During Treatment

Embarking on orthodontic treatment can be exciting, but you’ll probably have a few questions about what the process will involve. The team at Colchester Orthodontic Centre will be with you every step of the way, supporting you during each appointment and giving you all the information you need.

Your fitting appointment

At this appointment, we will fit your braces (or put your aligners in place). If you are having fixed braces, the brackets will be bonded to the surface of your teeth and the archwires connected. Your fitting appointment will take longer than normal – approximately 30 minutes – and you will also be given full instructions on how to care for your brace.

After this appointment, you will need to come back and see us at 6-12 week intervals so we can adjust your braces, or if you’re are having treatment with Invisalign, we will provide you with the next series of aligners.

Orthodontic treatment at Colchester Orthodontic Centre is flexible enough to fit around your busy lifestyle. Routine appointments will usually only take about 20-30 minutes and we can offer times to suit your schedule.

Tracking your treatment

In between your appointments, it is vital to look after your teeth and braces and follow the instructions we have provided to ensure your treatment time is kept to a minimum.

To help make your orthodontic treatment that bit easier, we’ve put together some advice about looking after your braces and teeth, as well as recommendations about what you can and can’t eat when wearing braces.

During treatment, we will also take photographs of your teeth to ensure both you and your clinician are happy with how your treatment is progressing.

  • “I skipped on having braces as a child and took the plunge when I was 28 as this was holding me back with my confidence. At first, I wondered what people would think of a grown man with braces, but I am pleased to say this had no impact at all and I never really noticed that I had them. I thoroughly recommend Colchester Orthodontic Centre to my friends, family and anybody else thinking about having treatment.”

  • “After over 2 years of impeccable TLC from Colchester Orthodontic Centre my daughter is now able to show off the smile she has always deserved! Mr Davies was able to advise us with his wealth of experience as to what was needed, and the result is proof that they clearly know how to look after their client’s needs and ensure the best result at the end of the journey!”

  • My Invisalign experience with Colchester Orthodontic Centre was fab. I was supported the whole way through and given many options and I am now really happy with my teeth. The Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and discreet. I would definitely recommend Invisalign treatment at Colchester Orthodontic Centre.”
    Hollie - Patient

  • “You can make the most of your teeth at any age. Sometimes mature years can make you feel awkward attending the orthodontist, although I have been encouraged and treated with care and attention at every appointment. I try to maintain my teeth as best I can and I have received the very best care you could wish for. I started out feeling reluctant to smile. I am now very happy to smile at any occasion and feel grateful to the wonderful team at Colchester Orthodontic Centre, the whole team treat you with professional care and kindness.”
    Anne - Patient
