Your first consultation appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of the possible treatment options. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite the process, we will also take diagnostic records on your consultation visit. The records consist of X-rays, photographs and alginate impressions for study models and these are necessary for developing your customized treatment plan.
Our dentists will then carry out detailed analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyse each patient’s specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.
During the initial examination, we will address any questions you have on your orthodontic treatment. We will also discuss treatment options, time frames and other issues. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take.
If you have any previous records (X-rays, models, photographs) taken, do bring them along during your consultation visit.
