TAKING DIAGNOSTIC RECORDS
When your decision to undertake the proposed treatment will be made, a second appointment will then be scheduled for taking the diagnostic data. A full and thorough examination will be carried out (study models, photographs, panoramic x-rays, cephalometric and / or 3D radiography) in order to complete the diagnosis and the clinical file.
This appointment will allow us to be able to carefully analyze your needs, the treatment options we can offer you and plan your treatment in detail by choosing the best option for your specific case.
This very thorough examination can be done quickly. In general, in the week following your consultation, diagnostic records can be carried out and your appliances installed in the following 2 to 3 weeks.
The installation appointment of orthodontic appliances is between forty-five (45) minutes and two (2) hours depending on the type of device.
Thereafter, the appointments will be fixed at regular intervals of six (6) to ten (10) weeks so that we can make the necessary adjustments to insure a good progression of your treatment.
These Appointment are of twenty (20) to thirty (30) minutes duration.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, you are requested to notify us at least 48 hours in advance.
