If you’ve been thinking about orthodontic treatment for yourself or a loved one, now is a great time to make it happen! The first step to achieving your best smile is to schedule an initial exam and consultation with Dr. Mary Cay and her terrific team.
Learn more about what to expect at your first orthodontist appointment with Mary Cay Koen Orthodontics.
The main aim of your first orthodontist appointment is to assess your dental needs and desires and discuss your treatment options. Many times we can place your braces or scan for Invisalign during your first appointment. We want to be certain that you are comfortable with every aspect of your proposed treatment at the time we start your treatment.
Dr. Koen will do an oral examination to assess your smile needs. Then, using our state-of-the-art iTero 3D images as well as radiographs and photographs, Dr. Koen will discuss her findings and recommendations for treatment options, timing, and duration. Large-scale computer photos will allow Dr. Koen to give you a “tour” of your smile and explain any concerns she has. The iTero scan can also be utilized to give you a prediction of the possible treatment outcome.
Once we’ve determined what orthodontic treatment is right for you, we’ll schedule an appointment so we can place your appliances. Whether you choose Damon System braces or Invisalign, you can trust our team to create your dream smile. On most days it may be possible to start your treatment the same day as your exam. To be able to take advantage of this, be sure that your dental cleaning and any necessary restorative needs have been met.
