Early orthodontic treatment in Hertfordshire | Bishops Stortford Orthodontics

Early orthodontic treatment

The optimum time for your child’s first orthodontic consultation is around the age of 7-years-old. 

Why is early treatment important?

Establishing your child’s oral hygiene routine is an essential part of their development, not to mention their overall well-being. Poor oral hygiene can contribute to a number of other health problems, not to mention self-esteem issues as they grow older. 

Booking your child in for an orthodontic consultation should be high on your list when they reach the age of 7-years-old. This is because, at this age, our orthodontists can assess your child’s teeth and jaws and identify any orthodontic problems they could be at risk of. Treatment may not necessarily be required immediately, but the consultation will mean you can plan for and be prepared for any treatment in the years to come.

Orthodontic treatment for teenagers

Teenagers and braces go hand-in-hand, but fortunately the days of wearing ‘train tracks’ or being called ‘metal mouth’ are a thing of the past. There are a number of orthodontic treatment options suitable for teenagers these days which are both discreet and comfortable to wear, giving your young adult a more enjoyable orthodontic experience. At Bishops Stortford Orthodontics, we often use Invisalign Teen to correct our young adult patients’ teeth. This is the teenager’s version of Invisalign which, in addition to being a discreet treatment option (the aligners are virtually invisible), fits in well with a teenager’s lifestyle. The aligners can be removed for playing a sport or a musical instrument, or for important occasions such as prom photos!

It was literally a dream come true to look in the mirror and see straight teeth for the first time in my life - it was an emotional time for me! I couldn't have asked for more and I'm extremely grateful for their practice and hard work.
