The ideal time for orthodontic treatment is in the teenage years. Once all the adult teeth have erupted (usually by the age of 12), patients can commence treatment with braces. Our orthodontists utilise the facial growth that is still occurring in the teenage years to achieve beautiful smiles and functional bites.
Another reason why this is a good age to commence orthodontic treatment that it is likely that your child will have friends and classmates also undergoing treatment at the same time. This makes the experience much more pleasant as they go through it together.
We use market-leading braces which are comfortable due to their small size and lower profile, without compromising its effectiveness. We have silver and clear options.
Treatment usually takes approximately 18-24 months. However, where suitable, we will recommend using Suresmile technology which will significantly reduce your treatment time.
