The first visit is a half hour consultation in which our orthodontists will discuss your concerns and motivations for attending the practice.
They will perform an evaluation of your teeth and occlusion (bite) and then outline potential treatment options that could be used to address your individual problems and concerns. This appointment also serves as an introduction to orthodontic treatment and provides ample time for you to ask questions. Our orthodontists will also discuss the costs of treatment and the expected duration of any recommended treatment.
Following the first visit many patients will proceed to record collection (see below) and treatment planning if they are at the appropriate age and developmental stage to commence their treatment. Others will not be ready to commence treatment for a variety of reasons and will be placed on our recall program.
Our recall program is a free surveillance service which allows us to monitor aspects of dental development and growth, as well as track the progression of specific problems or concerns.
