Your first visit
What to expect from your first consultation
Every bespoke treatment at Yorkshire Orthodontics starts with a full orthodontic consultation. Here’s what to expect at your visit.
Your first visit in five simple steps
While every treatment at our practice is unique, our patients follow the same steps during their first appointment:
You can book your first appointment by making an enquiry via our form on our website, email or phone. We will find the time and location that is most convenient for your 45-minute appointment.
After receiving a warm welcome from our reception staff, your specialist orthodontist will do an assessment of your teeth, jaws and smile with photos and x-rays (as needed) to determine if you could benefit from orthodontic treatment – and which treatment is most appropriate.
We will use our digital scanner to create an accurate model of your smile, without the need for any bite moulds. This will help us create a bespoke treatment plan for you.
You will have time to talk with your Specialist Orthodontist, who will discuss all the treatment options available to improve your smile whilst also giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about your treatment and payment options.

What is the best age to visit a Specialist Orthodontist?
There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy though, we can treat you well into your 70s!
Complex issues are easier to treat while your jaw is still growing, which is why the most popular time for children's treatment is between the age of 10-15 years of age.
