We understand that life can be busy. With the aid of cutting edge technology such as Dental Monitoring, we offer treatment options that fit around you and your lifestyle including:

Invisalign® gives you the option to straighten your teeth discreetly. Using clear plastic trays known as ‘aligners’, Invisalign® is virtually invisible and works over a period of time – determined by our orthodontic team – to straighten your teeth in to their ideal position.

Spark Aligners
Spark Aligners are made using TruGEN™ material; an extremely thin, clear and comfortable material. Hand polished and shaped for your comfort, Spark Aligners are designed for your desired smile using machine precision.

Fixed braces
The ‘original’ orthodontic treatment, fixed braces have changed a lot since the very first models; they are smaller, more discreet, more comfortable and more effective. Using a system of brackets, archwires and elastics, braces are made of metal and are fixed to the front of each tooth with a strong adhesive. A metal archwire runs through the brackets, which are all held together with elastic bands.

Clear braces
If you’re looking for a discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces, clear braces are a great option for you. Clear braces work just like traditional fixed braces, except the brackets are made of ceramic instead of metal. The ceramic is durable and tooth-coloured, so it will blend in with the natural colour of your smile.

Early Orthodontic Treatment

There are steps that can be taken to guide your child’s growing smile that can often reduce the cost and length of orthodontic treatment that they may need in their teenage years.

Early treatment also provides Dr Christopher Jordan, Practice limited to Orthodontics with the opportunity to:

  • Guide incoming teeth into the proper position
  • Regulate the width of your child’s jaws
  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Correct thumb-sucking habits

Your child may not be ready for orthodontic treatment at this age, and we will only recommend treatment if it is necessary. We would suggest that your child’s teeth and jaws are monitored regularly by their dentist to determine the best time to begin treatment.

Treatment options available to younger patients:

Braces for children and teenagers

Orthodontics FAQs

  • If you are wearing braces or a retainer, we would recommend that you brush and floss your teeth after every meal using a toothpaste that contains flouride.

Dental Monitoring is a cutting-edge App that allows us to remotely track your clear aligner treatment progress. So, instead of coming in to the practice for regular adjustment appointments, you can send us a picture of your smile through the App, wherever you are.

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear plastic trays called aligners, these aligners are virtually invisible and work to gently move your teeth over time to create a beautiful and straight smile.

As every patient’s course of treatment is different, Dr Laura Hernández Horlock, Practice limited to Orthodontics will advise you on how often you should change your aligners.

If you have missing teeth or crowns you can still wear braces. A tooth with a crown will move in a similar manner as a normal tooth with a simple filling. Orthodontic treatment will aid the alignment of remaining teeth.

There are a few tell-tale signs that your child needs to see an orthodontist, such as:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Crowded or poorly positioned teeth
  • Jawbones that shift or make noise
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Teeth that don’t meet together when biting
  • Jaws and teeth that are out of proportion to their face
  • Finger-sucking habits that continue beyond the age of six

Not all signs of orthodontic issues are obvious. Thanks to our expertise and cutting-edge technology, we can diagnose and treat problems before they become apparent.
