Diagnostic records include photographs of the teeth and face, radiographs (“x-rays”) and impressions for models of the teeth. These are used to accurately diagnose your orthodontic problems and formulate a customised treatment plan for you. The records also serve as a reference to monitor your progress during your treatment. Many of our patients love to look back in time at how much their teeth have changed since they started their treatment.
After analysing your records, Dr Brooks will discuss your orthodontic diagnosis and outline all available treatment options in detail, including their objectives, benefits, risks and limitations. Parents/ partners of patients are encouraged to attend this informative visit where we will also discuss probable time frames, treatment fees and payment options. We encourage you to ask any questions that you may have at this point, prior to the commencement of your treatment. You will be provided with a detailed written report outlining all of the above information, a copy of which will be forwarded to your referring dentist and any other practitioners directly involved in your management.
