A GUIDE TO YOUR ORTHODONTIC CONSULTATION

January 30, 2024

Some people find the start of their orthodontic journey to be exciting and nerve-wracking. Your consultation appointment kicks off a process that will transform your smile and make you even more attractive. 

The office of Ortho Inc. knows that confidence in your smile and overall oral health affects the way you feel about yourself personally, socially and professionally. We stay at the forefront of orthodontic research and use the latest diagnosis and treatment technology to help our patients achieve their desired results.

If you’re feeling any apprehension, knowing what goes on during a typical initial consultation will lighten your load.

As a new patient, you get a warm welcome from the orthodontic team, who wants to create a comfortable environment for you. You fill out paperwork that will give the orthodontist a comprehensive background of your dental and overall health. 

You meet with the orthodontist for a thorough examination. He (or she) assesses your bite, teeth alignment and jaw positioning. X-rays and photographs are taken to gather additional information. This complete evaluation allows the orthodontist to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

The orthodontist tells you about his findings and explains his recommended treatment options. You can ask him any questions and tell him about any of your concerns. He tells you detailed information about which option—traditional brackets, metal braces, clear aligners or other orthodontic appliances—is best for you. 

If you decide to move forward with the treatment, he outlines the next steps, including scheduling follow-up appointments and an estimated timeline of your orthodontic journey. He gives you instructions about the oral care to which you’ll have to strictly adhere. This information is crucial for keeping your teeth and gums healthy throughout the treatment process, after which you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful and healthy smile.

The office of Ortho Inc. uses state-of-the-art knowledge and technology to perform a complete array of orthodontic procedures with the utmost precision. Our highly trained specialists are eager to help you feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving superior care. Please call us today to schedule an appointment!
