Children’s braces now mean a healthier future

Interceptive treatment can make future orthodontic treatment quicker or even redundant
Early orthodontic treatment - like a palatal expander - can help prevent or minimise the overcrowding of teeth. The earlier the treatment, the better the outcome.

Straight teeth will promote oral hygiene
Children’s braces ensure more than just an attractive smile - resulting straight teeth allow for proper cleaning, and will help prevent gum disease, bad breath and tooth decay. It’s more than just about ‘aesthetics’ and school photos!

Get a treatment plan now and a payment plan over time

FAQs

How much do braces cost for kids?

This varies from patient to patient as per their treatment plan, but generally start from $8,000. We offer flexible payment plan options with competitive interest rates so your child can be on their way to a straight smile.

What age can kids get braces?

Children typically get braces from 10 years and upwards. If they are a responsible teenager, Invisalign - clear plastic aligners - might be an appropriate option. You can read more about the difference between Invisalign and braces here.

What’s involved in orthodontics for kids?

There are various types of children orthodontic treatments and they can include - palatal expanders (to stretch overcrowded teeth or minimise the potential for overcrowding of teeth), metal braces (traditional), ceramic braces (clear) and lingual braces (placed behind the teeth).

Why don’t you include Invisalign as an orthodontic treatment for kids?

Invisalign puts a lot of the responsibility on the wearer - i.e. to be effective they must be worn at least 22 hours each day. Relying on children to put them back in after eating or to actually wear them full time while in school is a big weight to bear for little shoulders!
