We offer early intervention treatments for children starting at the age of 6 in the form of Invisalign first treatment, maxillary expansion and early extraction of baby teeth to facilitate the eruption of adult teeth.
At this stage, the bones in the jaw are still pliable and can be manipulated to promote positive growth and proper teeth alignment. Additionally, we can widen the jaw during growth to create a broader smile and avoid the need for tooth extractions.
Our practice recognises that every child is unique, so our experienced clinicians use a comprehensive approach to assess oral and facial parameters, including tooth position, skeletal profile, arch width, tongue position, and breathing habits. Based on this evaluation, we create a customised treatment plan that may involve Invisalign Clear Aligners and expanders if necessary.
Depending on the complexity of the case, treatment can be carried out in one or two phases. Our goal is to prioritize early orthodontic intervention to promote healthy development and enhance our patients’ overall well-being.
During a consultation with one of our expert clinicians, we will thoroughly discuss our findings from the clinical and radiographic assessment and present treatment options. This ensures that parents can make informed decisions about their child’s orthodontic treatment.
In the UK it is common to use a single period of treatment with braces to fix just about any orthodontic problem (age 12-18). For some people, this results in a beautiful, healthy smile, but it isn’t right for all patients. In many cases, the problems we need to correct are structural issues with the underlying bones and ligaments supporting the teeth, and correcting these problems is often difficult with braces alone. That’s why orthodontists have developed Two-Phase Treatment.
Two-Phase Treatment is an orthodontic technique that involves using two separate periods of orthodontic treatment: one during childhood and one during adolescence. This approach allows us to treat underlying bone structure issues during childhood, when the bones of the mouth are still growing and malleable, then treat more surface-level alignment issues during adolescence, once the adult teeth have grown in.
For patients that have had a phase 1 treatment, they may need a phase 2 treatment in teenage years once the structural issues have been resolved.
