Private orthodontic treatments and braces for children

Children’s orthodontic treatments can detect potential future dental issues quickly, and safe procedures help to create a great smile and straight teeth to be proud of from an early age. Metal orthodontic braces are highly effective in straightening the teeth, whereas ceramic braces offer a discreet alternative as they match the colour of the teeth.

Lingual braces attach to the back of the tooth, hiding them from sight, and nearly invisible aligners, Invisalign braces, are now available for ultimate discretion. Most brace options will be replaced or tweaked every two weeks to progressively move teeth into the preferred position.

The benefits of private orthodontics

  • Avoid long NHS queues
  • Increases confidence
  • Early detection of dental issues

Free consultation for private orthodontics

Seek expert advice from our professional orthodontic consultants during a free consultation and understand more about the remedial solutions, including metal, ceramic, lingual and invisible braces.

Private dental care and children’s orthodontics are available from the age of ten with Bhandal Dental Practices. Procedures are swift and can start before all the adult teeth are in place. Some mild teeth issues may not be covered on the NHS, in which case private dental procedures are the only option to perform cosmetic solutions. Private orthodontics also offers a wider range of solutions, including Invisalign.

Frequently asked questions

How can we help?

The main difference between NHS and private orthodontics is the availability. NHS braces are only available for certain cases, and your child may not meet the requirements. There are also age restrictions to consider and long waiting lines, so your child might age out of the free treatment category before they have had a chance to start treatment. Private treatments also offer a wider range of solutions, including Invisalign.

No, you do not need a referral for private orthodontics. If your child does not meet the clinical requirements for braces on the NHS, or if you would like to start treatment sooner, private treatment could be the ideal option.

Most children will have all their adult teeth by the age of 12, which is when they can start to consider orthodontic treatment. However, some mild teeth issues may not be covered on the NHS, in which case private dental procedures are the only option to perform cosmetic solutions. With regular checkups, we can begin monitoring their teeth for signs that braces might be required in the future.

This will depend on the severity of the teeth issue. In general, treatment will last between 18 months to two years. However, every case is different, and we will be able to give you a more accurate estimate during your child’s consultation.

  • I recently visited Dr. Dorsa for a dental procedure, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Dr. Dorsa is not only incredibly professional but also exceptionally patient and kind. She has a unique way of making you feel calm and comfortable throughout the entire treatment process. What I appreciated most was her willingness to describe each step of the procedure, which really helped alleviate any anxiety I had. I highly recommend Dr. Dorsa to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate dentist.

  • I recently underwent Invisalign and whitening with Dr Simran and Demi, and couldn’t be more satisfied with the results!From the initial consultation to final adjustments, their level of care and attention to detail was truly outstanding.Dr Simran’s expertise and professionalism were evident from the get go. She took time to thoroughly explain the treatment process and answered all my questions with patience and clarity. Demi was equally fantastic, keeping me updated with the next steps and making each visit a pleasant one.I am so pleased with the results!! I highly recommend :)

  • Dr Dorsa and her Dental Nurse where amazing. I have Dentophobia, and always find treatments really hard to cope with, but Dr Dorsa and her Nurse where really supportive and reassuring, they made me feel so much at ease and ensured I was okay throughout my treatment. I felt very much looked after as an individual person. Thank you to Dr Dorsa and her Nurse and Bhandal Dental Staff in Blackheath, Rowley Regis.

  • My third visit to Dr Dorsa today. I have advanced gum disease & needed deep cleaning sessions to minimise effects of this. My individual treatment plan clearly explained including how to improve dental hygiene at home. Dr Dorsa delivered treatment in a sensitive caring manner & today’s results show a marked improvement to my gum health. Very happy with service provided & can recommend.
