Starting orthodontic treatment
It is said that every journey begins with a single step, and beginning your orthodontic treatment journey is no different. Here are the different steps you can expect along the way in your quest for a brand new smile.
Step 1: Free initial consultation
Your orthodontic treatment journey will begin with a free consultation at your local TIO orthodontist. You can do this without a referral. At your appointment, before you meet with your orthodontist, you’ll be asked to provide some information on your dental and medical history as this will help your orthodontist form your treatment plan.
Step 2: Orthodontic assessment
At your consultation you can ask any questions you have about treatment. Both the treatment coordinator and the orthodontist will be happy to answer these.
You'll then have an orthodontic assessment, where your orthodontist will examine your teeth and mouth and take any x-rays if needed. This information helps to compile your orthodontic treatment plan.
Step 3: Making the decision
Once your orthodontist has completed an initial assessment, this information will be presented to you in your treatment plan. This plan will outline your recommended treatment options, the estimated length of time treatment will take, and a quote detailing the cost of your treatment. Your orthodontist’s treatment coordinator will also be able to provide information on payment plans as well.
