Finalise the specifics
At e-LINE we adopt a uniquely-tailored approach. Our sole aim is to give every patient the best possible treatment – however complex or unusual the case. No two patients are exactly the same, so the first step is to make sure we understand the finest of details. We take the time in the 60 minute initial consultation to discuss all aspects of your dental problem, complete a thorough analysis of your facial structure and teeth, and talk over the range of treatment options available to you.
A crucial part of the investigatory process is using the very best technology available. Following the initial consultation, records will be taken for precise treatment planning; this could include digital radiographs, study models, high quality facial and intraoral photographs and computer simulated treatment when indicated.
At e-LINE we choose not to carry out any general dentistry, focusing solely on providing the best orthodontic treatment possible. As a result, many patients may be referred by their dentist and great care is taken to liaise with other clinicians in a multidisciplinary fashion. After the initial consultation and records our orthodontists will personally dictate an individual treatment report to you and your dentist outlining the treatment options and fees involved.
In some cases, a follow up consultation is required to finalise the specifics. Often, a 3D computer simulation is used to plan the treatment, meaning you’ll be able to see how the finished result will look before any treatment begins.

Results & Benefits
The benefits of orthodontic treatment go far beyond the obvious physical and cosmetic changes of an improved bite and straight teeth. Whilst beautiful straight teeth are important, even more important is the need to alleviate any potential associated health problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, digestion difficulties, speech impairments, jaw joint problems and even headaches and/or neck pain.
It is recommended that children are brought in for their first consultation at 8 years old. At this stage, any potential problems can be identified and prevented with interceptive treatment if necessary.
Orthodontic treatment can be undertaken at any age and adult treatment is growing rapidly, largely because it is now recognised for its role in improving self-confidence. Recent studies also suggest that orthodontics can protect and prolong a youthful appearance!
With the advancements in orthodontic technology, wearing braces has never been easier. 3D computer simulations allow you to see the end results before having anything fitted and the appliances themselves can be manufactured specifically for the individual ensuring complete accuracy, shorter treatment times and the very best end results. Often, orthodontics can be completed using clear components, invisible aligners, or braces fitted to the inside of the teeth for complete discretion.
