Helping your child start life with a smile

Having a great smile can make a huge difference to your confidence. At Weston Orthodontic Centre we offer a wide choice of treatment options for your child.

There are strict clinical criteria that children have to meet to qualify for Government-funded NHS treatment (Index of treatment need).

For those who meet the qualifying criteria, we can offer free NHS orthodontic treatment. This includes removable appliances and the traditional metal "train track" braces.

For those who do not qualify for NHS orthodontic treatment, or for those who would prefer a wider range of cosmetic options we offer private treatment. These private treatments include:

  • Tooth-coloured and clear cosmetic braces
  • Lingual braces which are fitted on the tongue side of your teeth (Incognito™)
  • Removable and clear aligner systems (Invisalign® or Clearstep™)

Our initial consultation for children is free and available for all children under the age of 18. After a detailed assessment, we can tell you if your child:

  • Would benefit from orthodontic treatment.
  • If they are ready for orthodontic treatment.
  • If they qualify for government funded NHS treatment.

We are happy for your child to be referred from your general dentist. Alternatively you can ask us directly to see your child if you have any concerns.
