Adult Orthodontic FAQs
Getting braces is a big decision. Treatment may last for two years or in some cases longer and so it’s really important that you understand how braces will affect you before committing.
We will always take care to inform you of everything you can expect before you start treatment because that’s how we can be sure your treatment will have the very best chance of success.
For example, if you think cleaning your teeth after meals or keeping your aligner in for 22 hours a day is going to be too difficult it’s much better that we talk about it sooner rather than later.
That said, and for all the perceived inconvenience of wearing braces, it’s highly unusual for anyone to choose not to proceed with the treatment recommended for them by one of our specialist orthodontists once they have been given a full consultation, with all the facts.
If you’re thinking about having orthodontic treatment, here are some useful facts. If you’d rather just talk to a human being please get in touch.
