Orthodontics (Braces)

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry that deals with straightening crooked teeth and correcting “bite” problems by means of either fixed or removable braces. Starbeck Dental Centre is one of the few practices in the Harrogate area that provides this specialised treatment.

Most patients are treated by means of fixed (“train-track”) braces as these gives excellent and predictable results, even in patients with severe crowding or bite discrepancies. People with less severe crowding may be treated with removable clear braces (not available for NHS cases) if appropriate.

We enjoy a close relationship with the Consultant Orthodontist at Harrogate District Hospital and often refer our more complex cases to him for further assessment.

Orthodontics is an area of dentistry for which there is a great demand and not just from teenagers – many of our adult patients have undergone treatment and have been delighted with the results.

NHS or Private?

We are able to provide orthodontic treatment under the NHS although there are strict rules governing those eligible to receive treatment – the NHS will only fund the more severe cases. However we will happily provide a private quotation – it may not be as expensive as you think!
