Initial appointments are scheduled during the morning or early afternoon to allow the Doctor sufficient time to do a thorough examination and discuss his findings with you. Usually this examination will result in 1 of 3 outcomes.
- The patient is not ready, or may require tooth eruption guidance (i.e. Primary tooth extractions and/or space maintainers) and is placed in recall to be seen at a later date.
- The orthodontic treatment will be of a limited nature at this time and appointments can be made for impressions and fitting of appliances.
- If comprehensive orthodontic treatment is indicated, full diagnostic records will be needed. These records will need to be scheduled for another day, to be followed a few weeks later by a parent consultation.
