Private Orthodontic Treatment in London
At Orthodontic Care, we treat children, teens and adults for orthodontic problems. Some of our patients present to us with major orthodontic problems affecting both their teeth and jaws – these are known as malocclusions or bad bites.
Many of our other patients simply need their teeth straightened. In some cases, only the front six teeth may require treatment; in other cases, to achieve a beautifully aligned smile, more significant tooth movement may be required.
No matter what extent of orthodontic treatment you require, you can receive it here at Orthodontic Care as a private patient. We offer competitive treatment fees and have payment plans in place to help with the cost of treatment.
Private Treatment Costs
Private orthodontic treatment can be undertaken for adults and children. The principal advantages are that there is greater choice of appliance types, including clear braces, and there is greater flexibility in booking appointment times. Children who do not qualify for NHS treatment can be seen as private patients. We do not require a referral letter from your dentist. If you would like to be seen on a private basis, just ring and arrange a consultation.
Orthognathic surgery is a form of surgery used to align malpositioned jaw bones. It can be used to reposition the upper and lower jaw bones for a number of reasons:
The cosmetic correction of lower jaw retrusion or protrusion
For the correction of asymmetry of the chin point
To improve chewing function where there is poor contact between the upper and lower teeth
To improve the contact between the lips
To improve the stability of orthodontic treatment
To help reduce a double chin due to lower jaw retrusion
To improve obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring problems
Orthognathic Jaw Aligning Surgery
Orthognathic surgery is commonly undertaken in combination with orthodontic treatment. A phase of orthodontic treatment is necessary before surgery in order to place the teeth into the correct position with respect to the individual jaw bones so that when the jaw position has been corrected the teeth meet normally. This also helps to improve the stability of surgical results. A short phase of orthodontic treatment is often necessary following surgery in order to fine-tune the biting relationship. At the London Specialist Orthodontic Practice we are highly skilled at performing this type of treatment. We work with a group of world class surgeons from UCLH NHS Foundation Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in order to provide the highest quality of patient care. We are BUPA accredited.
