Growth Orthodontics
Braces

Growth orthodontics uses growth guidance principles to create space for alignment of crowded teeth, usually without the need for tooth extractions.

As well as straight teeth and a nice smile, growth orthodontic treatment has a number of other objectives:

  • Development of proper jaw size and shape
  • Establishment of a proper relationship between the upper and lower jaws, with a balanced and stable bite
  • Improvement in orofacial function (nasal breathing, chewing and swallowing)
  • Optimisation of facial form

Growth orthodontics is particularly suited to adolescents between the ages of 11 to 15.
If you are considering braces for you or your child, please take advantage of our free, no-obligation orthodontic assessment.
