We treat people of all ages, from age seven to seventy, sometimes several generations of the same family. As an orthodontic specialist, Dr Chatoo is able to treat a wide range of dental problems requiring braces and he offers a wide range of orthodontic systems.
Braces for children and young people
The majority of children who need braces start treatment from around the age of 11 or 12 and, for most, fixed braces are the most effective route. Treatment with aligners may also be possible and is a popular option. The treatment planning of all the braces is carried out digitally in the practice with lingual braces and aligners being custom-made. Sometimes children as young as seven can benefit from early intervention. This is explained in a blog here. We can see young people on a Saturday, by appointment, to avoid absences from school.
Of the systems on offer at LLOC, lingual braces are the most popular. They are fixed behind the teeth, so no-one knows you are wearing them. We can also provide treatment with conventional braces and offer aligners for patients who only need simple tooth-straightening. For patients requiring the input of more than one dental specialist, Asif will work with colleagues to provide a high level of inter-disciplinary care, in order to meet the patient’s goals.
Our clinic is warm and welcoming and our personal level of service helps patients feel comfortable and at ease throughout their orthodontic treatment. Our patients can live locally in London or travel from overseas. Anyone with a dental problem looking for an orthodontic solution is welcome here. If you have any questions, do check our FAQs.
