First Visit

At Nejat Orthodontics, we understand that choosing an orthodontist is a big decision. That’s why we offer complimentary consultations so you can come meet our orthodontist and team to better understand our practice and treatment options.  Wondering what to expect at your first braces consultation?

The Initial Consultation:

Your first visit to our office is aimed at getting an understanding of your oral health and teeth positioning. We will review your medical history and conduct a thorough exam, with X-Rays, to get a comprehensive look at your mouth. This will help us determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary. If so, we’ll discuss the various treatment options, ranging from traditional braces to Invisalign clear aligners and create a plan specific to your needs.  We’ll also discuss the costs and develop a payment plan that works for you.

After Your Consultation:

When you’re ready to begin treatment, you’ll make an appointment to have your braces installed or Invisalign aligners ordered. Don’t worry, our staff is here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Traditionally, your braces appointment lasts about an hour.

Follow Up Appointments:

Once you start your braces or Invisalign treatment, it’s important to keep regular appointments with our orthodontist to evaluate progress and make any adjustments necessary. Typically these appointments should occur every six to eight weeks throughout treatment. We’ll work with your schedule so please let us know what days and times work best for you!

Also, we want to note that it’s super important to maintain your appointments with your regular dentist as well. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is always important but it’s especially important when you’re wearing braces! Need a dentist? No problem. Just ask us for our recommendations!
