Which questions should I ask during my orthodontic consultation?
When you visit Salins Orthodontics for your orthodontic consultation, you’ll probably have a lot of questions. We want you to be prepared for your appointment and feel in charge of your orthodontic treatment decisions, so keep these questions in mind to ask when you come in for your appointment:
• How long will I have to wear braces? • Will getting braces hurt? • Will I have to wear additional appliances to correct jaw problems while I have braces? • What can I eat when I have braces? • Are there certain things, like playing sports or playing an instrument, which I won’t be able to do? • How can I make sure my teeth stay clean and healthy while I have braces? • How often will I need to come in for appointments? • How much will my orthodontic treatment cost?
The team at Salins Orthodontics is here to answer all your questions and concerns, and we’re happy to explain all aspects of your treatment plan and expected outcome. Your orthodontic experience should be comfortable, hassle-free, and most importantly, leave you smiling!
