Removable Plastic Braces
Using removable plastic braces earlier on in your child’s life helps lay foundations for future treatment and can avoid needing to extract adult teeth later on, which would otherwise be the first major dental intervention your child receives, and therefore potentially upsetting.
To find out more about removable plastic braces, you can book a consultation with us.
Functional, or ‘bite’ correction braces, are worn on either the top or bottom set of teeth, or sometimes both, day and night. They help guide your child’s teeth and their ‘bite’ into the ideal position comfortably and effectively.
You can book a consultation for your child to learn more about functional braces.
While there are lots of different types of fixed brace available, one of the most fun and fashionable options for children is a metal brace system with brightly coloured bands. We have a rainbow of colours available and know children enjoy picking out the colours, making the process of getting a brace a lot more pleasant.
For teenagers or children who are a little more self-conscious about their brace, we have a range of discreet cosmetic fixed braces which are designed to blend in with their teeth more effectively. This is a useful option if your child is particularly worried about having a brace and wants it to be as invisible as possible.
To find out more about what sort of fixed brace could be right for your child, contact us to book an appointment.
Invisalign Plastic Braces
These clear teeth aligners are suitable for 11 to 18 year olds, as they are used to help align and straighten adult teeth. The barely visible braces are worn for 22 hours a day, and have a built-in indicator to show you how long they’re being worn to make sure they have time to move your child’s teeth effectively. For teenagers conscious of their smile but keen to make it as brilliant as possible, the discreet Invisalign Teen braces are a perfect choice.
Get in touch to find out whether your child can use Invisalign Teen to help improve their smile.
