Children’s Orthodontic

Our skilled children’s orthodontists are experts in children’s braces and specialise in personalised treatment plans for children using the latest advancements in orthodontic technology.

Train Track Braces

Train track braces, also known as traditional braces, are a tried and tested method for correcting misaligned teeth and bite issues. These braces consist of metal brackets that are securely bonded to the teeth and connected by a thin wire. Over time, we will adjust the wire to apply controlled pressure, gradually moving the teeth into their desired positions. They are suitable for a wide range of orthodontic problems and provide a reliable solution for individuals seeking comprehensive teeth alignment and bite correction.


Invisalign for kids is a modern and discreet orthodontic solution designed to address various dental issues in children and teenagers. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign utilises a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit perfectly fit your child’s teeth. These aligners gently guide the teeth into their proper positions over time, effectively treating concerns like overcrowding, spacing, and misalignment. Invisalign offers several benefits for children and teenagers, including improved oral hygiene since the aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. They’re also virtually invisible, reducing any potential self-consciousness that may arise during the treatment process.

Your 4 Step Children’s Orthodontic Process

Evaluation & Consultation

During this consultation, we will assess your child's dental and facial development, looking for issues like misalignment, crowding, or bite problems. Photographs, X-rays, and impressions may be taken to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Treatment Planning

After the evaluation, we will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your child's needs. This plan outlines the recommended orthodontic treatment, whether it involves braces, aligners, expanders, or other devices. The orthodontist will discuss the treatment options with you and your child, addressing any questions or concerns.

Orthodontic Treatment

Once the treatment plan is approved, the actual orthodontic treatment begins. This may involve the placement of braces, aligners, or other orthodontic appliances. Your child will have regular follow-up appointments to adjust and monitor the progress of their treatment.

Retention Phase

After the active phase of treatment, your child enters the retention phase. During this period, a retainer is often provided to help maintain the newly achieved alignment of teeth and prevent relapse. Retainers are typically worn for a specified duration as recommended by our orthodontic team.




Children’s Orthodontic FAQ's

Listen to our lovely clients saying how much they love our friendly service.

We typically recommend orthodontic treatment for children and teenagers between the ages of 7 and 18, depending on their individual needs and dental development.

Train track braces are the traditional, fixed option involving metal brackets and wires, while Invisalign offers clear, removable aligners. The choice depends on factors like comfort, appearance, and treatment complexity.

Yes, Invisalign can be a great option for children. To ensure compliance, we provide aligner tracking tools, and our team monitors progress closely to make adjustments as needed.

Treatment duration varies depending on the severity of the dental issues. On average, it can range from 12 to 24 months, but our orthodontists will provide a personalised estimate during the initial consultation.

Initially, there may be some discomfort or adjustment period, but most children adapt quickly. Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable, while braces may cause minor soreness, which can be managed with orthodontic wax.

About a year ago I had dental implant treatment at Sherwood Park Dental Practice. This replaced a 5 tooth denture that I'd been using for several years following a sporting injury. Pablo and his team are very professional and friendly and the treatment has greatly improved my life. Not to mention, allowed me to be more adventurous about what I eat! I wholeheartedly recommend Sherwood Park Dental Practice.

Perfect service from Gerard and his colleague. I had a phobia of dentists and left my teeth without any attention for way too long! I attended the practice and saw Tracy first of all for a hygienist appointment a few months ago. I was concerned about my teeths condition due to being on extensive medication. I was advised to have an appointment with Pablo and then Gerard to see what they could do and I’m so glad I did. Gerard has performed an extensive cleanup, I was given a local anaesthetic and everything was fine. I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment in 4 weeks for the other side of my mouth to be done. Phobia gone! Thank you so much Pablo you and team 🙌🙌🙌

After an initial discussion at Sherwood Park Dental Practice and then a full consultation with Pablo, Nuria and David I took their advice on going for implant retained dentures. From the first visit to the final 'fit' I could not be happier with not only the end result but with their professional, caring, informative service they provided. The dentures were specific as I did originally from my existing ordinary denture had an 'underbite' but David created a denture that gives me a level bite. To the entire team who I was under, Pablo, Nuria, David, Diego and Joanna on reception thankyou for such an outstanding service..

Had several appointments here, mainly for my dental hygiene. Have to mention at this poiny my overall experience. After my first dental cleaning, I was left amazed of how my teeth looked, it was like I had a whitening session. It was hard to ignore the effort put into the whole procedure, as my previous experiences in other places never impressed me. Thanks to Tracy, my oral hygiene has changed completely because I wanted my teeth to always look like that. I see her every 6 months and she always puts the same effort along with valuable information to improve. Thank you for your passion!
