Orthodontic treatment can greatly improve a child's self-esteem and confidence. There are two types of orthodontic treatment for children: Interceptive    treatment,    aimed    at    preventing    bite    problems.    Carried    out    between    the    ages    of    7    and    9,    treatment   typically   lasts   between   6   and   12   months.   Subsequent   comprehensive   orthodontic   treatment   is   often   still   required, but should be less complicated. Comprehensive    treatment,    carried    out    when    the    majority    of    adult    teeth    have    erupted    into    the    mouth    (normally   around   the   age   of   11).   This   is   the   typical   treatment   for   children   in   the   UK,   and   the   standard   for   NHS   treatment. Children   typically   wear   fixed   braces   for   12   to   24   months,   depending   on   the   complexity   of   the   case.   Retainers   are fitted to ensure a lasting result. There's    an    extensive    guide    on    almost    everything    you    need    to    know    about    braces    on    the    British   Orthodontic   Society website here .

Why do we need to extract teeth?
While    I    make    every    effort    to    avoid    tooth    extraction,    sometimes    it's    absolutely    necessary.    Reasons    for    tooth extraction include: Crowded upper and/or lower teeth Protruding upper lip Bite correction Cases of missing adult teeth To improve smile symmetry There   is   a   common   misconception   that   if   you   have   orthodontic   treatment   under   the   NHS   then   the   orthodontist   is more   likely   to   take   out   teeth.   This   is   not   true.   The   reality   is   that   if   you   do   not   qualify   for   NHS   treatment   (because you have an IOTN lower than 3.6), the probability that you will need teeth extracted is far lower. Many   of   my   patients   have   braces   on   the   NHS   without   the   removal   of   teeth.   In   some   cases   we   can   start   treatment without teeth removal and review the need during treatment.

Mouth   guards   are   essential   to   preventing   damage   to   teeth   while   playing   contact   sports   -   both   during   orthodontic treatment   and   afterwards.   Fully   customised   mouth   guards   are   made   by   taking   an   impression   over   the   teeth.   The mouth guard can be adjusted during orthodontic treatment to allow for tooth movement.
