STAGE 4: NHS waiting list
If you qualify for treatment under the NHS, you will be placed on the waiting list. NHS treatment is very popular, and we can only treat a limited number of NHS patients each year. For the most recent waiting list time, please ask our staff members.
Let us know if you would like to begin your orthodontic treatment immediately, and we can speak with you about our private treatment options. This way, we can also give you access to a wider range of treatment options.
STAGE 5: Treatment begins
It typically takes 18 to 24 months for your treatment to produce the desired result. However, treatment times might vary because every patient has different orthodontic needs. Therefore, we will need to see you every 6 to 8 weeks throughout your treatment to track your progress.
After straightening your teeth, we’ll remove your braces and give you retainers that will hold your newly straightened teeth in place. We call this phase the retention phase, and it is an integral part of your treatment!
