Wow! Fabulous dentist! Just registered myself and my two children after reading reviews. Went for our new patient check today. We're all nervous patients and have avoided the denist too long but the AMAZING team put us all at ease! The surgery, ethos and service are outstanding.

Calm environment and the receptionist is friendly. She sits with you to go through your introduction and asks if you have any concerns or worries. Dentist is very informative including showing you a 3D scan of your mouth. There is a screen on the ceiling so you can watch TV to distract you. It's not often you can say going to the dentist is a pleasant experience, but this really is.

What a fabulous dentists! Such a relaxing atmosphere and the staff are all so friendly. I especially love the brush stop where I brushed my teeth before I went in to see the dentist. As a busy mum of 3 this is such a handy thing to have and something I’ve never seen before. Now I’ve found Beyond Dental I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

What an absolute gem this place is! They have made this the most enjoyable visit to a dentist I've ever experienced. From the "brush stop" which is gorgeous and lets you brush your teeth before your appointment, to the beautiful green walls it is something to experience. I've never been excited to go back to the dentist before, but I am now!

Easy To Manage Monthly Payments

Interest Free Payment Plans

It's annoying to find out that the NHS won't cover your child's treatment, or that the wait could be up to two years which would be too late. This is why we offer interest free payment plans that break the cost down into more manageable amounts, so your child can access treatment when its needed.

The average cost of a child's orthodontic braces are around £3,500 from start to finish. We can break this down into monthly payments of £291.66 or offer you longer term finance plans that reduce payment to just £65 per month where required. We can discuss the various ways to pay during your consultation.

Braces For Teenagers & Children FAQs

What Is The Best Age For Braces?
The best age for braces is when all your child’s adult teeth have come through. This is usually around 12 or 13 years old, as your child’s jaw and mouth will still be growing, which means that the teeth are much easier to move and manipulate compared to an adult who is fully grown. By getting braces at a younger age, this means that treatment is less likely to take as long and the opportunity for improvement is greater.
What Are The Benefits of Private Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatments are used to make the most of your natural teeth without the need for any further cosmetic treatments. If your child has developed an orthodontic issue as they’ve gotten older, then you might be under the assumption that they are entitled to free orthodontic treatment on the NHS, but the reality is that unfortunately, child and teenager orthodontics are no longer routinely available. If your child is approved for NHS orthodontic treatment, then they will likely be limited to fixed metal braces and, due to long waiting lists, their treatment might be prolonged.

With private orthodontic treatment here at Beyond Dental, there are no lengthy waiting lists and you’re not restricted to inconvenient appointment times. We’re now welcoming new patients for children and teenager orthodontics at our Beyond Dental clinics and we can usually arrange a same day consultation so that we can get your child’s treatment started as soon as possible. We can also offer a wider range of treatment options, best suited to your child and their teeth, which can mean that treatment time is reduced. As well as enhanced treatment, you’ll also get to experience dentistry the Beyond way, with luxurious dental clinics, state of the art technology and a passionate team of fantastic dentists.
Do Braces Work?
In most cases, yes, braces do work at transforming smiles, but it is a treatment that needs to be maintained in order to sustain long term success. Following their treatment, your child will need to wear a retainer for some time in order to stop teeth reverting back into the position they were when treatment started. As we are a private dentist, we have a number of treatment types which means that post-treatment advice may differ depending on the treatment type that is best recommended to your child. We recommend that regular dental checkups continue during your child or teenagers orthodontic treatment so that we can monitor the health and condition of their teeth whilst having teeth straightening treatment.

With more severe orthodontic cases, it may be that braces can only do so much work without the need for further treatments. However, this can be discussed both during your initial consultation, as well as at regular points throughout your child’s orthodontic treatment.
Why Do I Need Braces?
Children who have crooked or misaligned teeth may struggle to brush their teeth properly. This can then lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Your smile may not be straight, or you might have teeth that are unable to push through the gum due to overcrowding or being impacted. If these issues are left untreated, then this can cause further problems as you age. By getting your teeth straightened at a young age, you not only have a straighter smile, but you can clean your teeth much easier, helping to protect your teeth and oral health well into your adult years.
How Long Do You Have To Have Braces?
If you get braces on the NHS, then you can expect treatment to last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years once treatment has started, which may take potentially years to secure. Here at Beyond Dental, you can avoid lengthy NHS waiting lists and get treatment started straight away with our same day consultations. Then, depending on your individual treatment plan and the type of braces you have fitted, treatment times can vary. We’ll ask you to come in for regular checkups so that we can see how your treatment is progressing and check the health of your teeth, mouth and gums. We can then keep you updated on your expected treatment times.
