At your first visit to our office, Dr. Lowe will evaluate your orthodontic needs and review the potential treatment options. If treatment is indicated, you will usually be scheduled for an orthodontic records appointment during which more detailed information can be gathered to help determine the best course of treatment for you.
Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, digital scans of your teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and digital X-rays (which are extremey low radiation and very safe). This appointment takes approximately one hour and it is non-invasive and essentially painless. The information we gather is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. The records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
After Dr. Lowe has evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) or start your Invisalign treatment usually takes 1 to 2 hours. You’ll see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us as soon as reasonably possible.
