Braces aren’t just for kids anymore!
We will need to make a treatment plan for you and will require thorough and accurate diagnostic records. This appointment will be approximately 30 minutes in duration.
The components of the records appointment are:
A “head x-ray” used to measure the size of the patient’s jaws and the position of their teeth.
This x-ray is used to determine the presence of all a patient’s teeth, the health of their roots and in addition the health of the jaw bone. The Panorex also gives us a view of the wisdom teeth, whether they are visible in the mouth or not.
Our assistant will take several photos of you.
Our clinical assistant will also take impressions of your teeth, which will be turned into accurate 3 dimensional replicas of your teeth. We will utilize these models in conjunction with the x-rays and photos to formulate a definitive treatment plan for you.
We will schedule a follow up complimentary case presentation appointment at which time you will meet with our treatment coordinator who will discuss the orthodontic findings.
