Deciding to undergo orthodontic treatment can be daunting. We are thrilled that you have taken the opportunity to enhance how you look and feel through braces! At Chelian Orthodontics, we are here to help maximize the potential of your teeth and leave you with a radiant smile that you will love.
Your first visit is aimed at getting an understanding of your oral health and teeth positioning. We will review your medical history and conduct a thorough exam, with x-rays, to get a comprehensive look at your mouth. This will help us decide whether or not orthodontic treatment is necessary. If so, we can discuss various options and decide which one is right for you! We will listen to your financial needs and create a plan that is catered to your specific needs. This is the first step towards your new smile!
After your initial consultation, you will make an appointment with our orthodontist to begin treatment. Your next visit will be used to install your orthodontic appliances, and our staff will be here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. This appointment usually takes about an hour.
Regular visits to the office are very important in order to stay on schedule with your treatment. You should come in every four to eight weeks to have adjustments and tightening made to your appliances. We are here to work with your schedule, so please let us know what days and times are best for you! If something comes up, just give us a call. We will try our best to make changes to your appointment or reschedule.
It is important to visit your regular dentist during this time as well. Your oral health can be compromised if you don’t clean your braces properly, so make sure you make appointments with a general dentist too! They are usually scheduled every six months to ensure your teeth are staying clean.
