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, and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options 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 meet our team, 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, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance benefits, and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to move forward with treatment.
What happens after the initial consultation?
Because our treatment plans are customized to each specific patient, care begins with either a digital scan of your teeth or an orthodontic impression. These are used for custom design and fitting of your initial appliance(s). If the scan or impression is taken at the time of your initial evaluation, we will schedule to have that appliance or braces placed 2 to 4 weeks later.
Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is crucial that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. Your dentist is skilled at cleaning around all orthodontic appliances.
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.
