Choosing an orthodontist for your dental work can be difficult. Often you’ll be seeing them for upwards of a year, and so we understand that you want to know how they may approach your braces treatment plan when you’re doing your research.
Below is how we approach your treatment, at Advanced Orthodontic Specialists.
In this first meeting, whether the treatment would be for adult braces or child braces, you’ll meet with a treatment specialist and we’ll take photos of your current smile. This is important for us to understand the extent of treatment needed, as well as giving us a starting point should treatment commence. In this meeting, we’ll also run through a custom quote and the payment options we provide, so you’re in the know from step one.
Taking Your Wants Into Consideration
Whether you’re looking for retainer-style aligners, clear braces or traditional braces, we want to know. Of course, your orthodontists recommend specific treatment plans that will help you achieve straight teeth effectively, but your smile is ultimately yours. We want you to be confident and happy with the treatment.
Development of a Plan
Now comes the fun part – this is where your orthodontist takes the extent of the treatment needed, your wants and your goals all into consideration to build your custom treatment plan.
This has to include a range of variables, from the eruption pattern and extent of crooked teeth, the shape of the face and jaw, and then all of your goals and wants. Whether the treatment is for an adult or still-developing child will affect this too.
And finally – treatment will begin. This is where your braces will be fitted, or you’ll receive your custom, 3D printed aligners. From here, the frequency that you visit the office will depend on your unique plan – but here at Advanced Orthodontic Specialists, we pride ourselves on keeping you out of the chair and enjoying your life as much as possible.
