Patients may also want teeth moving to help with the provision of crowns, bridges or implants.
Who can have treatment?
Private treatment is available for all patients of any age. Appointments can be made in any of Dr Bates’ sessions. This can make it easier and more convenient for you, which may allow treatment to finish sooner. We can also use more advanced wires and brackets, which may reduce treatment times and be more comfortable. Quicker treatment is healthier for your teeth and gums. Tooth-coloured brackets are normally used to make them less noticeable. We also have a special reduced cost option for under 18s – Monday afternoon and Thursday morning Ortho sessions only.

We can now provide completely invisible braces, using fixed lingual braces on the back of the teeth. This is not suitable for all cases, but is particularly good for aligning the “social six” teeth at the front. We also provide fixed tooth coloured virtually invisible braces
We are proud to be the only practice providing invisalign braces in Glossopdale. These are clear aligners that gently and invisibly move the teeth.
