Caring for our children - a special case for orthodontics
Our team of award winning specialist Orthodontists are highly experienced in working with children. In 2017 Metamorphosis won Best Children’s Care UK in the Oral B Awards. We ensure your child’s smile is your precious gift to them.
As children are still growing, and their teeth and face still forming, we strongly recommend that a child’s first visit to an orthodontic specialist takes place no later than the age of seven if an orthodontic issue is to be detected.
Our clinical expertise and use of the very best materials and equipment guarantees every brace is bespoke and will give your child a smile they will be proud of with no discomfort.
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.
In addition to specialist Orthodontic services for children we also focus on maintaining excellent oral health via Metamorphosis’ Junior Oral Health Plan, encourage protection of teeth and gums with the Meta School Sports Mouth Guard Programme and help children who need it with the Meta Thumb Sucking Clinic.
Orthodontics for Adults – it’s never too late
A common misconception is that orthodontics is only effective whilst the teeth are still growing and the shape of the face is developing.
However, that is not the case.
Thanks to the latest scientific techniques and expertise of our specialists, we offer orthodontic treatment to nearly all ages, assuring adults can achieve straight teeth and perfect oral health in a discreet and undetectable way.
Our range of available treatments include technologies such as: Invisalign, Damon and Lingual Braces.
These treatments help straighten the teeth using clear or subtle materials or with braces fixed behind the teeth that are not outwardly visible.
