What to expect at your child’s orthodontic consultation appointment:
If you or your dentist has any concerns with your or your child’s bite, it is a good idea to have a consultation with the orthodontist. The orthodontic consultation appointment is a stress-free and easy appointment. The orthodontist and his team will discuss any concerns you may have regarding your or your child’s teeth and will do an exam of the jaws and teeth. Typically, they will also need to take a few X-rays and photos. Once the exam and x-rays have been done, the orthodontist will discuss with you any problems he sees as well as what the best treatment options are. Once you have discussed treatment options with the orthodontist, you can decide what treatment would be the best fit for you and your family. The goal of the consultation appointment is to make sure you are aware of any orthodontic concerns, address any concerns you have identified yourself, and inform you of the best treatment options available. We look forward to meeting you and working with you to decide what treatment options will work best for you!
