What kind of tests will be conducted at the first appointment ?
Once we are certain that orthodontic treatment is required, we conduct some tests and examinations to create a set of diagnostic records that guide your treatment.
These may include the following:
- Digital photographs of the teeth and face.
- Digital X-rays to determine the position of teeth, jaws and soft tissues.
- Digital Study Casts of the teeth to determine tooth size and analyse the functional relationship between the teeth.
We constantly invest in the latest technology: your treatment plan is guided by state of the art 3-D digital imaging and scanning, digital photographs and x-rays at no additional cost. These tests are all conveniently carried out on site, within our practice, immediately allowing us to plan your treatment to the highest standards.
