There are 3 different types of orthodontic treatments carried out within in the practice.
- Inman Aligner
- Clear Aligners
- Fixed Braces
The Inman Aligner
A removable appliance which uses springs and bands to align the front 4 teeth. This technique is traditionally faster than the other two options, with basic cases taking 12-16 weeks.
Cost: £950 – £1200 per arch
These are often known as “invisible braces”. This system is also removable and uses a series of Clear Aligners which are replaced ever 7-14 days. Each aligner is a slightly different shape, and guides the teeth into the ideal position. Treatment time is governed by the severity of the case and the number of aligners needed.
Cost: £1800 – £2500 single arch, £4000 for upper and lower arches (depending on how many aligners required).
This system uses fixed white brackets and white wires to move the teeth. This system offers the best control of tooth movements and is therefore more useful for complex cases and traditionally faster for standard cases. Treatment time is 6 to 9 months, with monthly appointments to make minor adjustments.
Cost: £2250 single arch, £3500 for upper and lower arches.
Once the orthodontic treatment has been completed and you are happy with the final results, the teeth will need to be retained so that they do not relapse back to their original position. Retention costs start at £100 per arch.
