How to handle braces emergencies
Costs and finance
We understand that the cost of orthodontic treatment can a big concern when considering treatment, which is why we offer a range of financing options to help make your treatment more affordable than ever.
What does orthodontic treatment cost?
The cost of treatment depends on many factors such as the severity of the problem, the chosen treatment type, and your specific needs. There is no flat fee for orthodontic treatment; your Specialist Orthodontist will discuss the costs of your specific treatment plan during your initial assessment.
Payment plans for all budgets
We know the importance of having treatment on a tight budget. We want to ensure that finances don’t get in the way of you enjoying the smile you deserve. We offer flexible payment plans that help to bring your treatment within reach of any budget. Speak to our Treatment Coordinator about the costs involved and the payment plans available for you.
We are proud to be an NHS provider for orthodontic care in our local areas, and work closely with the relevant authorities to offer access for those needing treatment and advice free at the point of service.
Every child under the age of 18 is entitled to an NHS orthodontic examination by a Specialist Orthodontist, but not all children will qualify for treatment. If you are seeking NHS treatment for your child, you should first get a referral from your dentist.
In case NHS coverage is not an option, private options are always available to you. Talk with one of our friendly team members today to learn more about the costs associated with treatment.
