At your first visit to our Lakeland orthodontist office, we make some diagnostic records to determine the best course of treatment. Diagnostic records typically include photos of your face and teeth, as well as x-rays. We use this information to develop a custom treatment plan that’s unique to your needs and goals. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of your treatment as your teeth begin to move and shift into the optimal position.
After we have evaluated your records, we’ll discuss our recommended treatment plan with you in detail.
Your first regular appointment is where the magic really happens. This is when we give you your appliances like braces, expanders, etc. Getting your appliances put on usually takes about an hour. Then, you’ll visit us at regular intervals, about 4 to 8 weeks apart, so that we can look at how your teeth are shifting and make any adjustments needed. This type of appointment takes around 30 minutes.
It’s important to note that patients are only seen by appointment only. We really make every effort to be on time for our patients and so we ask that you do your best to be on time for your appointments. Of course, we get it, life happens. If you know you’re going to be a few minutes late, or need to cancel an existing appointment please notify us as soon as you can.
