There are many advantages of private treatment here at the Suffolk Orthodontic Practice. Treatment is carried out using state of the art appliances most of which are not available for NHS patients. The treatment is carried out by experienced operators under the supervision of the orthodontist who is also the consultant at the local hospital. Additionally there is no restriction with availability of appointment times within the practice opening hours. The choice of interest free finance options also makes private orthodontic treatment now more affordable than ever and allows you to spread the cost of this treatment.
The price of your treatment is fully-inclusive and includes all your active treatment and one year’s post-treatment follow-up. The cost also includes two sets of retainers for the retention phase. The cost will vary according to the complexity of your case and the fees listed below provide a guide to the initial fee and options available to you.
