Orthodontic Consultation Q&A

What is an orthodontics consultation?

Orthodontics consultations are dental evaluations to determine if and which type of orthodontic treatment is most beneficial. Orthodontics procedures move your teeth into their ideal alignment over time with little to no discomfort.

Which orthodontic treatments are available?

Common orthodontics treatments include:


Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that fit over the top of your teeth to move them into a desirable position. You wear each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks before switching to the next set in your series; you can take the aligners out of your mouth to eat and brush and floss your teeth.


Fastbraces are a popular orthodontic treatment similar to traditional braces, but they can straighten your teeth in much less time. If you have crooked teeth and desire rapid results, Fastbraces might be for you.

Is an orthodontic consultation right for me?

Orthodontics consultations are a good option if you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite and desire aesthetically pleasing results. 

During your consultation, the Dentistry For Midtown team reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They take dental X-rays and discuss your preferences, as well as your desired outcome.

What happens during orthodontic treatment?

Dentistry For Midtown team personalizes orthodontics treatments to meet your needs. 

Before undergoing Invisalign treatment, your specialist digitally scans your teeth so a dental lab can create custom-fitted aligners that rest comfortably over your teeth. When the aligners are ready, you can begin wearing them all of the time except when you eat and brush your teeth.

During Fastbraces application, your dentist bonds brackets to your teeth and attaches wires to them to shift the teeth into their ideal position. Your provider periodically tightens the wires until you complete treatment.

How long does orthodontic treatment last?

Every patient is different, which is why orthodontic treatment times vary. You might complete Invisalign treatment in as little as 6-18 months, while Fastbraces treatments might take 18 months to two years.

Don’t let crooked or misaligned teeth negatively affect the appearance of your smile or your self-confidence. Call the Dentistry For Midtown office to schedule an orthodontic consultation or book one online today.
