When it comes to orthodontic treatment, the main goal is to provide you with a straighter, healthier smile. Deciding to undergo orthodontic treatment (and also selecting an orthodontist) is an important decision for you and your family. You want a smile that looks and feels better, and you need to know what to expect from start to finish. To improve the appearance and position of your teeth, braces are no longer the only option.
Scheduling an initial consultation is the best way to ensure that the final result is as comfortable and successful as possible. By utilizing the latest technology and offering treatment options that are safe and effective, your orthodontist can deliver the individualized high quality results that you desire.
Based on the guidelines set by the American Association of Orthodontists, all children should receive an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven.
Although active treatment may not be required right away, there are some orthodontic conditions that can be prevented or minimized with early intervention.
So, you are thinking about scheduling your first visit. What should you expect? Your initial visit provides an opportunity for you to meet the entire dental team, learn more about braces, and find out which orthodontic treatment is right for you. Much of this information can be gathered during your clinical exam and your discussion with the orthodontist.
Your examination may include the following:
• Complete medical and dental history review
• Comprehensive oral exam, including X-rays and photos
• A detailed, customized treatment plan
• A review of financial policies, insurance coverage, and payment plans
Your first appointment is all about fact-finding, education, and planning. In order to select the orthodontic treatment option that is best for you, you’ll need to understand your current condition and all of your treatment choices.
