Early orthodontics

Addressing orthodontic problems early is essential. Ignoring them or waiting until it’s too late could lead to small problems developing into serious issues and pave the way for prolonged and expensive treatment later on.

You’ll find our team sensitive to the growing pains of children and young adults, and ready with a range of safe, fast and discreet straightening options that won’t cause embarrassment in the common room or playground.

You’ll also discover straightening and orthodontic options for children and teens that you aren’t available at NHS centres.

We suggest an initial orthodontic assessment around 12 months after the adult teeth have fully erupted. Our childrens dentist will be able to advise you on the best time to see an orthodontist and we have a team of brace specialists ready to help.

At Harley Street Dental Studio we offer a range of braces including discreet and invisible options. Having orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to mean fixed metal braces, invisible braces such as those hidden behind the teeth or clear removable aligners can be great for children and adults alike who are concerned about how braces may look..

Starting Early

Early-years visits don’t just give your child the best possible chance of staying in good health, they’re also vital in helping children to get used to the sights and sounds of the dentist.

We recommend making an appointment for your child when aged around 12 months or within six months of their first teeth erupting.

Our child-friendly team will ensure your children are in safe hands as they grow.

Babies and toddlers

As soon as your baby’s teeth begin to emerge it is important to start paying attention to their oral hygiene and habits. This means brushing their teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste and paying attention to their diet and sugar intake.

We all know that sugar is bad for our teeth, but did you know it is the frequency it is consumed rather than the overall amount that does the damage? For example, it would be worse for your child’s teeth to eat one sweet every hour throughout the day than to eat a whole pack of sweets in one go. The best time for a child to eat sweet foods is at the end of a meal.

Don’t forget there is sugar in other things too like fruit juice and squash. It is really important to look after the health of milk teeth as they are essential not only for eating but for speech development, facial appearance and saving space for the adult teeth to grow into.

At this young age your child does not need regular check-ups but it can be beneficial to bring them along to the dentist with you and get them used to the experience. Try to ensure that you are calm and happy during your appointments so that young children do not pick up on anxiety associated with visiting the dentist.

Age five to six

At around the age of 5 or 6 your child’s first permanent teeth will start to emerge. These adult molars do not replace any baby teeth but grow in behind them, many people therefore do not realise that they are permanent teeth and so do not look after them properly. This is the age that you should start bringing your child to the dentist for regular check-ups.

We can also offer services like fissure sealants on the back teeth which can help to protect them from decay. The sealants work by filling in the small ‘fissures’ or gaps on the biting surface of the teeth, this means that food cannot be trapped in these spaces and the teeth are easier to clean. Fissure sealants are simply brushed on to the surface of the tooth and so are quick and pain free.We can also offer services like fissure sealants on the back teeth which can help to protect them from decay.

Age seven to nine

Once the baby teeth begin to be lost and replaced by adult teeth, this is the time to start assessing your child for potential orthodontic (brace) treatment. At about this age we can start to see the position of the adult teeth and monitor the growth of the jaw for potential problems.

Not everyone will need to have their teeth straightened with braces, but if your child does then we have a team of orthodontists and dentists who can provide a range of options to help. In some cases, early orthodontics can help to avoid lengthy brace treatment later in life or even prevent the need for facial surgery

Teenagers

When your children become more independent and are brushing their teeth without supervision, we can ensure that they have a good tooth brushing technique and are reaching all the areas of their mouth. Regular hygiene appointments give us the opportunity to give your teenagers teeth a thorough clean and provide tips on good oral hygiene.
