Patients seeking an aesthetic brace or those who do not qualify for NHS treatment can explore our private options.
Private orthodontic treatment is available to all patients regardless of age and provides patients with the opportunity to consider the broadest range of treatments using the latest treatment techniques.
Orthodontic treatment is available on the NHS for young people under 26 for FREE! NHS orthodontic treatment can only be provided to children who meet certain criteria.
NHS orthodontic treatment is available for all adults and is approved on a case-by-case basis if needed for health reasons.
Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get most from new patients.
The high demand and funding availability are the main reasons for a waiting list.
The National Health Service is responsible for funding all expenses of individuals qualified for orthodontic treatment.
Individuals not eligible for NHS treatment may seek private dental options instead.
Orthodontic treatment is not usually available on the NHS for adults. Most adults have private orthodontic treatment.
The ideal age to have NHS orthodontic braces is usually around 12 or 13, while a child's mouth and jaws are still growing, but sometimes it can be earlier or later. The prospect for improvement in an adult is more limited, treatment is likely to take longer, and there is a good possibility you will have to go private.
Unlike NHS treatment, private orthodontic treatment can resolve many problems with your teeth. It also offers a much more comprehensive range of treatments, including Invisalign and Clear Fixed Braces.
In Scotland, private orthodontic treatment is widely available. Fees for private orthodontic treatment are usually around £2,500 but can be much higher depending on which appliances are used to treat the patient.
One of the main benefits of private orthodontics is wait times. NHS braces, if you qualify, can see you waiting weeks/months even to confirm an appointment. Choosing private orthodontic treatment means you can be seen much quicker, with hardly a wait at all. You could even be seen in the same week.
We’ve tailored our private orthodontics services to best suit your needs. You can choose what type of braces you want based on your health assessment. You can also schedule more convenient appointments and get started on treatment faster than with NHS braces.
To help make the cost of your private orthodontic treatment more affordable, you can pay with an initial deposit followed by monthly payments. This payment option is interest-free.
