Whether you are new to the area, or new to teeth straightening, finding an orthodontic practice can be a difficult task, particularly if you’re based in the capital. Thankfully, we’re here to provide some helpful advice on what to look out for as well as our top 10 reasons why we believe Dulwich Orthodontics should be your number one choice when searching for a London orthodontist.
What to look for when choosing an orthodontist in London
The first thing you should consider when trying to find a practice to help straighten your smile is what experience and qualifications they have. Orthodontists are dentists who have undergone specialist training - for an additional 3 years on top of their dental qualifications. All orthodontists are dentists, but only an orthodontist is considered a specialist in delivering braces treatments.
The next factor to consider is the treatment options they can offer you. If you are looking for a specific style of brace, for example a clear aligner, gold braces or braces that have been designed for children, you will need to find an orthodontist that specialises in those treatments.
Another important consideration is their previous work. Can you view before and after images of their treatments or read testimonials from patients? Better still, if you have spoken to someone who has been happy with their braces treatment, ask them who their provider is and see if it is a practice that offers what you need.
If you are going to be referred for orthodontic treatment by your dentist, it is important to know why they recommend a certain practice. You don’t have to go with your dentist’s choice, but it makes sense to check out what they can offer, particularly if you know they have a good working relationship with your dentist, as this will help to keep your dentist informed about your treatment.
It’s also a good idea to see what the clinic environment is like. If you’re going to spend the next couple of years undergoing teeth straightening treatment, it’s important to find an orthodontic practice that you feel comfortable and relaxed in.
Finally, it’s worthwhile looking at the costs of treatments available, so you can make sure they are within your budget. The price of teeth straightening varies according to the braces system you choose, so it is worth finding an orthodontist who can talk through your choices and offer payment options to help you spread the cost.
