At your first consultation, Dr Lalieu or Dr Barbagallo will spend time examining your orthodontic problem from a facial aspect as well as your teeth and bite. This will allow them to work out what your orthodontic problem is.
They will then be able to explain to you:
- What your orthodontic problem is
- What treatment may be required
- How long your treatment is likely to go for
- When is the best time to start your treatment
- How much treatment may cost
If you are ready for treatment we usually need to gather diagnostic records including: impressions for models of your teeth, x-rays of your teeth and jaw structure, photos of your face/smile/and teeth.
These well help Dr Lalieu and Dr Barbagallo to accurately determine your optimal orthodontic treatment. As you can see, there is nothing to be anxious about at your first visit with us. While you’re are here, why not take a tour of our rooms, read our notice boards, see who got their braces off recently, read about our “Patient of the Month”, or enter one of our competitions.
