Your First Orthodontic Appointment: What to Expect

Your First Orthodontic Appointment: What to Expect

Are you wondering what to expect during your first orthodontic appointment? If so, our West Cobb Orthodontics team is more than happy to help you!

When you come into our office and meet with your orthodontist, Dr. Brenna Christensen , you will experience the following steps in about a two-hour appointment:

Step 1: The first step will be to determine if treatment is needed. Your orthodontist will make that determination by thoroughly examining your smile, which should involve taking a series of X-rays and photographs. Then, she will give you a diagnosis and will recommend a course of action.

Step 2: Next, she will make impressions of your teeth and jaws if you do indeed need treatment. These impressions will help determine an individualized treatment plan. Then, our team will review your insurance benefits and inform you on your financing options.

Step 3: Finally, our team will describe the appliance that we recommend using, whether it’s a clear aligner, braces, or a retainer. We will also tell you how long you should expect to go through treatment.

Your first appointment should be simple, easy, and painless. If you have any questions or if you would like more details about your first orthodontic appointment in Kennesaw, Georgia, please call (678) 401-4321 today and talk to a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you!
