10 signs it’s time for your child to visit the orthodontic clinic

If any of the following 10 signs apply to your child then it’s time to visit an orthodontic clinic:

  1. Their teeth are misplaced or crowded
  2. Their teeth protrude
  3. They clench or grind their teeth
  4. They suck their thumb or fingers
  5. The enamel on their teeth appears to be worn down
  6. They find it difficult to bite or chew
  7. They have problems with their speech
  8. They have missing teeth
  9. They lost their baby teeth early or they lost/are losing their baby teeth late
  10. They bite their cheek or the palate of their mouth


Can adults visit the orthodontist?

Absolutely! It’s a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is only effective while teeth are still growing.

You’re never too old to enjoy the potentially life-changing new confidence of a beautiful, straight smile and adult patients are often more suitable for our “almost-invisible” braces.

If you’re unhappy about your crooked, twisted or gappy teeth then it’s probably time for you to see an orthodontist. Download our free Teeth Straightening Guide For Kids to learn more.


Are orthodontists the same as dentists?

 You have a simple choice. You can be treated by a specialist orthodontist with General Dental Council “specialist status” who works day in day out helping people to enjoy straighter teeth.

Or you can be treated by an all-rounder dentist who does teeth straightening among many other treatments.
