Treatments for children

Set your child’s smile up for success by bringing them to Chesterfield Orthodontics for an orthodontic consultation. Early orthodontic treatment can help stop problems in their tracks and ensure your child gets a happy, healthy smile with the least time and investment on your part.

When should my child first visit a Specialist Orthodontist?

In the UK, it is recommended for children to visit a Specialist Orthodontist around the age of 10. At this age, their adult teeth have started to erupt and their jaws are still growing - making it the best time to assess their bite.

We might not start treatment at this young age, but we can diagnose orthodontic issues before they begin and help shorten the length of treatment needed in their teenage years. We can monitor your child’s smile and intervene at the most beneficial moment.

Early treatment with functional appliances

A functional appliance is often used in early treatment to balance the jaws and create facial harmony. For example, we use the Twin Block to guide your child’s lower jaw forward into alignment. These appliances reduce the amount of time your child will need to spend in braces.
