What are Teen Braces?

Children’s braces are orthodontic appliances designed to correct dental alignment and bite issues in children. They address common problems such as crowding, misalignment, and jaw irregularities to promote proper oral development and enhance overall dental health.

Benefits of Children's Braces

Opting for children’s braces offers numerous advantages for your child’s oral health and self-confidence. Some key benefits include:

  • Correcting misaligned teeth and bite issues

  • Enhancing oral hygiene and reducing the risk of dental problems

  • Promoting proper jaw growth and development

  • Creating a confident and beautiful smile

  • Boosting self-esteem and social well-being

Types of Teen Orthodontics

When it comes to teen braces, different options are available based on individual preferences and requirements. Let’s explore the most common types:

Traditional metal braces consist of metal brackets and wires that gradually shift the teeth into their proper positions. They are highly effective and durable, making them a popular choice for children.

Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces but use tooth-coloured or clear brackets, making them less noticeable. They provide an aesthetic alternative for children who desire a more discreet orthodontic treatment option.

Self-Lingual Braces

Self-ligating braces feature specialized brackets that eliminate the need for elastic bands. These braces provide faster treatment times and easier maintenance, reducing the number of appointments needed for adjustments.

Invisalign for Teens offers a virtually invisible and removable orthodontic treatment option. It utilizes a series of clear aligners to gradually straighten your child’s teeth. Invisalign for Teens is a convenient choice, allowing your child to eat, brush, and floss without restrictions.

“I underwent treatment with Dr Sarah Sadek, who in my opinion is the best in the field.  Choosing the right professional who could handle it properly was utterly crucial. I’m delighted to say Sarah was absolutely fantastic – caring, genuine and considerate throughout the whole process.”

“Dr Sadek was brilliant each time I visited and I cannot fault her. She knew the result I wanted to achieve and knew how to engineer my teeth into the right positions.  The process enjoyable and relaxing each visit.”

“I’m so excited with the results of my treatment. My friends were all waiting to see how it turned out and, now that they’ve seen my results, some are even rushing to sign up for similar treatment with Dr Sarah themselves.

I love the look of my teeth and as cheesy as it may sound, I now smile all the time!”


The ideal age for an initial orthodontic evaluation is around seven years old. However, the specific timing of treatment will depend on your child’s individual needs.

Braces may require some adjustments in eating habits and oral hygiene routines, but they should not significantly hinder your child’s daily activities. Our team will provide detailed guidance to ensure a smooth transition.

The duration of treatment varies depending on the complexity of your child’s case. On average, it can range from several months to a few years. Our orthodontic specialists will provide a more accurate estimate during the initial consultation.

It is common to experience some discomfort or soreness after the initial placement or adjustment of braces. However, this discomfort is temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Our orthodontists will provide detailed instructions on proper oral hygiene practices with braces, including brushing techniques, flossing methods, and the use of orthodontic-friendly tools.
