FAQs

 

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist field of dentistry that is involved with the study and correction of what we call ‘improper bites’.

 

What are orthodontists?

An orthodontist is a specialised dentist who helps to treat irregularities of the mouth, teeth and jaw.

 

What will happen at my first appointment with an Odontoville Dental Clinics orthodontist?

To find out what your orthodontic needs are, we will conduct a variety of methods, including direct measurements, X-rays, study casts and photographs, to work out your treatment plan.

 

What does orthodontic treatment cost?

The costs vary, depending on a number of factors, a consultation will tell us at Odontoville dental clinics how to tackle the issue at a very reasonable cost

 

What kinds of braces are there out there?

Nowadays, there is a great deal of choice when it comes to braces. Everything from traditional metal braces to ceramic, through to clear Invisalign braces. Some are fixed to your teeth and others are removable. When you first meet with your Odontoville dental clinics orthodontist, you can discuss what your options are. What you end up with depends on your budget and on what best suits your requirements.

 

I don’t want to wear a brace at all. What are other options are there?

Some patients prefer to have crowns or veneers fitted to mask an irregularity. However, crowns and veneers do not last indefinitely and there is a limit to how much irregularity they can mask.

 

Will I need to have teeth extracted?

There is no single answer to this question. In certain cases extractions are required to align crowded teeth or correct the bite. It all depends on the sort of problem that needs correcting.

 

How long will treatment take?

Simple straightening can sometimes be carried out as quickly as six months. However, it often takes between one and two years to get your bite as close as to perfect as we can.

 

Is treatment painful?

It is likely that there will be some discomfort to start with. Expect a little bit of an ache and some tenderness in the gums as your teeth start to move. Usually this wears off pretty soon.
