For your first appointment we will assess your problems, discuss the treatment options available to you and the best time for you to start treatment. We will also take into account your own concerns, your dental and facial development and your oral hygiene. If you are not ready to start treatment, you will be reviewed at a later date. If you are ready to start immediately, we will make an appointment to take dental records which include dental study models, photographs and x-rays.
No – Our initial consultation is free of charge for both adults and children.
This will depend on the problems you have with your teeth and jaws. Your orthodontist will advise you which options are available.

No, but you can normally expect your teeth to feel tender for the first few days after having your brace fitted and also following your routine adjustments. We normally recommend that you take your usual headache tablet to ease the tenderness.
Invisible or tooth coloured braces look great as you can see from our Orthodontics insert . Both SmileTRU and ‘aesthetic braces' are available at Octagon.
You are never too old to have your teeth straightened. We have many patients in their 20's and 30's and many a good deal older! Our orthodontist has a long history of treating adults, with great success.
