Your Orthodontic Journey
Your First Appointment
You’ve made the decision to get braces and now it’s on to your first appointment. Here’s a general overview of some of the things you can expect.
‘Now to create your signature smile’
How can we help you to smile with confidence?
We often hear from our patients that they have lived for years feeling self-conscious when smiling or talking and that they have been considering straightening their teeth for quite some time but were not quite ready to move forward to achieving what they thought about for so long. Soon after embarking on their orthodontic journey, we hear ‘I wish I had done it sooner’.
First impressions really do matter. A beautiful smile radiates confidence, projects an image of success, fulfilment and wellbeing.
If you have great teeth you are more likely to:
- Smile and act with more confidence and self-esteem
- Attract people more easily in professional and social settings
- Take good care of your teeth for life
- Show off your smile more readily
Are you suitable for orthodontic treatment?
Patients from all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment. It is a popular choice for adult patients as it has never been easier to achieve fabulous results with discreet almost invisible braces. For children, it is not only a fashion trend but an investment that contributes to giving them greater chance to succeed in later life.
We aim not only to straighten teeth but to improve dental health and function. Irregularities such as crooked, crowded, protruding teeth and poor alignment are common reasons to invest in orthodontic treatment.
We invite our patients to come in for an initial consultation where we discuss treatment needs, explore all orthodontic solutions suitable to you and discuss payment options.
If you are a little unsure if orthodontics is the right choice to help you achieve a beautiful smile, we invite you to come in for a complimentary chat with one of our qualified therapist where we can show you the different types of braces, photos of similar cases to yours and give you an idea of cost. However, a full thorough consultation with Dr Sidhu will be necessary to carry out a full treatment plan and determine the type of treatment you are suitable for.
