It’s even more important to have a good oral health regime during treatment & we provide an oral hygiene pack & instruction to all private patients. Some patients do occasionally feel slight discomfort following the fitting of their brace but this usually passes quickly. We can usually carry out minor adjustments & repairs whilst you wait.

This all depends upon the severity of each case, but your orthodontist will be able to advise you at the time of assessment.
