What Questions Should I Ask At My Braces Consultation?

Businesswoman With Question MarksMeeting with the orthodontist for a braces consultation provides important information for the patient before the orthodontic treatments begin. When you meet with the orthodontist, it’s helpful to have a list of questions. Essential questions to ask during a braces consultation at the orthodontist office helps you learn what to expect from the treatment and how to prepare.

  1. What are my options?

As soon as you know what your goal for your teeth and smile is, your orthodontist can offer the best options to help achieve that goal, whether it may be traditional braces or Invisalign, an alternative orthodontic treatment for teens and adults.

  1. How long will I wear braces? How many visits to the orthodontist office will it take?

Every orthodontic treatment is customized to the individual patient and no two people are the same. Your orthodontist will discuss and explain not only the treatment procedure but the timeline for each stage as well.

  1. Will wearing braces hurt?

It’s very important to let your orthodontist know if you’re feeling nervous or even scared about having braces put on — and these feelings are normal. Ask if you should expect any level of discomfort when having braces put on and while wearing the orthodontics. Your orthodontist will be upfront and explain what may feel uncomfortable and when as well as how to ease that discomfort.

  1. Are there foods I can’t eat?

Wearing braces can mean a few lifestyle changes including certain foods that may need to be avoided. Ask your orthodontist for a complete list of foods to avoid. Often these include things like caramel, taffy, and hard candies.

  1. Do I have to brush or floss a special way when wearing braces?

Proper dental care, including brushing and flossing is key when wearing braces. Have your orthodontist explain the correct procedure and be sure to follow it.

The initial consultation with an orthodontist provides valuable information and can ease many worries about the orthodontic treatment. Call to book your first braces consultation today and get started on the road to beautiful and healthy smile.
