Initial Consultation

At the first visit, we will evaluate the necessity and timing of orthodontic treatment. Variations in individual dental development may mean that some patients are ready for treatment earlier than others. Coordination of orthodontic treatment with other necessary dental treatment will also be addressed.

Digital facial and intra-oral photographs as well as a digital panoramic radiograph may be taken at the first visit in order to provide the information needed to determine the necessity and timing of treatment.

If treatment is necessary, comprehensive orthodontic records will be taken subsequently. These include other radiographs, and impressions of the teeth. The doctors will analyze this complete set of information in order to develop the final diagnosis and treatment options.
