The benefits of an orthodontic treatment for children and teenagers

At Landmark Dental, we understand that they way your child looks can have a significant impact on their self esteem. If they feel embarrassed about their smile, they may be reluctant to socialise or smile for photographs. Crooked or crowded teeth can also be more difficult to keep clean, leading to more problems in the future.

Orthodontic treatment for children or teenagers is a great way to address any concerns you or your child has about protruding or misaligned teeth, as well as correcting any problems that have arisen with their bite as their adult teeth have matured.

Orthodontic treatment for kids offers a range of benefits, including:

  1. Improved Oral Health: Orthodontic treatment can correct misaligned teeth and bite issues, reducing the risk of dental problems like cavities, gum disease, and uneven wear on teeth.

  2. Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: Straight teeth and a well-aligned smile boost a child’s self-confidence, improving their overall self-esteem and social interactions.

  3. Proper Jaw Development: Early intervention can guide proper jaw growth, preventing more complex orthodontic issues in the future.

  4. Speech Improvement: Correcting dental alignment can enhance speech clarity and pronunciation, aiding in effective communication.

  5. Easier Cleaning: Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of plaque buildup and making oral hygiene routines more manageable.

  6. Injury Prevention: Properly aligned teeth are less prone to injury during sports or accidental falls.

  7. Better Overall Health: Correcting orthodontic problems can contribute to better overall health by preventing issues like headaches, jaw pain, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

  8. Long-Term Savings: Addressing orthodontic concerns early can prevent the need for more extensive and costly treatments later in life.

  9. Improved Chewing and Digestion: Properly aligned teeth enable better chewing, which aids in digestion and overall nutritional health.

  10. Lifelong Smile Confidence: Investing in a child’s orthodontic treatment can provide a lifetime of improved oral health and a confident, beautiful smile.

Consulting with a qualified orthodontist can help determine the specific benefits and treatment plan that will best suit your child’s needs.

No more waiting lists for orthodontics

In April 2006, the government introduced a new arrangement for National Health Service dental treatment. All orthodontic practices in England with a contract to provide NHS treatment must comply with new criteria which is designed to prioritise treatment to those with the greatest need.

This criteria is based on the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN). Each patient is scored in regard to their need for orthodontic treatment and those who achieve a certain score are eligible. This arrangement also dictates the number of patients an orthodontic practice can treat under the NHS per year. Each practice has allocated funding which restricts the number of patients a practice can treat at any one time.

Unfortunately, this has led to treatment waiting lists. 

Here at Landmark, we have introduced an independent fee structure for affordable orthodontic treatment for those patients that DO NOT qualify for NHS treatment. 

An early consultation with our specialist orthodontist Rohini will set your child up for life when it comes to their oral health. This appointment doesn’t necessarily mean your child needs to start treatment right away, or indeed that your child needs treatment at all, but it’s a valuable opportunity for us to be able to assess their orthodontic needs and allow us to be proactive in the planning of any treatment.

We can usually start to consider teeth straightening treatments for children from around 12 years old, but this does depend on the development of their adult teeth, face and jaw. Our friendly specialist orthodontist Rohini will take a gentle, relaxed approach to examining their teeth and mouth, and take the time answer any questions you or your child may have, as well as discussing ideas for the end result.
