Your First Orthodontic Visit
Your first visit to our orthodontic office is an exciting time! It’s a chance for us to get acquainted, and for you to learn about the treatments and services we offer. When you walk in the door, you may notice that our office looks similar to your regular dentist’s office; what we do here, however, is a little different – and a lot more fun! It all starts with the initial consultation.
A big part of our job on your first visit is to determine what treatment is necessary to correct any problems we may find — and whether we should begin treatment now, or wait until a later date. Our visit starts by taking a set of photographs and radiographic (x-ray) images. These 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 in your mouth just yet.
We will also take a scan of your teeth. This lets us visualize an exact replica of your teeth and your bite, which helps us understand exactly what the problem is and how best to treat it.
After that, it’s time for the evaluation! Dr. Rodgers will carefully look at the photos and x-rays, and perform a thorough examination inside your mouth. Besides looking in the mouth, we may also ask questions, such as whether the jaws make noise when the mouth is 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, we may tell you that things are just fine — or, we may recommend treatment. 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:
- Is there an orthodontic problem, and if so, what is it?
- What must be done to correct the problem?
- Will any teeth need to be removed?
- How long will the treatment take to complete?
- How much will the treatment cost?
When you leave our office, you will have a thorough understanding of how we can help you get the best possible smile. So why not take the first step now — call us to schedule a New Patient Consultation!
