Kids & Teens Braces
When to Start Treatment?
The most common time for orthodontic treatment is at the age of adolescent (age 11-15). The reason being is that by age 12 most permanent teeth have erupted. Moreover, it is easy to detect crooked teeth, bad bites, and gap teeth during this age range.
Another benefit besides fitting in with their friends, teens at this age are growing rapidly, and the orthodontist has a better chance of taking advantage of these growth spurts to help improve the patients bite and teeth. Increased metabolism can help decrease the treatment time and decrease the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.
This is the best time to start treatment, because the teens are typically eager to wear braces. Also, most of their friends are wearing braces, and they enjoy fitting in. At the same time, the parent enjoys their child’s enhanced smile and cooperation during treatment.

Your Child's First Check-up
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they're found early. A checkup no later than age seven gives your orthodontist the opportunity to recommend the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time. If early treatment is in order, the orthodontist may be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
A few advantages of early treatment are the following:
To create room for adult erupting teeth
Influencing jaw growth to create optimal facial symmetry
Reducing the need for future tooth extractions
To reduce the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
To preserve space for teeth that need to erupt
To reduce future treatment time with braces
To reduce the need for tooth removal
To avoid the need of future surgery
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost of your child's orthodontic treatment depends largely on case complexity, the type of orthodontic brace and the duration of the treatment required.
We offer 15 minute FREE Initial Consultations with our specialist to discuss your child's orthodontic problems, treatment options and how much orthodontic will cost with a detailed quotation. If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will then book a 30 minute records appointment for your child (digital x-rays, 3D scans of your teeth, photos) which will be followed by a separate 30 minute treatment planning discussion appointment.
The cost for the Full Consultation is €100 for Kids & Teens and covers both appointments. This non-refundable consultation fee will be deducted from the overall cost of your child's braces treatment if you decide to start treatment with us within the next 12 months.
