Orthodontic Treatment

How do I go about getting orthodontic treatment?

 

The first thing to do is to go along to your own dentist and get his or her advice.  Your dentist will know whether you need treatment and make the necessary arrangements.

 

How much does it cost?

 

You will only be entitled to treatment under the NHS if your condition is serious.  

Minor problems may be classed as cosmetic and would therefore be charged privately.

 

National Health treatment is free for children up to the age of 18 and students up to the age of 19 as long as there is a clinical need.  Other people entitled to free treatment are patients on a low income, pregnant women and nursing mothers.  Everyone else has to pay the NHS charges.  There is no charge for treatment in hospital departments.

Orthodontists specialise in moving and straightening teeth by using orthodontic
appliances, such as braces. They help improve the function and health of your teeth
and gums by giving you an even bite on all your teeth.
