The American Association of Orthodontists states that more than one million Americans are wearing braces!
Thanks to the advances in technology, adults and children are able to correct the appearance of their smile, due to a variety of orthodontic procedures and treatment plans. When it pertains to this specialized dental field, the question that most adults and children have is: What should I expect when visiting an orthodontist for the first time?
After Dr. Varghese completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS), he proceeded to become an orthodontist, completing an additional 2 years of schooling at Marquette University, specializing in Orthodontia. Orthodontists are highly skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced dental professionals that help patients improve the appearance of their mouth by achieving straighter and healthier teeth, leading to beautiful smiles!
THE INITIAL VISIT
The priority of an orthodontist is to help you and your children achieve the goal of having straight and healthy teeth. The appearance of a person’s teeth has a huge influence on their smile, and statistics have shown that 83% of people believe their teeth are more important to their appearance than hair and eyes!
During your initial visit to Varghese Orthodontics, we will:
▪ Review your medical history forms.
▪ Perform an oral exam, along with an x-ray (only if Dr. Varghese requests for diagnostic reasons); this will help us determine if treatment is possible.
▪ Determine what type of treatment plan works best for your dental needs.
▪ Discuss the costs of treatment, in addition to all financial information, including your insurance options and the various types of payment plans that are available.
During your complimentary consultation, we will ask about your desires for treatment. Again, your input is valued from start-to-finish. After we hear your desires, we let you know what realistic expectations you should have about your entire orthodontic experience.
WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME FOR KIDS TO VISIT THE ORTHODONTIST?
Dr. Varghese recommends an evaluation at the age of 7. At this time, Dr. Varghese will know what problems exist, and he can determine the best time for your child to begin treatment, if needed, as we can detect major issues at an earlier age, to avoid extractions of permanent teeth and the likelihood of more invasive procedures later in life.
