We encourage all teenagers to see our orthodontic team. This can be the best time to go through orthodontic treatment as all of the adult teeth have erupted but facial growth is still occurring.

As the dental structure is not yet fixed the teeth are still malleable. Often this stage is when orthodontic treatment can be most simple, comfortable and non-invasive.

Teenagers make up the largest group to wear braces but, despite this, some teens feel uncomfortable wearing them. We understand that this time can be a difficult time even without orthodontic treatment. This is why we will discuss treatment options in detail so they become part of the process and feel better about receiving orthodontics.



Our treatment options for teens:

We endeavour to provide our teenage patients with options to ensure they can choose a treatment which can straighten their smile discreetly and effectively, as well as making them feel comfortable. 

  • Ceramic Braces– More cosmetically pleasing. It’s all about how they look! Because clear braces are made of a very fine, translucent porcelain they are less visible than metal braces.
  • Invisalign – Straight teeth, no braces. Invisalign treatment is made up of a series of thin, clear plastic aligners that act to gradually move your teeth into place. They are suitable for teens and adults.
  • Braces– Still the most affordable and most popular treatment option. Metal braces are a very common treatment option, especially for teenagers. Their affordability and ability to cater for various treatment situations makes them a great orthodontic treatment option.

During you initial consultation, we can talk you through the options available and discuss which treatment is best suited to your concerns, lifestyle and budget.
