FAQs

What are the benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?
  • A good appearance and a great smile. Research shows this is of psychological and social benefit by improving self-esteem and confidence.
  • Improved “cleanability” of teeth and reduced risk of cavities and gum disease that can lead eventually to tooth decay / loss.
  • Better tooth relationships allow effective chewing, digestion and speech.
  • Reduced chance of chipping or breaking protruding front teeth.
  • Correcting improper jaw relationships can reduce stress on chewing muscle and jaw joints.
Can anyone be treated?

Age is no barrier to Orthodontic Treatment. Treatment can be successful at any age, and increasing number of patients are adult.

How long will Treatment Last?

Length of treatment depends on severity of the original problem and may take anything from six months to two and a half years. Most people are treated within 1 to 2 years.

How Many Visits?

It is usually necessary to adjust any Orthodontic appliance at regular intervals, usually every 6 – 8 weeks.

Will It Hurt?

It is not at all painful to have the braces fitted, although the appliances may feel strange to begin with, and can cause some discomfort. This usually subsides within a few days.

How Much Will It Cost?

Children under the age of 18 years can often be treated under the NHS. However NHS treatment is offered under the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need ( IOTN) . Each child under 18 is assessed to see if they qualify under this index.

The fees for Independent and Private treatment can vary from £ 1000 to £ 5000 dependent on the type of appliance and the complexity of the treatment.

All fees can be spread over the length of the treatment on an interest free basis.
