(what to expect)

Step 1: Initial Consultation

The orthodontist will examine the teeth, jaws and bite and advise you of your treatment options.  If your child is not ready for treatment, we offer one recall/review appointment free of charge. 

 

The fee for  initial consultation is  $120 (45 minutes)

Step 2: Diagnostic Records

 

Once you are keen to proceed with treatment, photographs, x-rays and 3-dimensional scans of the teeth will be taken. You will receive a report confirming the treatment plan and your payment options. 

 

The fee for diagnostic records is $350 (30 minutes). 

A $70 discount would be applied if the consultation and diagnostic records are done on the same day.

Step 3: Placement of braces

We offer different types of braces and customised appliances. Depending on what you need, the procedures may vary. However in most cases, approximately an hour appointment is required for the placement of braces including instructions on proper care of your teeth with braces. You will have to come in for adjustment of the appliances every 4-6 weeks until the treatment goal is achieved.

Step 4: Removal of braces

 

Approximately an hour and a half appointment is required. The braces and the adhesive on the teeth will be removed thoroughly and you'll be given fixed/removable retainers. Updated records will also be taken and you'll be given your before and after pictures.

Retainers

 

Teeth has memory so they tend to want to move back to where they were. Retainers are either fixed wires or removable plates to help keep the teeth in their new position.

Finances

 

Your investment in orthodontic treatment will bring lifelong rewards. As all orthodontic problems are different, fees will vary with the complexity of the case.

 

A full consultation and diagnostic records are required before we can quote the treatment fee. We offer interest free instalment payment plans. A 30-35% deposit would be required of a given set treatment fee, and $250-$300 paid as automatic monthly payments.  

 

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment: We offer discounts for full upfront payments, multiple child/sibling discounts and interest free payment plans with monthly instalments.

Payment plans are not available for early orthodontic treatment, however, let us know if you need one and we might be able to help. 

Other appliances

 

Not everyone has the same problems with their teeth and therefore the treatment is customised to the individual's requirement. There are a variety of appliances that we use to treat different problems. You will always be fully informed on the procedures, costs and care involved.
