It is thought that around 10% of young people could benefit from early orthodontic treatment. And it’s not just misaligned teeth that are the problem.
Facial irregularities, bad bite and complex jaw issues are just some of the typical results of a failure to address orthodontic problems early.
Here in the UK, long NHS waiting lists and a system that refuses treatment to the vast majority of young patients only make the need for early intervention all the more pressing.
We recommend an initial consultation to rule out problems at around age seven and it’s usually best to begin treatment before your child becomes a teenager.
PUT THEM FIRST
If you needed orthodontic treatment, you’d probably want Invisalign – one of the most comfortable, discreet and effective solutions available. You can now get the same for your youngsters, in the form of Invisalign First clear aligners for children.
Thanks to the skills and experience of early years orthodontist Neil Counihan, Canon House is one of the area’s few clinics to offer Invisalign treatment to young people and teens. As a Platinum provider, we’re also among the top national Invisalign teams.
When it comes to treating young people and teens, there are many reasons why Invisalign is the treatment of choice. The revolutionary clear aligner is effective at treating overcrowding, misalignment, overbite and many of the other common orthodontic problems faced by young people.
It’s also one of the most discreet treatments available – so it’s perfect for treating young people and teens during the most awkward and image-conscious phases of life.
At Canon House, we provide complete early orthodontic services – including many you won’t find on the NHS.
Our team is led by US-trained Neil Counihan. His facial-driven approach to children’s orthodontics takes facial anatomy when planning treatment.
The approach looks at the jawbone and surrounding facial structure to ensure the natural development of functioning, healthy smiles.
The approach, as well as the use of discreet straighteners like Invisalign and lingual braces, allow children and teenagers to keep their head held high in the playground at a time when image is everything.

5 star treatment from Mark Hughes and the team. Made going to the dentist a pleasant experience. I was treated like an individual throughout and also had not only the gentlest but best hygiene treatment. I would always recommend their services.
I had an amazing experience from start to finish at Canon House Clinic.I was so nervous but I absolutely love my smile now and the treatment coordinator Liz was brilliant, comforting me throughout my whole journey. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience and I can’t wait to come back for more whitening gels and a coffee!
2 of my 3 daughters attend this wonderful clinic for dental treatment and ceramic braces, one of which had her first course of braces on at age 9 under their early intervention dentist. The staff are brilliant with the children, they put them at ease and are amazing. We are always made to feel welcome and we can’t rate the care higher. We travel an hour to the clinic every 6 weeks and would drive much further if needed, as this level of care is outstanding, it outweighs the 2hr round trip. Booking the initial assessment was the best thing we did for our girls and they are going to have beautiful smiles and confidence in future dental care thanks to canon house clinic.
There just aren’t adequate words to describe just how grateful I am to Dr Mark Hughes and the team at Canon House. Dr Hughes has transformed my smile and has shown patience and understanding the whole way through the process. He is simply outstanding in his field and his workmanship, I’m only sorry I wasn’t recommended to visit him sooner in life. A visit to the dentist is now a pleasure and I look forward to a warm reception every time. I highly recommend Dr Hughes and his team without any hesitation.
I had such an amazing experience with Dr Shiv & Chloe. Throughout the last 6 months, they addressed all of my needs and ensured I was fully aware of the process and supported. Dr Shiv was very accommodating with my asking questions, whether that be me messaging his professional business Instagram out of hours or calling the clinic. I have already recommended Dr Shiv & Chloe to family members and friends. So glad I decided to go with Canon House Clinic.
