Private Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontics can be used to create beautiful smiles for people of any age. New technology has reduced treatment times and produced more inconspicuous appliances. There are many benefits to Orthodontics over other types of cosmetic dentistry:

It is non-invasive. No tooth tissue has to be removed as happens when teeth are prepared for crowns and veneers, for example.

There is no long-term commitment to maintaining and renewing dental prostheses such as crowns, bridges, veneers and implants.

It gives the most natural and aesthetic look.

Private treatment is available for both adults, of any age and children. You can refer yourself (here on the website), ask your dentist to refer you, or call us on 01904 633061.


When an appliance is first fitted it can feel a little strange and the unaccustomed pressure on the teeth can cause some discomfort or pain for the first few days. This is nothing unusual and will normally wear off quite quickly. Simple painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can be helpful. Should there be any irritation to the lips and cheeks your orthodontist can provide soft wax to place over the brace where it is sore to help relieve any problems until they settle.
This always depends on each individual case, but active treatment typically lasts between 18 to 24 months, and visits to the orthodontist are needed every four to six weeks.
You may not have enough room for all your permanent teeth. If so, you may need one or more permanent teeth taken out to make room. Every case is different and your orthodontist will tell you whether this is the case.
Any age! We successfully treat patients of all ages – it’s never too late.
