CFast Consultation

Find UK Dentists »

Consultations are recommended for all orthodontic patients and they offer benefits for the dentist and the patient. Firstly, the consultation is a chance to meet and get to know your dentist and for your dentist to have a good look at your teeth and find out everything they need to know about your bite and the position of your teeth. When you go for your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and then carry out some tests, such as X-rays, to get a detailed insight into the relationship between your teeth and jaws (also known as your bite) and the exact position of your upper and lower teeth. Once your dentist has the relevant information, they can determine which treatments would be suitable for you.

The consultation also gives you a chance to find out about the ins and outs of treatment and ask as many questions as you want; most people have lots of questions about braces, so don’t feel embarrassed or apprehensive about bombarding your dentist. Some examples of commonly asked questions include:

  • Is CFast the best option for me and what are the alternatives?
  • How long will I need to wear my braces?
  • Will I be able to eat normally?
  • Will my braces hurt?
  • How much does treatment cost?
  • Will my speech change?
  • How should I clean my teeth?
  • How often will I need to see my dentist?
  • Will I need to wear a retainer afterwards?
  • What will my smile look like after treatment?

If you give your dentist the green light and you want to press on with CFast treatment, they will start work on your personalised treatment plan and your braces will be created.
