Consultations are by appointment and can be arranged directly with us or via a referral from your dentist. During your initial consultation we would take a medical history and the orthodontist will listen to what aspects of your smile you wish to change as well as perform a clinical examination of your mouth and teeth. We may take study models and intra oral photographs for record keeping. We may even take a radiograph should it be necessary. The orthodontist will discuss suitability for treatment and give a broad overview of treatment options.
Should you be interested in the treatment options discussed, we would then schedule a follow up appointment to discuss final treatment plans in detail, with your cast study models, radiographs and photographs. Subsequently a clinical report will be sent to both you and your dentist outlining the treatment plan.
