With an initial consultation we will check your dental development, your bite and possible jaw growth irregularities.
We will then advise about treatment options, the best time to start and the costs involved.
ALWAYS LETTING YOU KNOW WHAT WE WILL DO BEFORE WE DO IT
Our treatment planning stage outlines your individualised orthodontic treatment plan making it easy to understand and follow. This will allow you to give us your informed consent before we start.
A SMILE YOU CAN SHOW OFF
Straight teeth and a beautiful smile radiates confidence and self esteem. We also always consider your facial structure and make sure we get the bite right by correctly matching the way that the top and bottom teeth come together.
