What happens at my first visit?
Your Orthodontist will listen to your concerns and undertake a detailed clinical examination. If you already have an appointment arranged but have not received any forms, please complete our Orthodontic records may be taken to assist in the clinical examination or for analysing/planning the course of orthodontic care necessary.
Can I still play sports that require mouthguard?
Yes, there is no barrier to orthodontics if a mouthguard is required. Your Orthodontist can fit your teeth with a mouthguard to accommodate the braces also.
What will increase my treatment time?
Normal orthodontic treatment times can vary according to the initial orthodontic problem and your orthodontist will inform you of an approximate treatment time. Treatment can be delayed, however, if appointments are missed, brackets (or appliances) are broken or oral hygiene is poor.
