The adult teeth are usually all through by the age of 11-14 and this is the most common time for orthodontic treatment.


Treatment will generally involve fixed braces for between a year and two years. Sometimes space is made by extracting adult teeth (your dentist would be asked to do this) but there are now many other options and extractions are less common than a few years ago.

If your son or daughter is concerned about the appearance of traditional fixed braces we offer less noticeable clear ceramic fixed braces or virtually unnoticeable Invisalign Teen.

Appointments are usually scheduled about every 6-8 weeks. We also offer a discount for “off-peak” appointments between 9.30 and 3.00 and a payment plan to spread your investment.
