Your First Orthodontic Visit

Your first visit to Elevated Orthodontics is an exciting time for all of us! This is our opportunity to get to know you and your opportunity to learn about the treatments and services we provide. When you first enter our office, you may notice that it looks similar to your regular dentist’s office, but what we do here is very different. Everything begins with your initial consultation.

At your first visit, our orthodontist and team need to determine what type of treatment is necessary to correct any problems you may have and when that treatment should begin. Some patients will need to begin treatment right away while others may benefit from beginning treatment at a later date. We will begin by taking a series of photographs and X-rays to capture images of your teeth. These images help us view:

  • The positions and growth of your bones and joints.
  • The positions of your teeth and tooth roots.
  • Any teeth below the gumline that have not yet erupted.

We will also take a scan of your teeth that will allow us to visualized an exact replica of your teeth and bite! All of these images and photographs will help Dr. Anika Rodgers understand your exact orthodontic needs and how to provide your treatment.

Following the imaging process, Dr. Rodgers will carefully look at the photos and X-rays and perform a thorough examination of your mouth. We will also discuss your oral health and function with you, asking questions such as whether or not your jaws make noise when you open and close your mouth or if you have any problems chewing or swallowing. Dr. Rodgers can then make a diagnosis and finalize your treatment plan.

If you do need orthodontic care, we may begin your treatment that same day or at a later time, depending on the developmental stage of your teeth and jaws.

Let’s Make a Plan

We have five essential questions to discuss with you during your initial consultation:

  1. Is there an orthodontic problem? If so, what is it?
  2. What needs to be done to correct that problem?
  3. Should any teeth be extracted?
  4. How long will orthodotnic treatment take?
  5. How much will orthodontic treatment cost?

By the time you leave our office, you should have a thorough understanding of your orthodontic needs and treatment plan. We encourage you to ask questions — we want you to feel completely comfortable and confident in the care we provide.
