Orthodontics for children
There’s been a big rise in the number of children and young people getting orthodontic treatment and so braces have become a normal part of life; in fact, they are almost a rite of passage at secondary school now — so it’s likely your child will be more than happy to get theirs if they do need them.
They can have fun swapping the colours on their brace every time it’s adjusted or, if they want something a bit more discreet, we offer a range of invisible systems.
The 2003 Children’s Dental Health Survey found a third of children can benefit from orthodontic treatment, yet many parents wait for their kids to qualify for NHS braces and miss their chance for less invasive treatment.
It’s best if we assess your child from the time their permanent teeth start coming through because, when teeth and jaws don’t fit together properly, it’s often much easier to fix early on in life.
