During your first visit to our office, we will examine you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for orthodontic treatment. The examination may require X-rays to diagnose your orthodontic needs properly.
If Dr. Taylor feels you are ready for orthodontic treatment, we will set up an appointment to obtain complete orthodontic records. Diagnostic records are made to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, plaster study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays.
This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful for tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
