Patient First Orthodontic Visit

Your First Orthodontic Visit

Your first visit to our orthodontic office is a chance for us to get acquainted, and for you to learn about the treatments and services we offer, including the state-of-the-art teeth straightening Invisalign system. Our office looks similar to your regular dentist’s office, but what we do here is a little different—and a lot more fun! It all starts with the initial consultation.

Our goal for your first visit is to determine what treatment is necessary to correct any problems we may find, and how soon we might recommend beginning your treatment. We’ll start by taking a set of photographs and radiographic (x-ray) images, which enable us to see what’s going on above and also underneath the gums, the position and growth of your bones and joints, and if there are teeth that are still below the gum line that we can’t see just yet.

We will also take a 3D scan of your teeth. This replica of your teeth and your bite helps us understand exactly what your condition may be and how best to treat it.

After that, it’s finally time for the evaluation! Dr. Rodgers will carefully look at the photos and x-rays, and perform a thorough examination of your mouth. We may also inquire as to whether your jaws make noise when opening or closing, or if there are any problems chewing or swallowing. Taken together, this information will allow us to make a proper diagnosis and finalize our treatment plan.

Following the exam, treatment might begin on the same day or at a later time, depending on the developmental stage of the teeth and jaws.

Let’s Make a Plan

There are five essential questions that we will cover during the initial examination:

  • Are there any obvious orthodontic conditions that need treatment?
  • What must be done to correct the problem?
  • Will the removal of any teeth be necessary?
  • How long will the treatment take to complete?
  • How much will the treatment cost?

You’ll leave our office with a thorough understanding of how we can help you get the best possible smile. Why not take the first step now? Call us to schedule a New Patient Consultation!
