referral Centre (CRC), as requiring complex intervention, based on the national Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN). Such cases often require input from allied disciplines such as oral and maxillofacial surgery. The orthodontic team works closely with this and other departments to deliver multidisciplinary care.
