About a week before your first visit, you will receive a new patient package in the mail. It will contain information that will speed up your first visit and make it go smoother. If for some reason you have not received these materials, you can download it here.
We will talk about problems and solutions at your first visit. You will be thrilled with the kinds of results we can get for you. You can take a look at some of the most common problems and customary results by clicking here.
We set aside enough time to begin with “hellos”, take diagnostic records, and leave with separators inserted, ready for braces at the next appointment (if certain factors fall into place). We always try to do as much as we can for you on each visit. This is how we try to value your time and save you more money.
Diagnostic records are a vital part of your treatment and diagnosis. They consist of a set of dental impressions to create study casts (models of your teeth), a set of 9 facial and oral photographs, a cephalometric x-ray and a panaramic x-ray of the full mouth. The study casts and x-rays are stored digitally on the Internet. These diagnostic materials are used to create a diagnosis and plan of treatment, and they are consulted from time to time to evaluate progress.
