Braces for children

Being able to smile with confidence is a gift that lasts a lifetime

Crooked teeth can cause embarrassment – whatever your age. Give your child the opportunity to grow up with beautiful teeth with help from the specialist orthodontic team at Thistle Dental in Aberdeen.

Braces transform the smiles of children providing them with a lifetime of confidence. Our experienced orthodontic team offers a full range of orthodontic appliances for our younger patients and whether they are seen on the NHS or privately, you can be assured they will receive excellent care.

Orthodontic treatment makes the best of natural teeth and normally takes between 12 and 18 months to complete. Once your child’s teeth and jaws are better aligned they will be able to eat more comfortably, look after their teeth more easily and smile without feeling self-conscious. 

There are sound health benefits for having orthodontic treatment to help straighten children’s teeth. Reaching the harmful bacterial plaque that builds up on teeth that are crooked or overlap can be tricky - straight teeth are easier to clean so there is less chance of decay. 

As well as treating younger patients who are already registered with us, we also welcome referrals from nearby family dentists for NHS and private braces.
