­Orthodontics for children
Gentle approaches to the perfect smile

Orthodontic treatments correct misaligned teeth and malpositioned jaws. It is not just a case of straightening teeth for the sake of appearance, it’s also about preserving or restoring aspects of the oral cavity that are important to good dental health.

Why is it sensible and important to have orthodontic treatment?

Nice, healthy teeth are not just important to aesthetics, they also improve our self-esteem and allow us to shine.

Straight teeth are easier to clean than misaligned teeth. Having straight teeth reduces the likelihood of caries and allows us to maintain our teeth for longer.

When patients’ jaws achieve the proper occlusion and are aligned in the jawbone, the jaw is subject to the correct weight and the risk of overloading and loosening is reduced.

In most cases, treatment will improve your ability to breathe through your nose or prevent you breathing through your mouth. There are fewer cases of infection in the upper respiratory tract and fewer cases of snoring, too.

Correcting a malocclusion often relieves strain on the mandibular joint or corrects its posture.

Which dental correction treatments do we offer?

Dental correction treatments

Children and adult patients can access orthodontics treatments at our practice.

We will create a treatment plan for each patient which is specific to their needs and combines the necessary treatment steps with their wishes and what can feasibly be achieved. We consider this to be a very important step and we put a lot of time and energy into perfecting this.

We treat patients using

  • Removable braces
  • Fixed brackets, including highly aesthetic ones made from ceramic
  • Invisalign – retainers

Removable braces

Removable braces

Removable braces are often used when starting orthodontic treatment in children who still have their milk teeth. These braces perform a variety of tasks and help to prepare the jaw for fixed braces (brackets) further down the line. We can make space in the oral cavity and correct conditions caused by a malpositioned jaw, such as an underbite, by expanding the jaw.

Fixed brackets

Fixed brackets for children

A fixed brace, also known as a as a multiband or brackets, is used once all your permanent teeth have come through. These help to rotate, tilt and move teeth to another position within the mouth. Patients may also undergo further treatments to correct malpositioned jaws.

As it is not possible to remove these braces, treatment cannot be interrupted and teeth are aligned without the patient needing to do anything.

You must make sure to look after your teeth when you have fixed braces to prevent the development of caries and gingivitis. Our trained practice staff will support patients of all ages in this by providing them with a particularly intensive and regular course of prophylaxis treatment.

We offer two types of fixed braces:

  • Miniature brackets made from steel
  • Miniature, almost invisible brackets made from ceramic

Invisalign: the invisible brace

Transparent braces

Invisalign provides a whole host of treatment options, especially for teenagers. The great advantage of Invisalign is that this treatment is a far more aesthetic and flexible approach to achieving a nice and confident smile for teenagers. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign’s retainers are comfortable. They can be taken out when needed and are virtually invisible. As such, teenagers can continue to pursue the activities they enjoy. Without any of the limitations, irritations or embarrassing situations that we typically associate with having metal braces and wires in your mouth.

Teenagers can take our their Invisalign retainers, and clean and floss their teeth as they normally would. Thereby improving their overall dental health.

What options are available for teenagers?

There are several Invisalign treatments available to teenagers, depending on how much their teeth have already developed.

In most cases, teenagers will undergo the same Invisalign treatment as that used in adults. However, Invisalign Teen – a treatment option specially designed for teenagers – is suitable for younger teenagers who are still waiting for all of their adult teeth to come through. Our orthodontist can provide you with advice on the best treatment for you.

Why Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen was developed in consultation with teenagers, parents, and leading orthodontists who understand the active lives that teenagers lead as well as their unique needs.

Invisalign Teen retainers are manufactured using the same Invisalign technology as that used in their other products, and ensure that the teeth move gradually to the desired position – without the need for any metal braces or wires.
