If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Removable appliances

Some treatment offered at our department involves wearing removable braces. Although removable, these braces must be worn as prescribed in order to work effectively. Usually, we require you to wear these braces full time, only removing them for swimming, contact sports and eating.

Once these appliances have worked, patients then move on to fixed brace treatment to correct the position of individual teeth precisely.
