At your initial consultation we will assess your orthodontic needs and explain the treatment options available to you, also answering any questions that you may have.
Following this appointment we will provide you with a personalised treatment plan, explaining the treatment we will carry out and what the costs will be. If you have been referred to us by your dentist we will also send a copy of the treatment plan to them and keep them fully informed of your progress.
Once treatment is complete, your dentist will monitor the teeth we have treated at your regular oral health examinations.
We believe that orthodontic treatment is very much a partnership between us and you. We will ensure that you are given the best advice for both what we can treat and how best to treat it and once treatment starts we will need to work together to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
During your treatment we need your help to ensure you maintain your oral hygiene routine; continuing to brush and floss your teeth while wearing braces is essential as plaque and bacteria can quickly build up if food gets caught in your braces. A good oral hygiene routine will help keep this at bay and ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy while we create that great new smile!
Our dental hygiene services are available to anyone, you don't need to be considering orthodontic treatment.
We know that many patients can be nervous about visiting the dentist. This is often caused by a bad experience in childhood, perhaps with a dentist who was not used to working with children. Typically Orthodontic treatment is pain free but braces can be a little uncomfortable from time to time.
At The Orthodontic Practice, we have plenty of experience of working with nervous patients and will do everything possible to support you through your treatment.
We understand that sometimes our patients may experience problems during their orthodontic treatment, if you have had an accident with you brace or are experiencing pain it is important that you contact the practice as soon as possible.
We have also provided information and help for some of the more common orthodontic problems.
