We think the first time you come and see us is very important. We therefore make sure we have enough time to discuss orthodontics and your needs with you.
Because we allow time to give you the attention you need it may take time to get an initial appointment. Fortunately orthodontic treatment is usually not something that must be undertaken straight away. Of course if your dentist advises that you need to be seen at short notice we will, of course, accommodate you.
At the first appointment we will provide an assessment with treatment options and
be able to give an outline of the treatment fees.
You may initially be placed on our recall list so we can monitor the growth and development until the appropriate time to commence treatment. You should maintain routine check-ups with your dentist while on orthodontic recall.
For those who are at the stage where treatment is appropriate:
- Record collection:
We will collect dental photographs, moulds of the teeth and x-rays. Following the “Records”
appointment will be the “Treatment Explanation” visit. Your details as collected at the “Records” appointment will have been analysed and the treatment options are now discussed.
Appointments for the fitting of braces and removal of any required teeth, should you elect to proceed with treatment, are made at, or following, the “Treatment Explanation” appointment.
