We pride ourselves on offering a family-friendly environment at our practices, which also means we have the facilities to treat patients of all ages. Come and see us to find out how we can treat your family.
The health of your child’s teeth is very important for their overall well-being, both when they’re young and in adulthood. That is why it is recommended that every child has an orthodontic assessment between the ages of 7 and 11. This is when an orthodontist is able to identify any issues that may arise as your child’s teeth and smile develop. At Specialist Orthodontic Group we offer fixed braces and retainers for children. Come and see us so we can assess your child’s teeth and talk you through possible treatment options they may need in the future.
Teens and adults
The teenage years are synonymous with braces but developments in orthodontic technology means braces no longer need to be bulky and uncomfortable. Systems like Invisalign Teen use aligners which are virtually invisible so your teenager doesn’t need to feel self-conscious about their treatment. What’s more, Invisalign aligners can be taken out so your teenager can continue to do everything they love, like playing sport or musical instruments.
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teenagers though. We’re seeing a growing number of adults in our practice who are taking advantage of the benefits gained from orthodontics. Many are being treated for orthodontic problems that weren’t corrected when they were children. We expect the number of adult patients to continue to increase which is why we’ve designed our clinic with comfortable adult treatment areas.
The thought of having braces or other orthodontic appliances fitted can be daunting which is why we sit down with all of our patients at the start of their treatment journey to ensure they understand the process and are comfortable with the treatment they are about to receive. We’re happy to answer any of your questions and our team of orthodontists, dental nurses and orthodontic therapists will be with you every step of the way.
It’s important to remember that orthodontic technology has continued to develop over the years. Porcelain technology has produced small tooth-coloured brackets that are barely noticeable, specially alloyed wires are gentler and more comfortable and treatment time is less making your overall experience much more enjoyable.
