We believe that all children should grow up with strong, healthy teeth and to give them a helping hand we offer free examinations to all children under the age of six, when attending with parents. Our team are keen to ensure children are confident at the dentist and provide a gentle yet thorough approach to treating them.
Modern orthodontic techniques mean that it is straight forward for children to have a broad smile without crowding. Although not on the GDC specialist register for orthodontics, Dr Nick O’Hare has over 20 years experience in many orthodontic techniques and so has the ability to recommend the most appropriate treatment for your child. Nick utilises computer-aided design and manufacture so that appointment times can be shortened and treatment times reduced whilst delivering the optimum outcome. More information about the CAD/CAM technology at the Insignia website or we also have a good video of the treatment.
In addition, tooth coloured/aesthetic brackets make braces less noticeable, even though fashion today dictates that most children don’t seem to worried about showing their braces; and developments in orthodontic wire technology have made treatment more comfortable and efficient.
Nick finds it very fulfilling to see the positive changes in confidence and self-esteem that are so often apparent in teenagers as their treatment comes to an end.
In order to make this treatment accessible to as many children as possible, we are happy to allow parents to spread the cost over the expected duration of treatment (typically 12- 18 months).
