A personalised consultation
Every new patient in our orthodontic department begins with a free, personalized consultation. Your first orthodontic visit with us is about getting to know you: your concerns, your expectations, your life. Once we’ve had a chance to chat, we will provide a thorough visual orthodontic examination and maybe even share some information about your mouth that you didn’t yet know. We will give insights as to the best treatment options for your unique situation and answer any questions you may have.
During your free initial orthodontic consultation, we will:
- Review your medical and dental history
- Discuss your particular concerns about your teeth, smile, and bite
- Provide a thorough visual orthodontic examination
- Take or review radiographs (x-rays) as needed to allow a more complete diagnosis
- Explain our observations; discuss orthodontic treatment options and appropriate timing for orthodontic treatment
- Explain orthodontic fees and appointments
- Answer any questions you may have about your orthodontics and discuss your priorities
- Always let you know what the “next step” should be
Ready for orthodontic treatment
If you are ready for orthodontic treatment, we will want to get to know you even more thoroughly to ensure we do our best for you. We will schedule a diagnostic records appointment and an orthodontic treatment planning appointment. The first of these appointments allows us to gather comprehensive information through photographs, impressions, and radiographs (x-rays). The treatment planning appointment is scheduled to allow us to review this information and discuss orthodontic treatment options.
There can be multiple ways to address your orthodontic concerns it’s our responsibility to allow you the time to understand those ways and choose what is best for you. We realize that ideal orthodontic outcomes are much more likely if we are all on the same page and working toward the same goal. Ideal orthodontic outcomes make everyone happy and what better way to show that happiness than to share your new, confident, charming smile with the whole world!
Observation Care Program
Sometimes, with young patients, orthodontic treatment is not yet appropriate. In these instances, we will place your child in our Observation Care Program. It is extremely important to monitor the growth and development of the teeth and jaws to intercept any orthodontic problems early. In addition to monitoring the development of adult teeth, we will also want to ensure your child’s bite is developing correctly. Jaw growth and bite problems are related to growth patterns and need to be addressed at the proper stage of maturation. This is an individual time frame not necessarily related to age directly, as everyone grows at their own rate and time. During this observation period, we will determine the optimal time to begin orthodontic treatment to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
Orthodontics is an amazing investment in yourself or your child’s life. We are here to guide you through the process, step by step, from day one.
