We welcome patients of all ages. And often recommend seeing our brace patients from the age of 8. If you think your child needs braces, we would be delighted to see your child for a specialist consultation to assess your concerns.
They may be placed under review until they are ready to start treatment. Or, early orthodontics may be started. This is sometimes required to aid and alter growth and jaw positions. (To help achieve ideal jaw positions and widths).
We usually recommend fixed braces for children. They tend to enjoy having coloured elastics. But, for the more image-conscious teen, we have tooth coloured braces and even InvisalignTeen.
