If you’re thinking about getting braces for yourself or for your child, you probably have a few questions you want to ask. At Smile Store we are more than happy to answer any queries you have to help put your mind at ease about the whole process. So today I will be giving you a list of 15 questions to ask your orthodontist before you get braces.
1: Will Invisalign (invisible braces) work for me? If the answer is no, why?
2: Can I have ceramic braces on just my upper teeth, or can I have them on both my upper and lower teeth?
3: Will I need to use rubber bands to correct my bite? How long will I need them?
4: Will I have to get any teeth extracted? Are wisdom teeth a problem?
5: Will I need jaw surgery as a part of the process?
6: Will I need to wear headgear to correct my teeth? For how long?
7: Will my facial profile be changed in anyway once the treatment is completed?
8: How long will the treatment take?
9: Approximately how many times will I have to come back for adjustments?
10: Do you provide any type of payment plan?
11: Will I need a retainer once my braces are removed? For how long?
12: Should my oral hygiene routine be any different when I have braces? How?
13: Will braces affect my lifestyle? How?
14: How much pain or discomfort is involved?
15: What do I do if I have a poking wire?
When you first meet with your orthodontist come armed with these questions. They will be more than happy to talk you through the whole process and put your mind at ease. For more information before you visit our surgery, visit us online.
