Your first visit at Pallant Orthodontics

Your free consultation is as easy as 1, 2, 3

While your initial consultation is free, we take our time getting to know all our new patients. That’s why we’ll complete 3 initial visits before beginning treatments.

Your initial consultation with us is always complimentary.

Step 1 - Your complimentary visit

Your initial consultation will last for approximately 50 minutes. You’ll meet with our Treatment Coordinator who’ll invite you to talk about any concerns you might have about your smile. At that point, we’ll talk you through all the possible options that could address your concerns, including the potential costs and duration of each treatment programme.

It’s important you share your preferences as well as your requirements, so we can cater our recommendations to make sure they’re suitable for your needs. For example, if you’re uncomfortable with wearing braces for cosmetic reasons, we’ll suggest invisible brace options like Invisalign® clear aligners, rather than traditional metal braces.

We will take digital photographs and a 3D scan of your teeth. The digital scanner can be used to show you a simulation of what your new smile could look like.

It is our aim at this appointment to meet you and give you as much information as possible so a little preparation / research is always helpful, as you learn you will want to ask more questions! One of the best things we have found is to bring someone with you, it is far easier to discuss what has been said or have both people ask as many questions as possible.

Your first visit

Step 2 – Full case assessment

Your initial consultation is usually followed up by a full assessment and report, which details your treatment options and costs. This is sent to both you and your dentist.

At the second visit, we’ll conduct a comprehensive clinical assessment where we take X-rays, photos and models of your teeth. To ensure we get the most accurate models and impressions, we use the advanced technology of the iTero Digital Scanner

This information is required for us to be able to put together a detailed treatment plan.

Step 3 – Confirming your treatment

At your third visit, we’ll conclude your full case assessment. We’ll discuss the finer details of your treatment plan with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have before selecting and committing to a treatment plan. It is usually at this appointment we require your financial commitment and we would then also take any x-rays required. Following your treatment plan confirmation, you will also receive a detailed clinical report outlining every part of your treatment moving forwards.

Invisalign consultation

Invisalign consultation

If you’ve been referred to us for Invisalign® treatment, we’ll sit with you to understand your orthodontic concerns before taking you through all of the key benefits and features of Invisalign®. This will include a typical treatment programme, advice on costs and information about your payment plan options. And if for any reason Invisalign® isn’t suitable, we’ll discuss all the potential orthodontic treatment options that would be more suitable.

This initial Invisalign® consultation is free of charge.
