Orthodontic TreatmentDiagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws
As your child grows, another important reason for regular dental checkups is to allow our dentists to monitor development of the permanent teeth and jaws to identify developmental progress that could potentially become a problem later in life. As a standard of care, the pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Center recommend an orthodontic evaluation by our orthodontists at Parkway Orthodontics at age 7. Early minor orthodontic treatment can make later treatment less extensive or unnecessary.
Providing our patients with premier orthodontic dental care drives us to be great. Your well-being is our highest priority, and our goal is to make your orthodontic experience both fun and rewarding.
Every treatment plan is unique
In order to discover your best treatment options, initial appointments include a thorough, 30-minute examination. To accelerate treatment we may also set aside additional time for X-rays, photos and impressions for study models that are essential in developing your unique treatment plan.
During your initial examination, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.
We will then schedule a consultation visit to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. Also, we will answer any additional questions.
