Your orthodontic assessment
During your initial consultation, we will take time to listen to your concerns and understand what you hope to achieve from any orthodontic treatment. We will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth, jaws and face. This is usually followed by photographs, radiographs (x-ray) and impressions (moulds) of your teeth.
Your orthodontic needs are unique and these records help us to diagnose any underlying problems and formulate a comprehensive treatment plan.
In some cases, we may need to invite you for a second appointment so that we can consider the records that have been taken and decide upon a treatment plan. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have and discuss the various payment options.
We ask that you set aside approximately one hour for this initial visit, as we believe that it is important for you to have a clear understanding of all aspects of your proposed treatment.
Once all the diagnostic information has been taken, the treatment plan has been agreed, we will then be ready to place the braces.
Before a brace is fitted, we will ask you to see our hygienist for professional cleaning of your teeth and gums.
A fixed brace consists of several brackets (which will either be metal or ceramic, which are gently bonded to the teeth). The brackets are connected by a thin piece of wire called archwire. Fixed braces are normally fitted at one appointment.
It is also sometimes possible to have the brackets placed on the inner side of the teeth (lingual). These are virtually invisible.
