Treatment Process


Step 1: Book an appointment and Visit Us

Your first visit to us will be an initial consultation. Dr Flanagan will undertake a clinical exam of your teeth to allow us to assess your specific orthodontic needs. Dr Flanagan will 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 and simple monthly payment plan for treatment based on your Orthodontic needs.

Step 2: Records & Bond-Up

Once you have decided you’re ready for a life with straight teeth, we arrange your bond-up appointment to fit the brace. We will also take start of treatment records including an X-Ray and photos, 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 first take a digital scan of your teeth, which is used to plan your treatment, and fit your first set of clear aligners as soon as they are ready.


Step 3: Routine Appointments

Routine appointments are generally carried out every 4-7 weeks throughout the course of your treatment. These appointments allow us to assess your progress and make adjustments needed to the brace. Toward the end of treatment you may be seen more regularly every 1-3 weeks as the finer details of your smile is perfected.


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

We carry out two follow-up review appointments in the year after your treatment has ended. This is in order to monitor the teeth and to ensure that there is no unexpected movement of the teeth.
