It can be difficult to get a child’s orthodontic treatment covered by the NHS. If your child is in need of orthodontic treatment then we offer braces specifically for children.
Traditional fixed metal braces use metal brackets combined with metal wires and silver elastics. Although these are not invisible, traditional braces are still quite widely used due to their versatility and effectiveness. The use of brackets enables the dentist to precisely reposition the teeth in ways that aren't always possible with more modern systems, providing you with the best possible results.
Fixed metal braces can treat most orthodontic problems, including issues with occlusion or the way the teeth bite together. They can be used to close gaps between teeth, to correct teeth that are rotated or protrusive, or teeth which are crooked due to overcrowding.
How your teeth look can affect your self confidence and making the decision to straighten your teeth can be exciting and a little daunting. You may be excited about having a new, straight smile, but concerned about how you will look while your teeth are changing. Unlike traditional metal braces, our clear brace system uses ceramic brackets which are discreet and blend with your natural teeth.
Tooth coloured brackets are safely bonded to your teeth and a system of wires will gently guide your teeth back into alignment. Ceramic braces can treat exactly the same type of orthodontic problems as traditional fixed braces. They are excellent for correcting teeth that are overcrowded, unwanted spaces or teeth that are rotated or protruding.
The main benefit of choosing ceramic braces is their discreet appearance. They are much more cosmetically appealing than traditional fixed metal braces and are still able to deliver the same results.
