Adult braces have become increasingly popular in recent years. Many adults choose to undergo orthodontic treatment to address dental issues such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, or misalignment that may have been left uncorrected from childhood.
Braces for adults can enhance dental health, improve self-confidence, and result in long-lasting positive effects on overall oral well-being. It is recommended to consult with an orthodontist to determine the most suitable treatment plan based on individual needs and goals.
Braces for children are aimed at addressing dental issues in the early stages of a child’s development. These issues may include overcrowding, misalignment, or malocclusions. Treatment usually involves an evaluation by a paediatric orthodontist, who will create a personalised plan using braces such as metal or ceramic braces.
By addressing these issues at a young age, kids can achieve a straighter smile, improve oral function, and prevent potential complications in the future.

Braces typically stay on for an average of 18 to 24 months, although the duration can vary depending on the specific case and individual needs. It’s best to consult with an orthodontist who can assess your situation and provide a more accurate estimate based on your teeth alignment and treatment plan.
Most children would benefit from orthodontic treatment at 11-12 years of age, but some do require earlier interventions. We are happy to see children of any age for an orthodontic assessment if children, parents/guardians or dentists have any concerns.
Most patients under 18 can get braces on the NHS if they are needed. Adults can get braces through the NHS, but eligibility and availability may vary depending on the specific circumstances. Generally, orthodontic treatment on the NHS is more commonly provided to children and young people who meet certain criteria, while adults usually have to consider private options.
