Straight, well-functioning teeth have a truly positive impact on your child’s confidence and long-term dental health. It’s hard enough being a kid, especially during those awkward teenage years, without having to worry about your smile!
At Orthodontic Gallery, We have seen first hand how a beautiful smile can completely transform a child’s confidence. Which is why we believe Children’s Orthodontics is such a worthwhile investment.
Although teeth can be straightened at any age, the ideal time to have this corrective treatment is during the early teenage years, when the teeth and jaw are still developing.
We would suggest that you bring your child in for an Orthodontic assessment as early as aged 7. While it is unlikely they will start active treatment at this age, we are able to asses their developing teeth and decide if they are likely to need Early Orthodontic treatment. Otherwise we can keep them under review until they are ready to start treatment.

With NHS waiting lists at an all time high, due to the pandemic back log along with the changes made to NHS Orthodontics services in 2019, many parents are choosing to bypass these long waiting list in favour of Private Orthodontic care. This will ensure that children receive the treatment they need when it is most beneficial.
At Orthodontic Gallery we understand that making the decision to go ahead with Orthodontic Treatment is not something to be taken lightly. That is why we offer a number of Free No Obligation Appointments, to ensure you have as much information as possible before you decide on Orthodontic treatment.
