Scheduling an initial braces exam can be scary for anyone at any age. Getting braces isn't a decision to take lightly, even when it's clear there are few other options. The best way to approach the initial exam is to think about it as a way to answer your questions. A dentist can tell you everything you'd want to know about how your teeth are positioned during this simple exam, and why you may want to consider treatment.

Opening Statements

Patients will be expected to provide general information about themselves during a braces exam, including their insurance and medical histories. If you've already received x-rays in the past few months, you should have those available for the dentist to review. Usually, the orthodontist will be looking for the panoramic x-rays as opposed to bitewing x-rays (which are what are often used during general procedures.)

Coming Prepared

The best thing to do before you get to your dentist is to come armed with a list of questions and concerns. This is the time to go into detail about sensitivity, pain, or general discomfort. The dentist can tell you how your jaw, bite, teeth, and gums all work together, and how problems in one area can affect the development of others. The more you tell the dentist, the more likely it is they can recommend the right course of treatment for braces.

Love, love, love the whole staff here! I am being treated for adult orthodontic surgical braces to correct my underbite. Throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, finance/payment, greeting/exit of each appointment, and of course the talented and genuine staff that treat your teeth each time,
We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
