Do you know what orthodontics is all about? Find out here.
Orthodontics is a specialised kind of dentistry concerned with the development and management of irregularities and abnormalities of the teeth, jaws and face. Its aim is to produce a healthy, functional bite, creating greater resistance to disease and improving personal appearance. This contributes to mental and physical well-being.
Why orthodontics ?
Orthodontics makes your teeth easier to clean, which means there is less risk of decay or gum disease (gingivitis). It will also ensure your teeth meet together properly, which means there is less stress on your jaw joint and surrounding muscles. This in turn can help relieve regular problems such as headaches, migraines and neck, back or shoulder pain.

Got a question about orthodontics? We’ve got the answers.
What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry that focuses on the development and management of irregularities and abnormalities affecting the teeth, jaws and face.

Does orthodontic treatment hurt?
No, orthodontic treatment doesn’t hurt. Patients do experience mild discomfort at certain times during their treatment, but this can be treated with over-the-counter pain relief.
How much does orthodontic treatment cost?
Every patient has their own set of teeth which requires different treatment. This means treatment costs vary, but we will give you a comprehensive quote for treatment at your free consultation.
Do you offer help with finance?
Yes, we have finance options available to help you cover the cost of treatment. We will be happy to discuss this further with you at your free consultation.
Will braces interfere with my lifestyle?
No, these days there are so many options for orthodontic appliances that it is highly unlikely treatment will affect your lifestyle. At NEO Orthodontics we have discreet treatment options, such as clear braces, as well as Invisalign aligners which you can remove during treatment.
How effective is Invisalign?
Very! In fact, at NEO Orthodontics, Invisalign is one of our most preferred treatment options, both by us as specialist orthodontists and by our patients. It gets great results but people don’t realise you’re having treatment because the aligners are virtually invisible.
Do you treat adult patients?
Absolutely! We have just as many adult patients, if not more, as we do children and teenagers. With the significant advances that have occurred in the orthodontic industry, treatment is suitable – and effective - for patients of all ages.
Do you offer NHS treatment?
Yes we do, but patients must qualify under the IOTN. We currently have a waiting lists for NHS treatment at our practices, however some practices have longer wait lists than others. To find out more about NHS treatments and wait lists, please contact your nearest practice and speak to a dedicated Treatment Co-ordinator.
