Orthodontic treatment can help if:

  • You want to straighten crooked teeth.
  • You’re worried about bite abnormalities.
  • You want to improve the functionality of your teeth.

Are orthodontic treatments safe?

When performed by one of our expert dentists, orthodontics is certainly a safe procedure. The only thing to remember is that additional brushing is essential during treatment. That’s because the new brace makes it difficult to clean your teeth effectively by using normal brushing methods.
Did you know? Orthodontic brackets were invented by Edward Angle in 1915. The brackets were made from little hooks of metal attached to bands, which went around teeth.

Will orthodontic treatment hurt?

Your appliance may feel slightly unusual at first and cause some discomfort. However, this will soon wane as you become more used to it.

Can I afford orthodontic treatment?

As a cosmetic procedure, orthodontic treatment for adults is privately done and therefore not covered by the NHS. However, we believe everyone should be able to afford the dental care they need - that’s why we have a range of competitive prices and finance options available.
