Your first appointment with Dr Saicich is a full assessment of your teeth, not just a meet-and-greet. The consultation will take approx. 30 minutes where he will examine your teeth, smile and facial balance. Based on this examination, Dr Saicich will then discuss with you:
Once you have decided to go-ahead with treatment, Dr Saicich will fit you with your new braces or Invisalign.
Our team will provide you advice regarding oral hygiene and brace or Invisalign care.
This appointment is usually less than an hour and takes place in the late morning or early afternoon.
While you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, we will need to see you every six weeks for short appointments of about 10 minutes.
These appointments are to ensure your treatment is progressing and enables us to tighten your braces or issue you with a new set of Invisalign aligners.
The cost of all appointments are included in your treatment plan.
Retention is a critical part of maintaining the results from your treatment and keeping a straight smile. After you receive your final retainers, you will come back in 8 weeks for a retention check.
We will continue to see you throughout the next 2 years, at each review appointment your tooth alignment and retainers will be checked.
When your teeth are in their new position, we will gently remove your braces and attach a fixed retainer to the back of your teeth. You will also receive a clear, removable retainer to wear in the evening while you sleep.
This is an important phase of treatment as without retainers your teeth could move back into their original position.
