Teens & Children's braces, a special case for orthodontics

The treatment of children and fitting children’s braces is a special case because they are still growing. We strongly recommend that a child’s first visit to an orthodontic specialist takes place no later than the age of 7 if an orthodontic problem is detected. We have many years’ experience in providing children’s braces and orthodontics for kids, specialising in the particular needs and concerns of young people.

Some early warning signs that may indicate your child should see an orthodontist include:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Thumb and finger sucking
  • Speech difficulty
  • Difficulty in chewing or biting
  • Grinding or clenching of teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Signs of enamel wear

Interceptive treatment is performed on young, growing children with the intent of improving a poorly developing situation. This could either be a growth discrepancy such as misaligned jaws, severely overcrowded or protruding teeth or to correct harmful oral habits.

Metamorphosis has specialised plans and clinics for Kids and Teens to ensure they are getting the treatment they need. For more information on the treatments, click on the below.
