What Is The Sequence Of Treatment?
After the initial contact has been made, the office will collect information such as phone number, address, e-mail, fax and relevant insurance information during the records appointment. This will also allow the office or Dr. Corbett to contact the patient when needed. At the initial appointment, Dr. Corbett will examine the patient and determine if there is a need for orthodontic intervention. He will review and explain the basic problem or malocclusion with the patient as well as the risks and benefits of doing such treatment. Once the patient is comfortable and informed about his or her orthodontic situation, Dr. Corbett will set up appointments to get records and begin the tooth straightening process.
The records, consisting of x-rays, models of the teeth and gums, photographs and thorough examination will provide Dr. Corbett with the necessary information to diagnose and treatment plan your case properly so that he can achieve the perfect smile you have always wanted. The patient is then scheduled for a bonding appointment, at which time Dr. Corbett will place the new braces, brackets and wires. This appointment will take one hour, with half the time allocated for placement of the new braces and the other half dedicated to patient homecare and how best to care for your new orthodontic appliances, teeth and gums.
Dr. Corbett likes to personally call all his "newly bonded" patients the first night to make sure they are okay and that all questions have been answered and makes his personal phone number available so patients can contact him directly if need be. However, it is rare that this happens.
If you are interested in inquiring about straight teeth or any other orthodontic problem you may have please let us know and we will be happy to help. You can achieve that healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted.
