Early intervention orthodontics
Orthodontic therapy transforms smiles by naturally restoring the harmony and balance of the teeth – and the results can be truly life changing. Traditionally, orthodontists wait until children have lost all of their milk teeth before even considering braces. The latest research has found that early intervention orthodontics can have absolutely fantastic results, which is why we can treat children at Marlborough Dental Studio from as young as six years old. Early intervention orthodontics more often than not prevents children from requiring braces in their teenage years when their appearance becomes really important and they can experience feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness.
Early intervention orthodontics helps expand children’s arches, allowing the adult teeth to come through in a better, straighter, more aesthetically pleasing position. This reduces crowding and improves the jaw position and bite. By starting at a young age we are able to work with the child's growing and developing jaws, making natural spaces for their teeth and thereby avoiding the need for the extraction of healthy teeth.
Why choose us?
When determining orthodontic care, our experts consider your child’s whole face as well as their profile, bone tissue and lip and muscular structure. This is called ‘face-driven orthodontics’ and our principal dentist Stephen Tarr and specialist orthodontist Graham Gardner have had extensive training in this area. Instead of just looking at straightening their teeth, a face-driven approach focuses on your child’s long-term facial balance. Our clinicians want your child’s teeth and smile to look as good after a year as they will after 30. Traditional extraction orthodontics has proven that profiles can be ruined for life when clinicians concentrate solely on the teeth and not the whole face.
