What Are the Benefits of Fixed Teen Braces?

Getting braces is almost a rite of passage for many teenagers nowadays, all in a bid to ensure they’ve got beautifully straight smiles as they reach adulthood. However, accessing dental treatment for teens can be frustrating when it comes to the NHS. Perhaps your teenager hasn’t qualified for free orthodontic treatment on the NHS but still wants straightened teeth, or maybe they’ve been placed on an impossibly long waiting list.

Why Get Braces as a Teenager?


If it looks like your teenager’s teeth are beginning to grow crooked or not as straight as they’d like, then we’re here to help. Orthodontics doesn’t just improve the aesthetics of a smile – it works to also improve the overall bite. Therefore braces can have a positive effect on your overall health. And what better time to have braces than when your child’s friends and classmates have braces too?

At Dental Solutions, we have an affordable interest-free payment plan that allows you to budget for treatment.

The Benefits of Fixed Teen Braces

Besides creating a lovely smile and improving self-esteem, there are additional benefits to having straight teeth. Improper chewing due to misaligned teeth or bites can also result in uneven wear on the teeth and issues with the jaw. Straighter teeth also make it easier to chew food; if teeth are severely out of line, they may not be able to play their role in breaking down food as effectively as possible. Your teeth are part of a much larger system of muscles and joints that can affect your head, neck and other parts of your body. Because everything in your body is linked, a bad bite could cause other issues without even realising it. For example, teeth that are too crowded or overlapping may cause frequent headaches.

What’s more, straight teeth can prevent difficulties with speech. If your teeth are out of line or protrude too far forward, it can affect your speaking patterns. When an overbite or underbite gets adjusted, patients can pronounce certain words better. This can also help to prevent snoring problems that can become apparent in the future. Straighter teeth are also much easier to keep clean, especially for adolescents, preventing decay or gum disease issues that may also affect their oral health in the future.

Other benefits of getting fixed teen braces with Dental Solutions include:

  • Teeth are regularly checked during treatment time
  • Immediate treatment is available – no waiting lists
  • They’re easily kept clean with regular brushing and flossing
  • Affordable thanks to our payment plan

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
