Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.
Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, possibly with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information and potential payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, most patients require one more appointment before their braces are placed. This appointment is for orthodontic records and usually involves photos, X-rays, and impressions.
The next appointment to place your braces usually takes an hour and a half and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
To ensure proper progression and monitoring of your treatment, you are usually expected to visit our office about every eight to ten weeks.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for cleanings and routine dental checkups, especially during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
