NHS refusing to fund children’s braces

But at Carisbrook, we have a very special offer to slash orthodontics cost

An investigation has found that at least 20,000 youngsters a year are being denied the corrective orthodontic’s treatment they need. Some families have been incorrectly advised that their children do not qualify for free treatment. While others are told they will have to wait for up to six years to have braces fitted. This puts intense pressure on parents who want to correct their children’s teeth. The orthodontics cost of ‘going private’ the families are told, can be up to £6000.

 

However, the good news is that ‘going private’ doesn’t have to cost anywhere near that figure, because Carisbrook Dental, one of the North West’s leading private dental practices, now has a very special offer that slashes orthodontics cost to below £2000!

 

According to the NHS, the ideal age to have braces fitted is 12 or 13 and if a child’s regular dentist believes that they might need a brace then they should refer them to an orthodontist. The General Dental Council, however, have admitted that some orthodontists are deliberately preventing children from accessing braces on the NHS so they can make more money.

 

On its website the NHS admits that there can be a long waiting list, but it says, “If you don’t want to wait for treatment, you may choose to have private treatment.” Although it is widely available, they say that fees can be as high as £6000.

 

At Carisbrook we agree that there is no need to wait for orthodontic’s treatment and we can provide it with virtually no waiting time. In addition though our costs are nowhere those quoted and thanks to our Special Children’s Orthodontics Offer it will cost less than £2000!

 

Even better, at Carisbrook we offer a FREE CONSULTATION for all new patients. We will gladly examine a child’s teeth free of charge and if we think they qualify for free NHS orthodontic’s treatment we will advise parents to ask their regular dentist to refer them to an NHS orthodontist.

 

If, however, they prefer our own highly skilled orthodontic’s team to provide the treatment, then our Special Savings on Children’s Orthodontics will slash the orthodontics cost.

 

For all youngsters under the age of 18 our Special Orthodontic’s Offer costs only £1995.  This covers everything and it includes:

 

  • A full examination by our specialist dental orthodontist team.
  • A one-to-one discussion on the treatment recommended.
  • A personalised programme of fixed brace treatment using the ‘gold standard’ of orthodontics braces. These are custom-made, virtually invisible and supremely comfortable.
  • A complete course of dental orthodontics treatment, including regular examinations and reviews.
  • Bespoke removable retainers at the end of the treatment period.

 

To make the orthodontists cost even more affordable, you can spread your payments with an initial deposit of just £495, followed by twelve monthly payments of £125.  No interest to pay!
