What Happens at Your Initial Orthodontic Consultation

Apr 18, 2024

Hi, I’m Dr Mike Anderson I’m an orthodontist at Allstar Orthodontics here in Fortitude Valley and Albany Creek in Brisbane.

Are you considering aligning your teeth, but don’t know what to expect at the initial consultation? Well, I want to take you through the process that we follow here at Allstar Orthodontics to ensure it is comprehensive, informative and convenient for you.

The consultation normally takes about 30 to 45 minutes. We start your consultation by asking a series of questions so we get to know you, understand what you want to achieve with your smile and any concerns you may have.

After our discussion, we will take a look at your mouth as part of the comprehensive examination. If you have any X-Rays with you, we will go through them as well, if you don’t, that’s ok, you can take them later, and it is bulk billed via medicare, and we can review them at a later date.

We will take a series of high quality digital photos, as well as taking a 3D digital scan of your teeth.

After this, we will go through the complexity of your case, what it takes to align your smile, and show you all your options, including traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners, as well as 3D printed braces, which is the latest in braces technology. We will help you decide the best treatment for you based on your situation and lifestyle.

You’ll also have the ultimate convenience of dental monitoring. This is cutting edge technology that we use to help with your orthodontic treatment. It’s a process where you take a video of your teeth every week, and this enables us to keep a close eye on your progress. The main benefit to you is that you will only have to come to an appointment when you require it. And it also helps shorten your treatment time.
