The initial chat was good. Dr Sadiq sits you down and tries to find out a bit about you, what you expect from the treatment and why you want it. At this point I hadn't signed up to the treatment and found he was trying to push me to sign up there and then, but I can't blame him for that I guess.
The treatment began well. I was to come back fairly regularly. Sometimes Dr Sadiq would see me and sometimes his Orthodontist, Emma, would see me. Both very likeable people. Overall I am pleased with the treatment and the results. The treatment is expensive, but that is the way it is.
On the negative side: while having this treatment I noticed that there was a lot of plaque building up on the lower front teeth and brushing was unable to prevent this as the brush couldn't get to the areas it normally can because of the braces. I raised concern about this to Emma (the other Orthodontist that worked there) and she left me with the impressions it's normal and that she will clean it off after the treatment (which was still a few months away). When the plaque was removed, I realised that I had lost a lot of gum matter. Basically, bacteria had been festering and had destroyed some of the gum matter, so I was left with gaps between my teeth. Now ever since the braces were removed I have a bleeding gums problem that is hard to get rid of. If this had been brought to my attention by the Dr Sadiq and his staff who inspected my teeth every 2 months throughout the treatment, I may have saved myself this problem. So this aspect of the treatment was very disappointing to me.
