Our initial orthodontic evaluation assesses whether or not a problem exists and immediately we will have in mind some treatment modalities based on what we see at that time based on our special knowledge and experience. We would then advise of you of the orthodontic problem, approximate treatment time and costs, as well as whether to go further with orthodontic records. These records include orthodontic specific xrays, photographs, and impressions for plaster casts of your teeth. The diagnostic records are the standard of care necessary for intense study of a particular patient’s situation. This study leads to a final diagnosis and appropriate treatment that we will present to you.
After the presentation, you can decide whether to proceed. Our job is to inform you of your unique situation as everybody and every case is different.
