Orthodontics For Children

At Masters Orthodontics Chester we offer orthodontic treatment to children and teenagers.
We offer an affordable alternative for children that either do not qualify for NHS treatment or for those
who wish to bypass the long NHS waiting list.

Children's Orthodontist

We can appreciate that NHS waiting lists for orthodontic treatment around the area can be frustratingly long.

We offer an affordable alternative for children that either do not qualify for NHS treatment or for those who wish to bypass the long NHS waiting list.

Unlike NHS orthodontics where children are usually seen every 10-15 minutes due to the large volume of patients, at Masters Orthodontics every appointment is at least 30 mins long. We feel that volume is inversely proportional to the quality and as such we do not rush our appointments to be able to see more patients.

Unlike NHS orthodontics, we do not require a referral from your general dentist for your child’s treatment. You can simply contact us directly via our website or by phoning us to book an appointment.

We also offer a wider choice of braces not covered by NHS orthodontics like Invisalign Teen, clear or lingual braces as well as 0% finance options and affordable payment plans.

First Phase Treatment

This is what we call preventative or interceptive orthodontics. The main objective for the orthodontist is either try to maintain or create space for your child’s teeth, correct any unwanted habits (like thumb sucking) and obtain a balanced and harmonic relationship between the upper and lower jaws.

This is usually carried out in small children, hence the importance of early orthodontic screening. Sometimes children will show early signs of discrepancies in the size and position of their jaws during growth and might therefore be candidates for early interceptive treatment.

Undertaking early orthodontic treatment may sometimes prevent extractions of permanent teeth later on in a second phase or even prevent the need for possible surgical repositioning of the jaws when older.

Second Phase Treatment

This is usually carried out when all the permanent teeth have fully erupted, usually around the age of 11-13. This phase can apply to those children that have had interceptive treatment previously and are in a monitoring stage or for those children that only require one single phase of treatment.

This usually involves full braces to improve your child’s overall dental alignment and bite in order to achieve the straightest and healthiest smile possible.

We are extremely grateful to Dr. Laurence Masters at “Masters orthodontics” in Chester who managed to fix our son’s orthodontic issues just in a year time. We were lucky to find him as at the age of 9 (our son’s age)... there is no orthodontic treatment offered by NHS and for many cases it is better the treatment to start as early as possible. Dr. Masters was extremely professional and kind in all our visits and we would highly recommend his services to anyone in need!Darinaread more

Before having braces treatment, I decided to do some research on orthodontics, and this is how I found dr Laurence Masters. As a specialist, he came highly recommended, and all his patients were delighted with his... services. I went for a consultation, and was indeed impressed! He is very friendly, smart and a master ( maybe this is where his name comes from?) when it comes to braces, teeth and co. I am so happy with the outcome, his experience and expertise delivered lovely results!!Thank you for my new healthy and beautiful smile!read more

Best orthodontist in the realm!! Honestly, I cannot praise dr Laurence enough! He was able to help me from the first appointment, explained how the system (jaw muscles teeth) connects, assessed me as a whole human and... addressed all the issues in a very professional and friendly manner. I had massive jaw and muscles pain, went to a couple of doctors and no one gave me any answers. Luckily, found him and he has impressive knowledge about everything, not just teeth! Plus, he is genuinely nice and cares a lot about his patients. If you’re looking for exceptional service then look no further, you’ve got your man here!! I couldn’t be happier with my treatment, and I know I’m the best of hands. Would definitely recommend 5 star is not enough. Thank you for everything, I will be forever grateful!read more

Had Invisalign treatment (top and bottom teeth) with Dr Masters from Feb '19 to March '20. Great professional and friendly service, options thoroughly explored and explained which was required as I had a tricky... situation with a remaining baby tooth to work around. Very pleased with the results, everything went smoothly in line with predicted time frames. Highly recommend Dr Masters to anybody else considering teeth straightening procedures.read more

I was very impressed with Dr Masters' approach, he took his time to explain the different treatment options for my particular dental problem. I have been suffering with jaw pain for several years and in 45 minutes Dr... Masters managed to explain to me what no one had been able to do for 20 years. I am very happy with the treatment and I no longer suffer from headaches and jaw pain. I highly recommend him.read more

I was recommended to see Laurence for my orthodontics and it's so worth it!I travel all the way from Oldham to Chester every 6 weeks for my treatment and wouldn't change that for anything.He is very professional and... extremely knowledgeable in this field, yet treats you just like a family friend and is somebody who I would certainly recommend to see, whatever your concerns may be, he is the man!I'm half way through my treatment, currently have fixed braces on and there has been so many positive changes so far... I can't wait till it's all complete, thanks again Laurence!read more

I have recently started Invisalign treatment with Dr. Masters and so far I am really happy with it. Laurence is knowledgable, friendly and very professional. He takes the time to explain procedures and has a true... passion for his work.He offers the latest 3D technology instead of the horrible mold they usually take of your bite. He uses a camera that instantly projects your teeth on a screen - amazing technology and no discomfort.With English not being my native language, I was so happy that I could explain everything to him in my own language as he speaks Spanish, Portuguese and English all fluently! I highly, highly recommend him!!read more
