Nothing shakes the smiling heart – Santish Kalwar
Do you know that your smile is like a ray of sunshine in another person’s day? Think about the people you feel are most attractive or who you enjoy encountering over the course of a day. Chances are their smile is one of the main features you notice and appreciate about those individuals. If your smile could use some work to become more noteworthy and uplifting, consider getting an orthodontic consultation, which includes the following steps.
First, you will be scheduled for an initial consultation.
At this appointment, the orthodontic staff will discuss your interest and concern in having your teeth adjusted and corrected. They will explain what their practice offers, and you will meet with the orthodontist to discuss treatment options in more detail.
Next, you will be given evaluative tests and x-rays.
After an oral examination, your mouth will be x-rayed to determine the scope of the problems and to identify other issues that may need to be addressed as well. These findings will be compared with any information, notes, or x-rays sent by a referring dentist, if applicable. Other tests or evaluations may be ordered, such as a periodontal exam, to evaluate potential contributing issues.
Third, you will be offered a corrective plan of treatment.
Upon completion and review of the tests, the orthodontist will present a plan of treatment to address the issues. This will include an estimated timeline, which is subject to change based on variable conditions, and the braces that will be used to correct various issues with the teeth. Invisalign, a type of braces that is near invisible to observers, may be explained as an option, along with other types of treatment, as well.
