Has anyone had braces through the NHS and gotten braces again privately? Could anyone tell me about the cost, if you get referred to another orthodontist and just how it works?

My daughter had top and bottom braces privately. She had them on for about 18 months and it cost £2200. This was in the north of England.

We’re her teeth extremely bad or average if you don’t mind me asking? It’s just cos I need braces and I’m trying to estimate the cost of mine. Btw during the 18 months did you have to pay for anything extra eg appointments or tightening of the braces or accessories such as elastics or the braces wax? Or was it a one off payment

It was all included, even the retainers that had to be worn after. We have since had to pay for new retainers because they are a bit flimsy and don't last forever. Her teeth were a bit crowded on the bottom and not a lot wrong on the top. She is proud of her teeth and really looks after them so I think across a lifetime it's a great investment.

Hi, I'm a Dentist.

Private orthodontics is as simple as looking for a dental practice that offers orthodontics privately.
You can just book an appointment with your regular dentist, and tell him/her that you would like private orthodontic treatment and then they would refer you to a Dentist or Orthodontist who provides orthodontic treatment privately.

The cost can vary, but you are looking at around 2-4k

Do patients go private after having NHS treatment? If they feel they teeth aren't straight or because of not wearing retainers.

There is a criteria for qualifying for NHS orthodontic treatment.

Generally speaking, if you are over 18 then you will have to pay privately.
If you are under 18, then an assessment will be carried out to see if you qualify.

Chances are, if you've already had orthodontic treatment it's unlikely that your occlusion/aesthetics will be bad enough for you to qualify again.
