After your complimentary exam, if you decide to proceed with treatment, records are then made to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, study models of the teeth, photos of the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
After the doctor has thoroughly evaluated your diagnostic records, we'll explain your treatment to you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
After the Records Appointment, we'll be ready to schedule the appointment to get the new appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) placed. Getting appliances placed usually takes one to two hours. You'll then see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes about 30 minutes.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
