Dr. Nick will perform an in-depth clinical exam, in order to evaluate of the bite, dental and skeletofacial growth, and an airway assessment. We will discuss what you hope to gain through treatment, and answer all your questions and concerns. Our office utilizes a one-step process, with the Consultation at the same visit as the the Initial Visit, in order to to create an individualized treatment plan, if treatment is required. This is done in order to save you an additional trip to the office.
One of three decisions will be made at this visit:
- The patient is not ready for orthodontic treatment, and is placed into an observation “KIDS CLUB” status. We will schedule a future appointment to carefully monitor the patient’s growth and development.
- An Early/Interceptive Orthodontic treatment Phase is recommended, in order to correct aberrant development of the teeth/jaw growth, as well as to assist in developing a favorable airway volume. Appropriate appointments will be made.
- Comprehensive Orthodontics (Braces), Invisalign Teen, or Invisalign Treatment will be recommended. Appropriate appointments will be made.
