What You Should Expect from Your Orthodontist
Many people have never visited an orthodontic practice before and are unsure of what to expect. We are so excited when we get to be a new patient’s first visit to the orthodontist because we know we can give them a great experience! The first visit to either of our offices will start with a warm smile and a thorough examination and consultation.
The consultation is usually the first step and is our way of getting to know you, while simultaneously introducing ourselves. During the consultation, we will usually:
- Review your medical and dental history
- Ask you about your concerns for your oral health
- Design a custom treatment plan for you
- Examine your mouth thoroughly
- Take a digital scan of your teeth
- Take radiographs
- Hold an in-depth question and answer session with you regarding any treatment plans that we make
- A breakdown of all costs and insurance options and an introduction to our payment plans
When we are consulting a minor, we require the parent to be present for all consultations for our benefit and yours.
Orthodontists Do More Than Just Braces!
When you think about orthodontics, what is the first thing that pops into your head? Probably braces, but is there anything else? While a large portion of the work we do is on placing and maintaining braces, we also work very hard on a wide variety of teeth alignment issues. These issues include things like:
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
- alignment issues that cause difficulties speaking properly
- Issues caused by thumb sucking
- Bite issues
- Late loss or early loss of baby teeth (primary teeth)
- Tooth impaction issues
Whether the issues stem from the pre-existing issues with the structure of the mouth, or from behavioral issues like thumb sucking, we have the ability to address them.
Orthodontics at Any Age
Many adults know that they need their teeth straightened but feel too ashamed to have braces placed. Often, they fear the stigma that braces carry and don’t want to have to deal with unsightly teeth straightening appliances. We have the ability to straighten your teeth without the use of braces.

Many parents believe evaluation and treatment by an orthodontist should not be scheduled until after a child has lost all of their baby teeth, usually in the preteen or early teenage years.
