COVID UPDATE - WE ARE OPEN

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.

Quality Comes First

Quality Comes First

People rate orthodontics quality first

Nearly one fifth (19%) of the British public believes they would benefit from orthodontic treatment, according to a survey.

The research, carried out by Ipsos MORI and commissioned by the British Lingual Orthodontic Society (BLOS), also found that 30% of people are aware of the lingual technique.

Of those who knew of lingual orthodontics, most said they had learned of it from family, friends or colleagues (44%). And 12% said the treatment had been recommended by a dentist or orthodontist.

Lingual braces fit behind the teeth, where they are completely hidden

But only 2% of those interviewed said they became aware of the technique as a result of news about celebrities, such as Myleene Klass, undergoing such treatment.

When asked what mattered most when choosing treatment, quality was rated as the most important aspect (90%), followed by cost (85%) and access to a specialist locally (82%). Treatment time was rated last at 73%.

The survey also asked some general questions about attitudes to teeth and 37% of respondents said they cared more about their teeth today than they had 10 years ago. And 38% of those who cared more said this was because of the rise in cosmetic dentistry.

Chairman of the BLOS Paul Ward said: “These findings demonstrate that the British public take an informed approach to orthodontic treatment.”
