Brightening Lives With New Smiles

What to Expect from Your Orthodontist Consultation

Have you been dealing with alignment issues? Maybe you have a child whose adult teeth are starting to come in. Either way, the journey to a healthier mouth and a happier smile begins with one thing: an orthodontic consolation.  

The best part is, here at Dhingra Orthodontics, your initial consultation is free! 

But many people wonder what exactly happens during the consultation? You might be worried it’s a veiled sales pitch or something like that. Don’t worry, that is not the purpose of an orthodontic consultation. So what is the purpose? Ultimately, it’s to learn your history, understand your goals, and create a plan that will work best for your needs. 

What exactly does that look like? Allow us to break it down for you… 

Your Initial Orthodontic Consolation 

It begins with a little bit of your history. We review your dental and medical forms. While there aren’t many medical red flags in the world of orthodontics, it never hurts to check. 

Next, we’ll perform an oral exam. This includes a visual inspection, along with x-rays to determine where your currently at and what treatments will work best. Once we know that, we’ll explain the options available and start to form a plan based on your situation. 

We’ll also discuss the correlating financial information, including insurance options and available payment plans.  

Once you’ve decided how you would like to proceed, we can begin the actual treatment.  

What happens next can depend on the type of treatment you’ve chosen. If you’ve chosen traditional bracket braces, you’ll have them applied to your teeth. This typically takes about an hour. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure it’s comfortable experience for you. 

If you’re receiving Invisalign, we’ll scan and create a 3D model of your teeth. This will be used to create the different sets of trays you’ll be switching between during your treatment. 

Whatever type of orthodontic treatment you choose, you’re in good hands with Dhingra Orthodontics. For an orthodontist in Beavercreek, Ohio and surrounding area, schedule your consultation at one of our locations today!
