If you’re thinking about straightening your teeth, you’re probably keen to know how much braces cost in the UK You may even be wondering if the cost of your braces will be covered by the NHS.
Here we’ll try to tackle these questions, so you can move one step closer to a straighter and more confident smile.
While we don’t offer NHS care at Sensu, you may be eligible for NHS orthodontic treatment elsewhere. To find out if you qualify for NHS treatment you would need to book an appointment with an NHS orthodontist who will determine your eligibility, based on your age and a set of measurements known as IOTN.
Patients aged 18 or over are unlikely to qualify for NHS orthodontic treatment. But, if you’re over 18 and your teeth are severely misaligned you may be eligible for treatment in the orthodontic department of a hospital.

Orthodontic treatment is an investment, and it’s one that you’ll benefit from for many years to come. We advise all of our patients to wear fixed and/or removable retainers to maintain their results after treatment.
There’s also more to straight teeth than a nice looking smile. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and healthy and they can function better too.
