Your First Visit to Your Orthodontist in Powell
Once we’ve checked you in, you’ll get to meet your/your child’s orthodontist, and Dr. Jeff, Dr. Jen, or Dr. Soo will begin the visit by asking you about your goals. “What brought you to our office today? What do you hope to accomplish with orthodontics?” They’ll then perform a thorough exam and take some X-rays and scans of the mouth. Afterward, they’ll go over your/your child’s treatment options, and once you and your orthodontist in Powell have agreed on a care plan moving forward, we’ll help you iron out the financial details so the treatment fits comfortably into your budget.
Beginning Treatment After Your First Visit
After your initial consultation, we’ll schedule you or your child to begin treatment in the near future. For children receiving braces, we can often get them started on the same day as their consultation! Applying braces usually takes about an hour. For patients who are getting Invisalign, we’ll take a digital impression during the first visit, and this will be sent to an Invisalign lab so the aligners can be made. They’re usually ready within a few weeks, and you’ll be asked to return to our office so we can show you how to put them on, clean them, and answer any questions you might have.
Progress Appointments Throughout Treatment
At Shirck Orthodontics, we won’t simply start a patient on a treatment and only see them when it’s finished. Whether someone has braces or Invisalign, we’ll recommend that they come to see their orthodontist in Powell at regular intervals so they can make sure someone’s treatment is on track. This way, they can make any adjustments necessary along the way.
We’re also happy to schedule sudden emergency appointments in case an appliance is damaged, lost, or is causing discomfort. We’re always here when you need us, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have a question or need any help throughout your orthodontic journey!
The Importance of Regular Dental Visits
It’s very important that a patient maintain their routine checkups and cleanings with their dentist in Powell throughout their orthodontic treatment. While home oral hygiene is relatively easy with Invisalign, it can be more challenging for a child with braces, so these professional cleanings are tremendously helpful! These appointments also give your dentist a chance to spot any potential issues early that could throw off the treatment time if ignored.
