The orthodontic treatment required will depend on a range of factors that are as individual as your child. Depending on their needs options include:
- functional appliances
- self ligating braces
- fine wires or retainers
- clear braces
- lingual braces: braces placed behind the teeth where they can’t be seen
- Invisalign Teen : removable aligners that are virtually invisible
The amount of time it takes to treat your child depends on a number of factors:
Early pre-teen assessment enables the iSmile Studio Balwyn team to monitor the growth of your child’s jaw and teeth development. Sometimes we may recommend your child’s treatment be postponed until they are a little older.
The orthodontic treatment required will determine how long the process takes. Every child develops differently and this will therefore influence the longevity of treatment. For instance one child may complete treatment in 12-18 months, while another may take 24 months.
Commitment is key. If your child is motivated and takes care of their braces and teeth, it can help reduce their treatment time, meaning their braces are removed earlier and they have their metal-free perfect smile.
