What are the costs of private treatment?
Orthodontic treatment generally involves 12-18 months of treatment. The cost for orthodontics includes all the treatment, repair of breakages (to an acceptable limit), provision of retainers and their supervision for one year after appliance removal. Treatment costs do not include the cost of any treatment provided by your family dentist before, during or after orthodontics.
A consultation generally costs £80 which does not include the cost of radiographs (x–rays), study models and photographs. If your family dentist has recently taken radiographs, you are encouraged to bring these to the consultation. The cost of full records (x–rays, models and photos) is £80 and these will be required to finalise your treatment plan.
The cost of comprehensive orthodontic treatment for children ranges from £1000 to £1600. For adults the range of comprehensive treatment varies from £2500 to £3500.
Fees are payable in increments during the treatment period until the appliances are removed. All fees will be fully explained before treatment is started.
