During the latest lockdown we will remain open and patients should keep their appointments as arranged. You should not attend if it’s not safe for you to do so, for example if you have symptoms of Covid-19, are waiting to receive test results, or have been asked to self-isolate. If you are unable to attend, please ring us in advance rather than not attend, so we can reallocate your appointment time.
All at Sunlight Orthodontics would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst we’ve not been able to see you. We can assure you that we are fully compliant with all Covid-19 safe practice guidelines.
MORE ADULTS SEEK BRACES...
(Posted on 18/08/16)
Figures released by the British Orthodontic Society (BOS) reveal the rising number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment in the UK.
A new survey, conducted in June 2016, and designed to gather data about adult orthodontics in the UK, was sent to orthodontists working in high street practices.
Survey findings reveal:
- 75% of respondents are seeing an increase in adult treatment.
- Key drivers for treatment appear to be heightened awareness of adult orthodontics alongside rising expectations on how treatment can positively impact on both appearance and well-being.
- Of adult patients treated: 66% of patients are 26-40 year olds and 23% are 41 or over. More than 10% are 18-25
Orthodontics isn't simply about straight teeth but can make a difference to your appearance, your bite and overall health. It's a speciality that blends art and science.
To meet the rising demand for adult orthodontics BOS recently launched The BOS Guide: Orthodontics for Adults - designed for patients to read before they see a clinician. It covers all aspects of orthodontic decision-making: why, how, where and who. Each section has key points or tips which guide the patient towards getting the information they need to make the right choice for them.

Alison Murray, President of the British Orthodontic Society, says:
"We welcome the growth of interest in orthodontic treatment. Many adults who have undergone orthodontic treatment report higher levels of self-esteem and their quality of life is often significantly improved."
