The purpose of the first meeting is to find out what you want, to discuss treatment options, to examine teeth, jaw, their position and how mastication is done.
During the first treatment session we will find out the motivation of the visit, and perform the diagnostic photos and dental fingerprints along with the X-rays (panoramic and profile teleradiology) that provide us with both orthodontic information and information on the general condition of tooth health.
This process may take between 15 and 30 minutes and will be performed during the same visit.
We will need you to fill out an observation sheet to perform a preliminary assessment of your history.
If x-rays or recent models have been made, it would be useful if you could bring them to the first visit or if the attending dentist/previous orthodontist doctor can provide them to us.
The general situation can already be evaluated during the first meeting. If further investigations are needed, such as: Special X-rays, tomographs, or 3D jaw models, we can recommend them. To provide you with an estimate cost, we will provide you with the necessary data and schedule a second meeting.
During this meeting we will need time to discuss the detailed assessment of your data, and then to present your treatment plan and estimated costs.
We will discuss together the conclusions of our specialists and come up with a treatment plan for you.
The orthodontic conclusions reached by our specialists are examined and the possibilities for treatment are described and explained. You are also informed of the costs of each treatment phase.
The final decision must not be taken immediately. Please consider our treatment proposals carefully before taking a decision.
