Why get orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is concerned with more than just the cosmetic change of straightening teeth. Orthodontic appliances, braces, and other treatments that we provide improve oral health and function, create a beautiful smile, and increase self-confidence and self-esteem.
When to get treatment?
Children and Adults of all ages can benefit from orthodontic care. It is recommended that every child have an orthodontic consultation by age 7. Early diagnosis and treatment of growing children can maximize dental and facial improvements with the least amount of time and expense.
How to Start Treatment?
First Visit: Initial Exam and Consultation (complimentary)
Dr. Song will do an exam to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary and when treatment should begin. He will discuss preliminary findings with you and address any of your questions and concerns. An estimate of the time and fee investment will be given.
Second Visit: Diagnostic Records
If orthodontic treatment is needed, complete diagnostic records (radiographs (x-rays), study models of teeth, and photographs) will be taken in order to properly diagnose and treat the patient.
