Patients who choose to have their private orthodontic treatment with us do so for a variety of reasons:
In addition, private patients have greater flexibility in arranging appointments, and are allocated more contact time.
In recent years we have seen an increasing number of adults in Sheffield seeking orthodontic treatment.
Some come by referral from their dentist, others contact The Orthodontic Clinic directly, having wanted to improve the appearance, functioning and oral hygiene of their teeth for years or motivated by a significant event in their life such as a wedding. After the braces are removed patients often go to their dentist for teeth whitening, to complete the new look.
Although adults are only treated privately, we find that patients are delighted with their decision to proceed with treatment when they see the results — There are very few investments we make the benefit of which will be appreciated every day by everyone who meets us.
This includes any X-rays, study models and photographs required for the diagnosis. Adult patients will attend two appointments and will receive a report confirming their diagnosis and outlining their treatment options and costs involved.

Invisalign treatment is more expensive. For adults it will usually cost from £3,000 for mild cases and up to £4,500 for the Full Invisalign products. It is not usually recommended for younger patients, however there is now a Teen product offered by Invisalign.
Patients pay an initial payment at the start of treatment- typically £600-£1,000 with conventional fixed braces or £2,200 with Invisalign. We will usually accept the remainder in instalments paid by standing order over the first 12-18 months of treatment.
We can accept the initial payment by credit card or debit card. Please note that there is a handling charge of 2% of the transaction value for payments by credit card.
