Children’s Braces by Dr Kyi

Dr Kyi often assesses children aged between 10-12 years, when nearly all the permanent teeth have erupted.

Orthodontic treatment can be started on certain types of tooth problems even before all permanent teeth have erupted. Through an orthodontic evaluation assessment, you’ll be giving your child the best opportunity for lifelong healthy teeth.

With orthodontic evaluations and treatment, Dr Kyi will be able to:

  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
  • Correct harmful oral habits e.g. thumb sucking
  • Reduce the risk of plaque and food trap due to crowded teeth
  • Guide jaw growth e.g. to correct overbites
  • Correct cross-bites that can lead to facial asymmetric growth
  • Guide permanent teeth into a more favourable position
  • Create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face
  • Possibly reduce the need for further treatment when patients are older

How Long Does It Take To Correct Teeth With Braces?

Treatment usually takes 12-18 months and a variety of brace appliances may be used to correct specific problems. This may involve removable braces, fixed metal or clear braces, Damon braces, Invisalign Teen or lingual Incognito brace treatment. Often fixed brace treatment is started when all the permanent teeth have erupted, but there are certain early treatments which may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, Dr Kyi will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing using dentofacial orthopaedic treatment.

Why do I need to see an orthodontist for my children’s teeth?

Making sure your children have healthy and strong teeth is a vital part of their development. Their teeth are for life and you must ensure that they’re looked after and treated in safe hands. Coming to see our highly-trained, award-winning specialist Dr Chaw Su Kyi, your children’s teeth are in safe hands with her vast experience of successfully treating over a thousand children. Making sure you and your family are completely relaxed, our offices in Harley Street will make you feel you are in a five-star hotel rather than at a dental practice.

Many of her patients are international families from USA, Europe, Asia and Australia and choose Dr Kyi as her forward-thinking approach for early corrective treatment can prevent the need for more complex treatment later in their teens.

We just wanted to thank the team at WeLCOMe Orthodontics! We arrived from Australia knowing we had to find an orthodontist within our first few months of arrival. We did our research and took a leap of faith joining the WeLCOMe team. From the first introductory visit through to the last visit some two and a half years later we have been incredibly impressed with the professional, calm, friendly manner of the whole team. It is a daunting experience for both patient and family and the personal approach really made us feel that there was significant individual care. And the result. Well, how fantastic does our daughter look now? She had a pretty significant overbite with a big gap between her front teeth and didn’t like to smile very much. Now she has beautiful teeth, no gap which was important to her, and a lovely open smile. We are incredibly happy with the results and the care is taken. Thank you so much!!!!!! We can’t recommend WeLCOMe Orthodontics more highly. -Georgia’s Mum

How do I choose the right orthodontist?

We recommend orthodontic assessment from age 8yrs to check all the teeth are coming through correctly.

Orthodontic treatment can be started on certain types of tooth problems even before all baby teeth have fallen out. Through an orthodontic evaluation assessment, you’ll be giving your child the best opportunity for lifelong healthy teeth. Dr Kyi has successfully treated over a thousand children and the words of parents describe their experience of braces treatment.

Dr Kyi – Amazing . Cannot recommend highly enough. My son lost all his front teeth in an accident as a young child so any visits to the dentist as he was growing up were something of a nightmare for us . Finding the ‘right Orthodontist’ – excellent enough to tackle his orthodontic needs and friendly, nice, kind, and smiley enough to cope with his apprehension and fears was always going to be a tall order . We did our research and met Dr Kyi . Amazing – 18 months later my son, now as relaxed a patient as any dentist might hope to have, has the most incredible smile and a perfect set of teeth, of which he is most proud, and we are delighted. We honestly cannot thank her enough. -Harry’s Mum
