Private Braces for Children

Ensure your child can smile with confidence.

From ultra-clear removable aligners, to tooth-coloured fixed braces, we have a brace option that will appeal to all children and teenagers.

Just like adults, children can feel embarrassed about their crooked teeth. Feeling self conscious as a child can have lasting effects. Children and teenagers who can smile without embarrassment are likely to be more confident in social situations than those who feel uncomfortable showing their teeth. 

Our digitally advanced, multi-disciplinary care centre boasts a highly skilled team of orthodontists, including a specialist with more than 40 years’ experience under his belt.

As well as having an outstanding team, we also invest in the very latest technology, such as intraoral scanning that allows us to provide exceptionally accurate dentistry - something that is especially useful when carrying out orthodontic treatment. The scanned images appear in crisp definition and the technology also eliminates the need for taking traditional, messy impressions that patients so often dislike.

Becoming a private orthodontic patient at Thistle Dental has a number of benefits including no waiting lists, appointment times that suit you and a wide choice of braces such as invisible and tooth-coloured options. We offer a Silver Service option for under 18s and prices start from just £900.00 per arch for fixed, metal braces. We also have the option of fixed ceramic braces that are less conspicuous.

Invisalign braces at Thistle Dental in Aberdeen

Invisalign Teen virtually invisible aligners have been designed with teenagers in mind and have been designed specifically for their mouths. The great benefit of Invisalign Teen aligners is that they provide an aesthetic, more flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile. 

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Teen aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, which means teenagers can carry on enjoying life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness associated with metal brackets and wires.

Invisalign aligners are removable, so your child can continue brushing and flossing normally, and this can lead to better overall dental health in the future. Each aligner also comes with a small, inconspicuous Blue Dot Indicator, which helps patients know if they are ready for their next set of aligners and shows parents that the braces are being worn as indicated.

We also offer Invisalign Lite, which looks and works the same as Invisalign Teen - only quicker - and is ideal for less complex cases, especially when you only want to straighten the front ‘smile’ teeth. And Invisalign i7, which provides results in as little as three months and is suitable for milder cases.

Ensuring smiles stay perfect

We make every attempt to ensure your child’s teeth remain straight, stable and stunning after treatment. It is normal for some minor tooth movement to occur throughout life, which is why we encourage all of our patients to wear retainers. 

Your child will be fitted with a retainer brace once their orthodontic treatment has finished to ensure their teeth remain in the perfect position. All of our patients are offered a year of supervised retention.
