Why choose Toothbeary for your teens interceptive orthodontics?
If you’re looking for a highly rated and experienced dentist who provides expert orthodontics for teens, then our award winning and state-of-the-art clinic in London can help.
Interceptive orthodontic treatment can typically start at the younger age of eight or nine but a later phase will begin around the age of eleven or older.
With removable braces, it can provide a discreet way for our young teenage patients to receive treatment. These orthodontic appliances are immensely useful when adult teeth come through and cause a narrowing of the jaw or if there is an issue with certain bite problems.
Functional braces are a type of removable orthodontic appliance which can be used on the top and bottom teeth to improve jaw relationships and bites. They work by keeping the lower jaw in a forward position, aiding facial harmony. It’s beneficial to fit them during adolescence, taking advantage of natural facial development.
At Toothbeary, we will guide teenagers on how to get the most out this method and explain that it may require fixed braces towards the end of the treatment. This will help us to carry out precise adjustments to achieve greater results.
To keep this treatment affordable, we ensure our prices are highly competitive compared to other specialist teen dentists in London, we even offer 0% Interest Free credit for certain treatments to help spread the cost.

“We can’t recommend Toothbeary highly enough – we travelled from Staffordshire to have our children treated here as they offer an unparalleled range of options for treatment that most dentists, NHS or private, simply don’t seem prepared to offer for children. Every moment of a Toothbeary visit, from the greeting at Reception, to the interactions with the dentists and nurses, to the gold coin and balloon to take home, is wonderfully well managed, professional, friendly and tailored to the children.”
Our unique approach to treating your child is designed around building trust and confidence through positive experiences so we can promote and reinforce good oral hygiene habits whilst instilling the need to care for their own teeth.
