Private orthodontic care is available to all ages, it is never too late!

Appliances available for private patients

Fixed cosmetic brackets

Cosmetic braces consist of transparent brackets and provide a less obvious alternative to metal braces. They provide the same great results as metal braces and are one of our most affordable, less visible treatments, making them a popular choice for adults.

We use ‘Radiance’ brackets which are crystal clear, not cloudy like some ceramic brackets, this allows the natural color of the tooth to come through and make the braces almost disappear on your teeth.


We use Invisalign to treat a variety of mild orthodontic problems. Clear aligners such as Invisalign® use a series of custom-made removable plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into the correct position. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, day and night, and should only be removed for eating, brushing and contact sports.

Clear aligners

Clear aligners have no metal wires or brackets and as they are removable you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth as normal throughout your treatment. Clear aligners aren’t suitable for everyone though. We will be happy to discuss the different options available to you during your consultation.


Once the active phase of your treatment has been finished and braces removed, it will be necessary to wear a retainer. Retainers are designed to keep your teeth straight and can either be removable or fixed to the teeth. Now that your teeth are straight, if you do not wear your retainer your teeth are likely to drift towards their original positions.
