Ask the Orthodontist

What questions should I ask the orthodontist at the consultation?

First ask the orthodontist about the technique he/she uses and his/her
general treatment philosophy. Some orthodontists try to make the treatment
as short and comfortable as possible. Others use less expensive materials
and products. Ask the orthodontist about the materials used. Some
orthodontists take brackets out of one patient's mouth and recycle them into
another patient's mouth. The safety and reliability of this procedure is still
unclear. Ask the orthodontist about their treatment philosophy. You will need
to decide whether the orthodontist's treatment philosophy is right for your

Ask the orthodontist about the type of brackets they plan to use. The
orthodontist's choice of bracket influences how long your child's treatment
will take, and how comfortable your child will be during treatment. The
orthodontist may have some latitude to choose one of several different
bracket designs. If so, you may have some input into which bracket your
orthodontist chooses. One key choice is whether to use a low profile or
a high profile bracket. Generally, low profile brackets are less irritating to
your children's lip than high profile brackets, but they are newer, and some
orthodontists never learned how to use them. Ask the orthodontist about their
sterilization procedures. Make sure they use an autoclave on all of their

No one can tell you what is right for your child, without looking at your case.
However, as a parent, you need to be comfortable with the orthodontist's
choice and whether the choice is right for your child.
