Treatment Process


Step 1: Book an appointment and Visit Us

Your first visit to us will be an initial consultation. Our Orthodontist will undertake a clinical exam of your teeth to allow us to assess your specific orthodontic needs. We then take time to discuss any orthodontic issues with your teeth, and in what ways treatment could improve your smile.

We can also outline the various treatment options suitable for you, and provide you with a specific quote for treatment based on your Orthodontic needs. The initial consultation is also a great opportunity to meet your Orthodontist and get a feel for what they are about.

Step 2: Records & Bond-Up

Once you have decided you want to start your journey toward straight teeth, we can arrange a bond-up appointment to fit the brace. We will also take records including an X-Ray and mould of your teeth, as well as providing you with everything you need to take care of your new brace.

If you decide Invisalign is the treatment for you, we will take the impressions, plan your treatment, and fit your first set of clear aligners as soon as they are ready.


Step 3: Routine Appointments

Routine appointments are carried out every 4-7 weeks throughout the course of your treatment. These appointments allow us to assess your progress and make any adjustments and wire changes as needed. They are also a good opportunity to answer any questions you might have about the progress of your treatment.


Step 4: De-bonding

Once your teeth are in their final position we remove the fixed appliance to reveal your new and improved smile. This is the exciting part!


Step 5: Aftercare

Less regular appointments are arranged in the first year after the main treatment has finished. This is in order to monitor the teeth and to ensure that there is no unexpected movement of the teeth.
