About Your Treatment At Your Orthodontist – Surrey, BC
Our orthodontic treatment is individually tailored to the needs of each patient because like a snowflake, everyone is unique. Your orthodontic treatment plan is optimized to give you the most brilliant smile, and therefore, it will vary from patient to patient. What doesn’t vary is our level of care because we always take the time to sit down with you and guide you through every step of the process so that you fully understand the why’s and how’s of your treatment.
Consultation and Assessment
The first step is the initial consultation. This is where we get to meet you! We’ll talk about your expectations, your dental health history, and take a digital x-ray to get a better, more in-depth picture of your teeth and jaw. Regardless of your needs and which treatment option you end up choosing, we want you to feel comfortable. So please ask us any questions you might have because that’s what we’re here for. It’s all about you, after all.
Check-Ins and Check Ups
It is important that after you begin treatment we schedule regular appointments so we can keep track of your progress. We’ll look at how well your teeth are responding to the treatment, and also make any necessary adjustments, along with giving you all you’ll need to know about the maintenance of your braces or Invisalign aligners.
Orthodontics for Children
The Canadian Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have their first orthodontic check-up at the age of 7. This first initial visit can help identify and diagnose many orthodontic issues, and starting earlier can help young patients with their developing teeth by creating more space and can sometimes turn more complex cases that would normally involve extraction into an easier expansion case instead.
