TO EXPECT?

Orthodontics | Your Journey

Every journey begins with a single step and the first step to a brand new smile is to book an appointment with us. Below is a brief outline of the steps involved in transforming your smile.

YOUR MEDLAND JOURNEY

From start to finish, we’ll take care of you.

Understand the steps you will take when visiting Medland Orthodontics.

STEP 1

Initial consultation.

This appointment is all about learning more about you, meeting our team and the treatment options we can offer to give you straight teeth for life. You’ll meet with one of our treatment coordinators and one of our orthodontists who will have a quick look at your teeth and explain what treatment options may be available to you.

We’ll put together a detailed treatment plan for you that best suits your needs and desired outcome. It will include an all-inclusive cost and the different interest free payment plans that are available.

 

STEP 2

Impressions.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment the next step will be your impressions appointment, which can be done immediately following your consultation or at another time, whichever you prefer. During this appointment we’ll take some photos of your teeth and smile, as well as a couple of x-rays and scans if required.

STEP 3

Fitting.

This is the appointment where we’ll fit you with your new braces or Invisalign. This is one of the longer appointments and usually takes about an hour. Our orthodontist will fit your braces or Invisalign and give you some guidance on how to take care of them.

STEP 4

Adjustments.

As your treatment progresses and your teeth begin to move into their new positions we’ll need to make regular adjustments to keep the process on track. The cost of these is included in your treatment plan and they’re usually short appointments of about 10 minutes, and we’ll happily fit them in with your busy life.

STEP 5

Debanding.

The debanding appointment is the first time that you’ll get to see your brand new smile as we take your braces off to reveal your straight teeth. During this appointment our orthodontists will gently remove your braces and give your teeth a good clean. You’ll also have a fixed retainer attached to the back of your teeth to ensure your teeth don’t move and stay in their new straight positions.

STEP 6

Retention.

At Medland Orthodontics our commitment to you is straight teeth for life, which is why we put such a focus on post-treatment care and retention. During your deband appointment you will have had a fixed retainer glued in place behind your teeth to stop your teeth from moving out of position. We’ll also provide you with a clear removable retainer that we recommend you wear to bed every night. It’s also up to you to keep those straight teeth looking good with regular visits to your dentist and a good oral hygiene routine.
