Due to COVID19 we are currently running at 50% capacity, so there are some treatments we are unable to book still, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause patients.  We are, unfortunately, unable to see any private assessments or fittings (NHS & private) at this time

The stages of treatment

After the first visit

We will see you again and send you out a recall letter if it is too early to do anything.  Usually this is at 6 months, 1 year or 18 months after the first visit.

If you decide not to do braces we will not arrange to see you again but you can always contact us directly if you change your mind, or even if your teeth move and get worse.

If you decide on braces then sometimes you need teeth removing before the brace is put on.  At the first visit we will give you a letter that you should take to your dentist; your dentist will remove the teeth for you, if necessary.  We will attempt to correct your teeth with the removal of as few teeth as possible, often none, sometimes one or two, occasionally four.

If you do need teeth removing, we will book you an appointment here for the brace fitting and you should arrange with your dentist to have those teeth requested,  removed before you see us.  We do like to see you around 1-2 weeks after the teeth have been removed, so if possible try to co-ordinate the appointments accordingly.  We are unable to fit the brace until the teeth have been removed, so if you can't get an appointment with your dentist before the brace fitting, call us and we can move it to a later date.

If you don’t need any teeth removing then all you have to do is wait for the brace fitting appointment.  Currently, this is is around 6-9 months after your consultation or review appointment.

 Next Stage

Ask your dentist to arrange a referral if you are aged under 18.

We are unable to accept private patients at this moment in time, due to COVID19 and the back-log of NHS patients we have still.
