Adult Orthodontic Treatments
Specialist Orthodontic Practices in Bathgate, Glenrothes and Airdrie
One in every ten patients at M-Brace is an adult and age is not necessarily a limiting factor for orthodontic treatment. With healthy gums and bone structure, teeth can be straightened at any age.
Now-a-days, adults are increasingly opting for orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth and improve their smile and dental health.
It is also important for many adults to look their best. For business and social reasons, orthodontic treatment can improve their confidence and their smile.
Now, with modern orthodontic treatments, using clear or virtually invisible braces and aligners it is also possible to straighten teeth in a very discrete and effective manner.
At M-Brace we are confident we can help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you always dreamed of.
NHS Orthodontic Treatment
Qualifying adults (with moderate to complex orthodontic problems) will be offered treatment under the NHS. All assessments for HNS treatment must be initiated and sent to us by your dentist.
During your consultation you will be assessed to determine whether you are eligible for treatment under the NHS. This is done using a set of measurements known as the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN). You can read more about IOTN here.
If approved by NHS for orthodontic treatment, fee-paying adult patients will be liable to a maximum NHS charge of currently £384. Patient exempt from NHS charge will not have to pay this charge.
NHS orthodontic treatment involve the use of traditional metal fixed braces and removable retainers.
Private Orthodontic Treatment
