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

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.

  • Just had a fantastic craftsmanship done by Dorsa @Bhandal Dental practice on my front tooth. Excellent work and attitude. I get overly nervous at dentists. But i think this was the first time ever I actually got calmed down and did not rip the arms of the chair. Thank you, Dorsa, much appreciated.

  • Dorsa was fabulous, due to poor experiences with a different surgery in the past, I am utterly terrified of the dentist. However Dorsa put me at ease and constantly checked how I was feeling, I underwent NHS and cosmetic treatment and the results brought on happy tears, my teeth have never looked or felt so good. Thank you for giving me my smile back.

  • Don't usually see this dentist (Dorsa) My usual one Luckie was not available, I was having deep filling and she kept me at ease, explained everything she was doing and was so gentle that I didn't even feel the needle for when she froze my mouth. Would definitely want to see her again. Thank you.

  • I have been a patient with Bhandal for many years and I have never had a bad experience. I have recently had some composite bonding done by Dorsa who has done a fantastic job, she has a real eye for detail and has given me back the confidence to smile.
