The Various Stages of Your Treatment

Orthodontic Treatment Stages

There are a number of stages in your Orthodontic Assessment and possible Treatment Planning.

Appointment One: Initial Consultation

Dr Playfair will meet with you to listen to your concerns. After conducting a preliminary examination, he will provide a brief explanation of the possible treatment you may need (if any). If no treatment is immediately necessary, Dr Playfair will advise you accordingly and recommend a time frame for you to revisit us. At this time, there is a set fee for your initial consultation of $95.00

Appointment Two: Records of your teeth

At the records appointment, records of your teeth will be taken. These along with x-rays, will enable Dr Playfair to conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and diagnose the problem you may have.

Appointment Three onwards: Active treatment and Retention

Any active treatment begins when your appliance eg braces, plates are placed and you are required to attend regular appointments with Dr Playfair. It is important that you try to keep all of your ongoing appointments to maintain progress of your treatment. Dr Playfair will attend to you personally and ensure your treatment is progressing as expected.

Once you have completed active treatment, you will progress into the retention stage with regular appointments of between 8 weeks to 6 months over a period of approximately two years. Dr Playfair will monitor you during this stage to ensure your teeth stabilise to maintain the results achieved.

Your treatment fee covers the cost of fitting/adjusting your retainers for two years as well as your first set of retainers.
