An early consultation with our team of orthodontic specialists will help your child to enjoy better oral health from an early age. This appointment doesn’t necessarily mean your child needs to start treatment right away, or that your child needs treatment at all – it’s a chance to help them feel comfortable at the dentist and assess what treatment they may need to ensure a perfect smile in adulthood. As a parent, an early orthodontic consultation enables you to take a proactive approach to the planning of any treatment, potentially lessening the impact of orthodental treatment (and expense) later in life.
According to many studies, untreated malocclusions can lead to a variety of problems as your child develops:
Ultimately, early orthodontic treatment does more than make a pretty smile, it creates a healthier attitude to oral health and a healthy sense of wellbeing from a young age.
Removable appliances are commonly used to treat children. These are used to undertake simple tooth movements in younger patients who may still have baby teeth present.
The appliance has delicate wires and springs that move teeth using gentle pressure. They can be removed when playing sports, practicing musical instruments and for cleaning teeth, so they don’t interfere with your child’s normal routine.
Functional appliances are also common among our younger patients. Also known as growth modification applicants, these are usually removable and can be used to guide the growth and development of jaws in children. They are particularly beneficial if your child has a discrepancy in the size of their upper and lower jaws. Functional appliances can come as a pair, comprising of an upper and a lower brace.
To make your journey to a superior smile as stress free as possible, we offer a range of 0% APR finance and instalment plans which allow you to spread the cost of your treatment in a manageable way and interest-free for 12 Months.
Finance can typically be arranged within 24 hours. If you opt to pay in instalments, 50% of the treatment cost must be paid upfront with the balance to be paid over the agreed timeframe.
