Your First Orthodontic Visit

Orthodontic care begins with an initial evaluation appointment, it’s also free.  During this appointment, your general dentist or orthodontist will determine if you are a good candidate for orthodontic treatment.  Otherwise, another treatment may be more appropriate.  If the doctor determines that you are ready for orthodontics, he or she will begin the process with your consent.

Our team will take impressions of your teeth, special x-rays of your jaw joint, teeth as well as head.  This will be finished up by taking particular measurements of your teeth and mouth too.

Next, you will have a consultation to discuss proper treatment plan.  The treatment plan is based on the records taken at the dental evaluation.  The consult will cover such topics as specific, recommended treatment, expected length of required treatment, as well as the expected cost associates with the type of treatment.
