Commonly asked questions
It's best if you try and stay clear of any foods that are chewy, crunchy, sticky or hard. This includes lollies, nuts, ice, corn-on-the-cob, some meats with bones and anything else that may impact or break your braces.
We want to make sure that orthodontic treatment is an option for everyone, so we offer flexible interest-free payment plans that you can custom design to fit your budget. During your initial consultation, the full costs will be outlined and you’ll be able to discuss our payment plans.

If you feel like something isn’t quite right with your braces, it is important to call us as soon as you can. We can provide some temporary fixes while we book you in for an appointment.
Keep playing the sports that you love! It's best to wear a mouthguard when you're playing sports to protect your teeth and orthodontic appliance, but there's no reason to stop contact sports altogether.
It’s normal to experience a little discomfort after being fitted with a new orthodontic appliance. That means your teeth are moving! If you are fitted with braces, you can expect a little soreness as your teeth adjust. Luckily, because we use the Damon® System, you should experience less discomfort than with traditional braces.
Clear aligner treatments such as Invisalign® generally have very little discomfort involved. To ease any soreness, you can sip or swirl cold water around your mouth or manage it with over-the-counter pain relief. Your teeth should feel back to normal in just a few days.
