Types of Appointments

New Patient Exams

Call today for a complimentary consultation to see if you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment.  If you are not ready but will need treatment, we are happy to see you at no charge till that time comes.

Regular Adjustments

Scheduled appointments should not take longer than 15-20 minutes.  At these appointments we will change the color bands around each bracket and possibly a wire.  We typically see our patients every 5-6 weeks.

Records

The following information will be recorded:

  • Radiographs

  • Digital Scans of the patient's teeth

  • Facial and intraoral photos

Emergencies

Anytime a bracket breaks or an appliance, we highly recommend that you call our office immediately.  If our office is not open, there is always a number where one of the doctor's can be reached.  

Consultation

Sit down with one of our doctors who will thoroughly review your records, explain treatment options and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan for you specific case.

Removal of Appliances

Congratulations! You are done with treatment.  Expect this appointment to take approximately 60 minutes.  Here we will remove all appliances, glue from your teeth, polish, impressions for any necessary retainers and photos of the finished producte - your teeth!

Banding of Appliances

At this appointment, the braces or buttons for Invisalign will be bonded to the teeth.  This procedure takes approximately 60-90 minutes.  Once the appliances are placed, the staff and doctors will make sure you understand and are comfortable with your new appliance.

Retainer Appointments

Now just because you are done with active treatment, doesn't mean you are done with your appointments.  We like to follow our patients till we at least have addressed the removal or eruption of the 3rd molars (wisdom teeth).  We gladly welcome patients at anytime for a retainer check!
