Care of Removable Braces
Follow our advice for looking after your removable brace to minimise breakage or loss
Take the brace out when you play any contact sport and when brushing your teeth. Leave the brace in a secure container (which has your name and address on it) whenever you remove it from your mouth. You may be charged if it is lost.
NHS charges are:
- Removable brace £80.70, each
- Functional £161.40
- Retainers £80.70, each
Keep your teeth and brace very clean. Brush both carefully after every meal. To ensure the good health of your teeth and gums, please reduce the amount of sugar that you eat and drink. If the brace is broken or cannot be worn for any reason, please contact the surgery. Do not wait for the next appointment. Please bring any dental casts/models along to the emergency appointment.
