Your First Orthodontic Appointment

Your first orthodontic appointment is the beginning of your journey toward a better looking and healthier smile. Our dentists are going to take great care of your smile and will help prepare you for your orthodontic treatment.

  • Gathering Information – During your initial orthodontic appointment, your dentist will go over the current state of your smile. You will have X-rays taken and may have dental impressions as well. Then, your dentist will examine your teeth. This way, we have all the information necessary to plan out the most effective orthodontic treatment.
  • Planning Your New Smile – Now that we have evaluated your smile, we will go over your orthodontics goals and options. For our younger patients, this most often means traditional metal braces. Dr. Takenaga’s advanced degree in specialized orthodontics means that he can help the most difficult cases. Before your treatment, we will clean your teeth and make sure they’re ready for your braces.
