Patient Information

Our team at Dream Smiles want to ensure your every experience with us is as smooth and hassle free as possible.

This is why we offer extra information to help you understand your treatment plan, payment options and helpful tips for your diet and oral hygiene care.

Treatment plan

During your first visit, you will be informed of the following:

  • The nature of your orthodontic problems
  • The options to treat your orthodontic problems
  • The likely fee for your treatment
  • The payment options available

In addition, you will be given a consultation folder to read if you would like more general information about orthodontic treatment.

Occasionally, some orthodontic problems may be more complicated. In such cases, we may need to do stone models of your teeth and take some radiographs before your treatment plan can be finalised.

These initial exams and studies will help us develop an individualised orthodontic treatment plan for your treatment.

Oral Hygiene and Diet

Keeping up your oral hygiene routine during Orthodontic Treatment can make all the difference in the world

Brushing and flossing become more important when you are wearing braces. This is because braces create a lot of areas for food and plaque to collect. If these areas are not kept clean, it can lead to cavities and gum problems.

It is highly recommended that you continue to attend your regular examination and cleaning appointments with your general dentist during your orthodontic treatment. You can eat most of your favourite foods with braces, but there are some foods you should stay away from. Sticky, hard, and crunchy foods can dislodge braces and break wires.
