Your first appointment

At Angle House Orthodontics, we strive to provide you with an excellent experience of orthodontic treatment. For many of our patients, their first appointment is also their first experience of the orthodontic industry. So, during your initial consultation with us, we talk to you about orthodontic treatment, what it entails, and specifically how you could benefit from it. 

What is orthodontics?

Patients first come to us because they have either been thinking of straightening their teeth for some time and now decided to do something about it, or their dentist has advised them they could benefit from orthodontic treatment. 

Orthodontics usually involves the wearing of braces, either removable or fixed, occasionally the extraction of teeth, and very occasionally jaw surgery. The goal of orthodontic treatment is to achieve a beautifully straight smile for each patient, a smile that suits their overall facial profile and gives them renewed self-confidence.

Your first visit

At your first visit, one of our specialist orthodontists will assess your mouth and teeth using a small mouth mirror and a ruler. X-rays, photographs and moulds (impressions)  may also be taken. These measurements and records will help our orthodontists to determine which is the best treatment option for you. 

There will likely be one of four possible outcomes from your first visit:

  1. You are not yet ready for treatment, in which case you may need to see the orthodontist again when you are older.
  2. Your dental health is not good enough. This may be due to poor tooth brushing or you need fillings. You will then be seen again at a later date to review your dental health.
  3. You do not need treatment because the position of your teeth is very acceptable.
  4. You are ready for treatment and need to decide whether to go ahead. 

If you could benefit from orthodontic treatment and are ready to start, our orthodontists will explain:

  • the treatment options which will best suit you
  • the benefits and risks of orthodontic treatment
  • the length of time treatment will take
  • the cost of treatment
  • the commitment needed on your part if treatment is to be successful. 

At this point, you will be given the opportunity to ask any questions. If you would like to go ahead with the treatment, our orthodontists may ask for written consent. 

Your first visit

Fitting appointment

Your fitting appointment

Once you decide whether or not you would like to go ahead with treatment, we will use the information we have taken of your teeth and jaws during your first visit to custom-make your appliance. When it is ready, we’ll call you back in for your fitting appointment which is the day you get your braces on. 

At this appointment, we’ll also provide you with information on how to care for your braces so you can get the best results from your treatment. 

If you would like to start your journey to a straighter smile today, book your free consultation with the team of specialist orthodontists at Angle House Orthodontics.
