virtual orthodontic consultation

Did you know that Orthodontics Limited offers virtual appointments and consultations? By giving us a call, we can have you set up for your appointment ASAP- all from the comfort of your home! Not only is this convenient, but it is also safer for you during the pandemic.

Just like coming in-person to visit us, a virtual orthodontic consultation can lead to you having better oral health. How is that?

In this post, we are going to explain how a virtual consultation can benefit you and your smile! If you are nervous about trying out our virtual services you will feel a lot better after reading. Here are the ways that a virtual orthodontic consultation will lead to better oral health:

1. You Can Get Teeth Aligners at Home

After completing our easy virtual orthodontic consultation, we might recommend that you undergo a treatment. One of these at-home options would be our Invisalign braces. These are clear aligners that we can send you in the mail- they will straighten your teeth a little faster than braces and are generally more affordable.

The process is easy and you may be able to stay at home for the entirety of it. All you need to do is request to make an appointment with us, we may also ask you for pictures of your teeth at different angles. You can complete the appointment at home with any device that has a working camera and microphone- it will not take long.

This initial consultation will determine if we think that Invisalign braces will be a benefit to you. If they are we will send you a kit to take an impression of your teeth, once you send it back to us, you can expect to get your clear braces in the mail soon.

During your orthodontic treatment, we would like to check in with you often over video chat- as often as you would expect to come in for appointments. These virtual appointments keep you at home and safe- plus, they are generally more convenient for people than taking time out of your day to make a scheduled appointment.

Our orthodontic dentists handle all of the virtual orthodontic consultations, much like they would handle your in-person appointments. Just because your appointment is being handled over the internet does not mean that you can expect less quality of care from us. We are always doing to do our best to provide you with high-quality treatments.

Teeth aligners lead to better oral health. They adjust your teeth the same way braces do, so they can undo crowding- which can cause decay and put your jaw out of alignment. Plus, you get the bonus of feeling more confident in your smile after you complete the treatment!

2. We Can Help You With an Orthodontic Emergency

What happens if you are already going through orthodontic treatment and your wire on your braces snaps? Call us immediately and we can help you out and save your teeth until you can come in for an appointment. With everyone stuck at home, virtual orthodontic appointments are crucial for this.

We will provide you with tips on keeping your snapped wire under control until we can take a look at it at our office. Being able to video chat with you and see what is going on in your mouth is important here, as wires and brackets can break differently and we want to give you the best advice.

Fixing any problems with your treatment immediately is crucial to your oral health. When your braces are broken, they are no longer doing their job properly- and might be slowly making your teeth worse. By calling us for a virtual orthodontic consultation, we can help you safely keep everything in place until you can have an orthodontic dentist fix the problem in-person for you.

3. We Can Get to Your Appointment Faster

If you suspect problems with your teeth that have been worsening over time, then you are going to want to have a specialist fix them as soon as possible. Since our virtual orthodontic consultations take significantly less time than in-person check-ups, we can get to you quicker.

Problems like teeth overcrowding can cause many issues that become much worse over a long period. We can help you get treatment faster through the virtual appointment and get you started on your orthodontic treatment sooner.

This is especially true for our Invisalign braces. Once you have completed the first check-up and sent in the mold you created of your teeth, we can send you the aligners- getting you started on treatment right away.

Plus, you do not have to go through the process of getting brackets attached to your teeth and you will not need to have your wires tightened later. All you need to do is wear the aligners as we send them to you.

If you are already wearing braces for a treatment contacting us with any problems or questions that you have will benefit your oral health. This is because it allows us to catch any issues before they start to create bigger problems.


If you decide to schedule a virtual orthodontic consultation with us, you can be sure that you are taking the first step on the path to better oral health. Our Invisalign braces are easy to obtain if you need orthodontic treatment. Soon, you could be straightening your teeth with them!

In short, there are many benefits to contacting us and doing the consultation. We always provide the highest quality of orthodontic care, so you can be sure that you are going to be getting the best treatment as well.

Contact us with any questions you have about our clear aligners or virtual appointments- plus, be sure to give us a call if your current treatment runs into a problem! The sooner we fix it, the better it is for your oral health.
