Orthodontic treatment for children
We have strived to create a family friendly practice here at Angle House Orthodontics to ensure all members of your family, the younger ones especially, feel comfortable in the orthodontic environment.
All too often we see cases of orthodontic problems which could have been fixed earlier in life. That is why we promote early consultations for children and encourage parents to bring their children in to see us when your children are between the ages of 7 and 11.
Benefits of an early consultation
There are numerous benefits to having us assess your child’s orthodontic needs:
- They’ll become familiar with the clinic
- We can be proactive about the treatment they will need
- Identifying problems early on could help with a reduction in treatment fees later
Invisalign with Precision Wings
Another treatment we offer for our younger patients is part of the revolutionary Invisalign family. Invisalign with Precision Wings has been developed specifically with teens and teenagers in mind as it’s not only designed to straighten teeth but correct jaw misalignment as well.
Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
Free sibling screening
To ensure your child’s mouth and teeth are developing correctly, it is recommended that an orthodontic assessment is conducted from the age of 7 or 8. An early examination can lead to a simpler and more effective treatment plan for the patient and greater peace of mind for you, the parent.
In our sibling screening programme, at your request, we do a COMPLIMENTARY brief orthodontic evaluation on our patients’ younger siblings. These evaluations are a simple check to see if there are any problems that need to be addressed when they are happening, not when it’s too late.
Please speak to Dr Kataria at your child’s next appointment to arrange a sibling check.
