Child & Adolescent Orthodontics

Misaligned jaws, overbites or overcrowded or crooked teeth may cause children and adolescents discomfort, toothache, tooth decay or gum disease, and these problems may escalate over time if untreated. Such orthodontic issues may also cause children and adolescents to feel shy or self-conscious.

At no.8 Clinic Cornmarket, our orthodontic solutions work by gently moving the jaws and teeth so they carefully align in the required position. More subtle and comfortable than the cumbersome, old-style “train track” braces or headgear, our catalogue of contemporary solutions includes interceptive orthodontics for crowding, fixed braces, functional appliances and removable appliances.

Our discreet orthodontic solutions for children and adolescents are made from a combination of lightweight, flexible and durable materials and can be tooth-coloured or transparent.

We’d be delighted to discuss your child or adolescent’s orthodontic requirements with you. Contact no.8 Clinic Cornmarket today.
