At your first visit to our office, a thorough examination, Medical and Dental Health Histories help us know if you need Orthodontic treatment. Once you are ready for treatment, Diagnostic records are made to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include; photographs nine different views, X-rays, plaster study models of your teeth. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
After the doctor has evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes 1 to 2 hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
