The orthodontic treatment process

What can you expect when you have orthodontic treatment? It all depends on what kind of treatment you need. At your first appointment, pictures and radiographic (X-ray) images of your mouth are usually taken, along with impressions of your teeth, so a model of your bite can be made. Our orthodontists will use this information to develop a treatment plan. It may involve regular braces, with or without elastics (rubber bands), or Invisalign® clear aligners. A specialized appliance may also be recommended for a period of time. Discover the best type of braces for you by booking a free consultation at Creekview & McKinney Orthodontics.
