Why choose an orthodontist and not a dentist to straighten
An orthodontist has spent three further years on a full-time specialist training programme studying and implementing methods to straighten teeth and as result is very highly skilled in creating your perfect smile. This means that you will receive the best treatment possible.
Typically how long does the treatment take?
Treatment times vary from about 6-24 months. Simple straightening can often be carried out as quickly as 6 months, particularly if it’s only the front 6 teeth. Timing depends on the severity of the problem and what the patient desires of the treatment. Our in house orthodontist will be able to advise you at your free consult the estimated treatment time.
Types of Braces
We realise that Orthodontic treatment is more expensive than other dental procedures and as such interest free payment plans are available – we will sit down with you and discuss what payment plan best suits your budget.
