YOUR FIRST VISIT
To learn more about orthodontic options for you or your child, the first step is a consultation. At Zaidi Orthodontics, all orthodontic consultations are free and do not require a commitment to begin treatment.
Dr. Zaidi will consider your goals, along with your clinical need for healthy teeth, gums and joints, when developing your custom care plan. This ensures the fastest and most comfortable treatment, and the strongest results: and before you know it you’ll have an incredible smile to share with confidence!
Your consultation will provide you with the opportunity to meet Dr. Zaidi and discuss any concerns you may have and discover what treatment options are available for you or your child.
We will provide answers to questions such as
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
If you decide to begin orthodontic treatment, the next visit to the office will include a full set of orthodontic records, which include photos, 3D imaging and impressions. We know how important your time is. If you are ready to start your treatment, we will make every effort to get you started that same day.
Periodic visits are an important part of orthodontic treatment. Generally, we will want to see you every 6 to 8 weeks to check your progress and make adjustments to your braces.
LENGTH OF TREATMENT
Braces may be on between 6 to 24 months or longer depending on the age of the patient, the severity of the problem, the patient’s cooperation and the degree of movement needed.
Before any orthodontic treatment, your family dentist should make certain that all cavities have been treated and your gums and underlying bone are free of periodontal disease.
Having a great smile with healthy teeth, gums and jaw is an investment that will reward you for the rest of your life.
