Palmerston North Specialist Orthodontist
We offer Orthodontic treatment for patients who would like their teeth straightened to improve both the aesthetic appearance and functional performance of their teeth. As a Specialist practice, Orthodontics is all we do here, which means we can focus on providing the very best Orthodontic care.
The purpose of the initial consultation is to identify and diagnose your unique issues/malocclusion. This typically involves the following:
Specialised x-rays and a full set of photos of your teeth and face
Creation of a set of models of your teeth, set up into the bite position
- A tooth check - checking how the teeth bite together, and assessing the jaw and face shape.
Discussing your individual needs and desired outcomes for Orthodontic treatment.
After the initial consultation, Mike will form a treatment plan specific to you. Treatment can involve a number of facets, which may include plates and braces, and, on rare occasions, oral surgery.
Mike will discuss the treatment plan in detail. Patients and caregivers are always invited to ask lots of questions. It's very important to have all the information you need to make an informed decision about Orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatment is very much a partnership between, you, the patient, parent or carer, and me, the Orthodontist. The length of treatment varies considerably from patient to patient, depending on the complexity of the problem, as well as other factors.
