Treatment for private patients
Many of our patients come to us via a referral from their dentist, but you can also make your own appointment with our team at Bishops Stortford Orthodontics to inquire about treatment.
In fact, we invite all our adult patients to have a free consultation with us before embarking on your orthodontic treatment journey. This enables you to find out which orthodontic treatment you can most benefit from, how long treatment will take as well as how much it will cost.
Every patient’s orthodontic needs are different, which is why we provide you with a bespoke treatment plan specific to your requirements.
Your first appointment
After calling to make an appointment, we will send you a Welcome Practice pack. This is an introduction to Bishops Stortford Orthodontics, including information on the different treatment services we provide.
At your first appointment, you will be met by our friendly Treatment Coordinator. At this time, you will have the opportunity to discuss your expectations of treatment and your options, get a feel for the practice and meet some of the team who will be looking after you.
Once your orthodontic appliance has been fitted we ask you to come in for regular checks so we can see how well your teeth are moving into position. This is when we'll tighten your braces or present you with a new set of aligners, depending on the type of treatment you are undergoing.
When your teeth have moved into their new position and your appliance has been removed, we'll fit you with a retainer. This helps to keep your teeth straight. Your retainer should be worn both day and night immediately after treatment and then just at night. We'll advise you on this at your appointment.
Financing your treatment
We understand orthodontics can be expensive which is why we have payment plans in place to help you finance your treatment. The cost of your treatment will depend on the type you receive, but could range in price from £3,000 - £4,200.
This cost is divided into an initial deposit, with the remaining balance to be paid by way of a monthly standing order over either 12 or 18 months. Payment can be made by cheque, cash, debit card or credit card. Examination costs are payable at the examination appointment.
