We provide NHS funded orthodontic treatment to patients up to 18 years old.
Patients with very mild irregularities of the teeth may not qualify for NHS treatment, following a change in the regulations in April 2006. However, after your consultation, you will be informed
whether you can be accepted for NHS treatment.
Timing of treatment
Most orthodontic treatment is carried out when all the adult teeth are coming into the mouth. This is usually around or after 11 years of age.
However, your dentist, or the hospital consultant may send you to us at age 8 or 9, as a limited number of patients require early intervention to prevent problems later.
