All You Need to Know About Your First Orthodontic Appointment

Posted .

If you’re about to visit your orthodontist, Dr. John Toenjes, to see if you need orthodontic treatment, then our orthodontic team is more than happy to tell you what you can expect during your appointment!

When you come into Drs. Toenjes, Brizzee and Orme, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: To begin, your orthodontist will determine if you need treatment, and, if so, where to start. Your orthodontist will make this determination after taking a series of X-rays and photographs. When finished, they will give a diagnosis and explain the alignment issues you have.

Step 2: If you do indeed need treatment, impressions of your teeth will be taken. These impressions will help your orthodontist create a treatment plan just for you and your smile. This is when we will review your insurance benefits and explain your financing options and payment plans.

Step 3: The recommended appliance, like braces, clear aligners, and retainers, will be described to you in detail. We will also give you an idea of how long it’ll take you to reach your dream smile.

As you can see, your first appointment will be simple, easy, and painless. If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more about your first orthodontic appointment in St. Anthony, Idaho, please call our office today at 208-624-3757. We are more than happy to help you in any way we can!
