An orthodontics consultation is the best opportunity to have your questions answered before undergoing treatment. Patients who feel prepared and informed heading into treatment can be the most confident in making decisions regarding the improvement of their teeth and alignment. With this knowledge considered, here are several common questions that an orthodontic consultation can address.
Are there other options besides braces for adjusting my teeth?
A consultation can fully determine whether braces are the sole option for re-aligning your teeth.
What volume of preparation is necessary in order to get braces?
The number of visits you will need depends on the current condition of your teeth as well as the type of braces required. Accelerated braces are also an option if you are determined a candidate for this treatment.
Is pain expected when getting braces?
There is generally minimal discomfort associated with getting braces. There may be some minor discomfort during the first few days, but this is an adjustment period that can be managed as the treatment progresses. You can also rinse your mouth with a salt water fluid to further improve your comfort during the process.
How long will I have to wear braces?
This is a question that varies from patient to patient. After an initial evaluation of your teeth, the orthodontist has more information on-hand to estimate how long you will need to wear braces.
These are a sample of the questions that you can expect to be addressed during an orthodontic consultation. For additional information about what to expect during a consultation, you can contact I Song Orthodontics.
