The benefits of early Orthotropic treatment

icon

Natural

Malocclusion is treated naturally by guiding the growth of the facial bones over time.

icon

Avoid extractions

The treatment creates more space for the teeth and tongue meaning extractions can be avoided altogether.

icon

Correct posture

The main focus of this approach is to correct a patients oral and head posture.

Non-surgical

We have transformed the lives of many patients who had previously been told surgery was their only option.

Frequently asked questions

Have other questions? Get in touch with our team.

Is Orthotropics treatment hard to do?

plusminus
Yes, this treatment is only for committed individuals. If we are asking your child to change their posture, then we are asking them to change themselves. This will take time, commitment and full parental support.

Is Orthotropics treatment expensive?

plusminus
It is about twice as expensive as traditional orthodontics, however it takes about 10 times as much clinical time for the clinician, and many expensive braces are used. Typically treatment costs £5,200 to £12,500.

Will we regret Orthotropics treatment?

plusminus
Although some children stop treatment because they do not have the necessary commitment very few fail to gain some advantage. The treatment is fail safe and there is still time to resort to more traditional methods that are then easier due to the advantage gained.
Our experience shows us that families rarely regret the treatment, despite the commitment it requires. We have often been asked to treat siblings of patients that did not comply, as parents can see where the failure lies. Please see our testimonials and gallery to see what other parents have said.

How long does Orthotropics treatment take?

plusminus
The active treatment takes between 14 months and 2 years. After this you enter the active retention phase, wearing the brace at night only, with swallowing and postural exercise. As this treatment guides growth, a brace at night and exercise should continue until the end of growth at 14 for girls and 16 for boys.

Does Orthotropics treatment hurt?

plusminus
It should never hurt but can be uncomfortable and inconvenient even hurting if worn incorrectly. However, it is not as painful as conventional railway tracks in the teenage years and unlike “fixed” appliances Orthotropic® appliances hardly show.
