Childrens orthodontist in Cheltenham

Having an orthodontist who understands the importance of correct teeth alignment for children, and how it affects their facial development and overall health is really important.

  • Children and teenagers may need braces or aligners for any number of reasons, including crooked, overlapping or overcrowded teeth or a ‘bad bite.’
  • Sometimes tooth and jaw problems can be caused by tooth decay, losing baby teeth early, accidents, or habits like thumb sucking.

Often, your dentist will be the first to notice problems during a routine check-up and will recommend that you see an orthodontist who will determine the best orthodontic option for your child or teenager.

Early evaluation for your child

Early intervention, often referred to as interceptive orthodontic treatment, is performed on growing children to deal with issues such as misaligned jaws, severely overcrowded or protruding teeth as early as possible. Recommended between the ages of 7 and 9, treatment typically lasts up to 12 months and can make later treatment less complicated.

Early evaluation doesn’t mean a child will get braces right away. It just means the orthodontist will be able to determine which problems exist, monitor changes and assess the best time for treatment.

If you think your child would benefit from an early orthodontic assessment, please contact our friendly team to book an appointment.

Teenage Orthodontics

At Illume Dentistry we offer a full range of teeth straightening treatments that can satisfy all requirements of a young adult, from clear aligners to ceramic braces to behind-the-teeth lingual braces.

We normally use ceramic braces as they’re subtle and effective. Treatment is frequently started around 11-13 years and we plan treatment fully aware of the significant social and schooling needs during these important teenage years.

If you are interested in having your child’s teeth assessed for orthodontic treatment, schedule a private consultation today and avoid the lengthy waiting list for your child to qualify for NHS braces.
