Treatment Sequence

 

New Patient Exam


 

The first appointment is a "get acquainted" visit for all of us. After completing the necessary forms, the patient will be examined by the doctor. A preliminary explanation of the problem will be given plus information on what the next steps in treatment will be.

 

Diagnostic Records


 

A complete set of diagnostic records will be taken at this appointment. These will consist of necessary orthodontic x-rays, impressions for models of the teeth, and photographs. Dr. Lang will review these records and complete a treatment plan. A consultation appointment is the next step.

 

Case Presentation


 

It is preferable that both parents and child be present for the consultation. Analysis of the problem involved and the corrective treatment necessary will be shown in detail. An explanation will be given with regard to any appliances to be uses during treatment and the patient's responsibilities in the use and care of the appliance. The total treatment fee will be given along with various methods of payment. The consultation appointment provides you with all of the information you need to begin your orthodontic treatment.

 

Separation


 

This is a short appointment at which separating elastics will be placed between the teeth to aid in the banding procedure. This procedure can be done at the consultation appointment if desired.

 

Placement of the Braces


 

The "banding" appointment will be approximately an hour and a half. After the banding appointment, the patient will be seen monthly for adjustment of the braces.

 

Debanding


 

When the treatment is completed, the braces will be removed and retainers placed.

 

Retainer adjustments


 

We will see you for retainer adjustment for two years after debanding.
