At our orthodontic practice your first visit will include dental photographs, x-rays if required and an exam by one of our specialised orthodontists, where you will find out about your treatment options in a detailed consultation that usually takes 45mins to 1 hour.
Your first consultation costing will range between $150 – $290.
What Happens Next?
If orthodontic treatment is decided on, you will receive a written quote. You do not need to decide at this appointment if you wish to go ahead with treatment as the quote is valid for 6 months. If you wish to proceed with treatment you will make some appointments to have braces fitted and any necessary appointments with your dentist if needed. If you are not ready for treatment, we will monitor you in the following months and years until you are ready or it is determined that you don’t require orthodontic treatment.
Each individual patient is unique with the make-up of their teeth. So no two orthodontic cases are the same therefore costing will depend on the severity of the case and the type of braces.
Treatments involve fitting braces and having regular adjustments every 4-8 weeks until your teeth are aligned in the ideal occlusion. Once braces are ready to be removed you will move onto the retention phase and have Permanent Fixed Lingual Retainers fitted to maintain the straightness of your teeth.
The fee covers the entire treatment from braces fitting to retention and observation periods.
Fees for treatment can range between $3000-$9000 or more. The orthodontist will discuss the fee with you before treatment is commenced
