Prepare for an Orthodontic Consultation

Aligning your teeth and your jaw can improve your oral health, as well as give you the beautiful smile of your dreams. To determine how you can enhance your smile with orthodontic treatment, you should first schedule a consultation with an orthodontist.

To feel more comfortable and to increase the efficiency of your appointment, it can be useful to know what will occur during your initial visit. Dr. Scott McElroy, an orthodontist practicing in San Ramon, CA, describes what you can expect during an orthodontic consultation.

Oral Health Evaluation

Our practice utilizes a comprehensive approach in orthodontics. This means that we consider your oral health overall before, during, and after your treatment. Though you may visit your orthodontist to straighten your smile, we will also consider the wellbeing of your teeth, gums, and jaw.

You can experience oral health benefits with orthodontic treatment as well as aesthetic enhancement. We prioritize conservative treatment options, so you can be sure that we will propose only the orthodontics that suit your unique needs.

Individualized Smile Design

Every smile is different, and our practice understands that each patient will need a unique orthodontic strategy for their smile. Our team applies modern diagnostic equipment and tools to help us determine the best treatment for you.

Using digital impressions, we can show patients potential problems in their smiles as well as how our orthodontic solutions can help them achieve the smile of their dreams. We maintain open communication about upcoming treatment so that patients know what to expect and can feel comfortable in our office.

Advanced Orthodontic Treatments

With a treatment plan in place, you work with our staff to schedule your orthodontic procedures. You might need to schedule an in-office procedure, like if you need to get braces placed on your teeth. Other dental patients may need to pick up their orthodontic tools, as with Invisalign.

Orthodontic treatment can last for an extended period of time, often several months or more than a year. You will likely need to schedule check-up visits with your orthodontist, but our team can be flexible with your busy lifestyle.
