NHS Orthodontics for children.
NHS care is exclusively for children and teenagers under 18 years of age who qualify for treatment for dental health reasons such as severe crowding or protrusion of the teeth. Anyone under 18 is eligible for an NHS consultation to determine if they qualify. If you would like a consultation, ask your dentist to refer you to us.
Each year we are given a limited amount of NHS funding to treat children. Those who qualify for treatment may have to join a waiting list before treatment can begin.
NHS treatment is carried out by our team of specialist orthodontists and orthodontic therapists. Modern metal fixed braces with coloured bands are generally used to achieve an ideal smile.
