Teeth Straightening

Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten teeth and improve your smile and dental health and here at Westdale Dental we offer a range of treatment options for both adults and children.

Types of braces

Fixed Braces in Nottingham

Fixed Braces are the most common type of brace, they are small brackets bonded to each tooth and linked together by a thin arch wire and held in place by elastic rings. The arch wire is adjusted at regular intervals which straightens the teeth into the correct position of the jaw.

There are two options for fixed braces, traditional stainless-steel metal brackets or ceramic tooth coloured brackets

Fixed Dental Braces

A lovely smile can lift your self-confidence and have a positive impact on your overall wellbeing. Helping your child to achieve a lovely natural smile whilst they are young can really help boost their self-esteem which will help them in the future.

Children’s Orthodontic Treatment

NHS Orthodontic Treatment

In April 2006 the Department of Health introduced strict new guidelines to determine a patient’s eligibility to undergo NHS orthodontic treatment.

Cases are now assessed according to the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN).

The score your child receives on this index will determine whether he/she is eligible for treatment on the NHS.

An orthodontic consultation for under 18’s is £45.

Upper and lower orthodontic treatment costs £2150 for metal brackets and £2450 for tooth coloured brackets.
