At your first visit to our office, we will provide a clinical evaluation of your orthodontic concerns and determine the best course of treatment. If treatment is recommended, the next appointment is usually for diagnostic records which include x-rays, photographs and impressions. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan which will finalize treatment time and costs. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
The appointment during which your braces, expanders, etc. are placed usually takes 1 to 2 hours. You will then be seen at regular intervals for adjustments, which take 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
