What an Orthodontic Consultation Involves

If you are thinking of straightening your teeth, you will need an orthodontic consultation. There are many factors to consider when planning treatment with braces.

For example,

  • the stage of development of the teeth
  • the proportion of the jaws to each other and to the rest of the face
  • the position of the teeth within the jaws
  • the degree or the extent of the crowding
  • the maturity and level of co-operation of the patient

In order for us to assess the nature of the problem and to plan the appropriate treatment for you, or your child, we need to:

  • examine the mouth and study the proportions of the face
  • take photographs of the mouth and face
  • make models of the teeth
  • analyse X-rays of the teeth and the head

Only after this examination and analysis, can we consider the methods of treatment and prepare a written treatment plan appropriate for the condition.

At our orthodontic consultation, we will discuss our treatment plan with both the patient and all decision makers (e.g. in the case of children, both parents will be invited to the consultation). The fees for the treatment we recommend will also be explained and listed at this consultation.

The fee we charge for our orthodontic consultation ($235) is for examination, analysis and planning of the treatment. The fee for an extra-oral panoramic X-ray is $80. Only with X-rays and models to analyse, can we give you details of treatment and fees.
