Ortho Options - For a confident smile
Under 18's braces

It’s common for orthodontic treatment to begin in the teenage years, once all or most of the permanent teeth have come through. At that point it becomes clear whether someone might have dental concerns such as significant crowding, an over or underbite, or difficulty biting the teeth together which might affect eating or properly cleaning the teeth.

In cases where these issues are significant, braces will be available on the NHS. They assess who will receive braces according to a scoring system called the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need, or IOTN score.

Some teens may not meet the IOTN score, in which case the NHS treatment is not available, or the waiting list in their area may be very long meaning they are unable to start treatment quickly. That is why we have a range of affordable private orthodontic treatments available for teenagers.

Orthodontic treatments for teens

With our Ortho Options, we can provide a huge choice in private orthodontic treatment for teenagers, suitable for a wide range of budgets.

To see if it’s right for you or your teenager, you’ll first have an assessment with one of our team who will explain the different treatments, what is involved and our finance options*. There are no long waiting lists, so if you are keen to go ahead we can book an appointment to see an orthodontist without delay and begin the treatment journey.

  • Metal
    fixed braces


    Metal fixed appliances consist of small metal brackets attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist control over the tooth movements. The ties can be coloured giving you the option to customise the brace.

  • Iconix


    Iconix braces are a sophisticated and elegant alternative to traditional braces. These braces are made of stainless-steel champagne-coloured brackets that provide aesthetics of rose gold attached to the teeth with a wire tied into the brackets. The wires are then used to move the teeth into the desired position giving the orthodontist control over the tooth movements.

  • Clear


    Clear aligners offer a virtually invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of clear, customised removable aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. Advanced technology allows you to visualise your completed treatment. This is a great option for those wanting a more discreet, wire free treatment.

Why choose Ortho Options

  • 1.Teeth straightening treatment provided for under 18s that don’t qualify for NHS treatment
  • 2.Assessment with a treatment co-ordinator who’ll explain how it works
  • 3.If you do decide to proceed with treatment, another appointment will be arranged with the orthodontist, so we can take pre-treatment records, which include models of your teeth, x-rays and photographs for a more detailed assessment and a final treatment plan. Range of treatments available to suit all budgets, from traditional fixed metal braces to invisible, removable aligners
  • 4.No long waiting list
  • 5.Interest free finance* available

Who we are

mydentist is the UK’s largest network of dental practices across the UK. Every year, we see more than 4 million patients and help thousands of people achieve their dream smiles with our teeth straightening treatments.

Unlike some companies we have years of experience in teeth straightening

At mydentist we have the UK’s largest network of clinicians who will listen to your individual smile goals and deliver high quality, safe, convenient and affordable care.

We only work with dental clinicians

As well as our network of dentists we also have a UK-wide network of qualified orthodontists, should you need more complex treatment. While all of the dentists you will see are trained to provide teeth straightening with clear aligners, some patients might need to see a specialist orthodontist if their teeth are very crowded. Whatever your needs you can relax in the knowledge that we can help.

Clinically safe

All mydentist patients have their treatment overseen by a UK registered dentist. We will make sure that your teeth and overall oral health are in good shape before we start teeth straightening and check in with you regularly to make sure that the treatment is progressing as planned. That means you can rest assured that at the end of treatment your teeth will look and feel great. All of our practices are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the UK’s healthcare governing body, and are subject to the strictest clinical protocols.
