Orthodontic evaluations are helpful for adults as well as children. Since making the decision to great treatment for misaligned teeth and jaws is an important one, it’s crucial that you have the opportunity to go over the options, get all your questions answered, and make sure that you are moving in the right direction. Here at Quinn, Mariotti and Abod Orthodontics, we are pleased to offer this service so that you will feel relaxed and at ease while making a determination.
Typically, an evaluation at our Kingston orthodontic office takes about 45 minutes or so, and it is comprehensive. We take a medical history and discuss what your needs and preferences are so that the most appropriate form of treatment can be identified and implemented. Some of the considerations that are taken into account are the complexity of your specific teeth positioning issues, and whether you have a problem with being seen wearing braces (invisible options are available). Using state-of-the-art testing, our Kingston orthodontic office assesses if you have any physical obstacles that could make wearing braces a problem. For example, if you have gum disease or a jaw condition like TMJ disorder, fractured teeth, or impacted wisdom teeth, those concerns may need to be addressed in advance of orthodontic treatment. Choice of braces is also based on your budget, and what your insurance may or may not cover. One thing is for certain, which is that each and every one of our valued patients is a unique individual. That’s why we tailor a treatment plan specifically for you or your child, so that the outcome is the one you want: a smile that is healthy, free of discomfort, and that you are proud to show off.
