What Should I Expect At My First Orthodontic Appointment?

Your journey to a new smile starts with one simple step: scheduling your orthodontic consultation. At Razi Orthodontics, we believe in bringing a new smile to all, starting with this first visit. We’ve got the blog for those needing a bit more information on what to expect during their first orthodontic appointment.

Getting to Know Us

Starting your first visit with us at Razi Orthodontics is a big step in anyone’s life. But before you enter our office, we want you to be familiar with exactly who Dr. Razi is. 

Dr. Razi is more than a dentist. He’s an orthodontist who’s put in years of additional training and education to master the art of dental alignments and bite corrections. Whether it’s your child’s first visit or you’re exploring options for yourself, Dr. Razi will craft a plan to create a healthy and happy smile.

Preparing Before Your Consult

When you enter Razi Orthodontics, you’ll be greeted with a warm smile from our friendly team. After arriving, you can relax in our comfortable lounge or play games at our iPad bar. And help yourself to a drink from our beverage station! 

Before your free consultation, we’ll take you on a tour of the practice, where you’ll see our state-of-the-art technology, luxurious treatment chairs, and much more!

Starting On The Right Foot

Your consultation at Razi Orthodontics is where the magic begins. It’s a moment for us to get to know each other and for you to share your smile’s history and dreams. But we’ll also get to know you beyond just being a patient; we’ll get to know a new member of the Razi Orthodontic family.

The process begins with high-quality pictures of your smile and a digital X-ray of your jaws and teeth.

You will meet with our treatment coordinator, who will gather important information about your teeth and smile. Our treatment coordinator is your guide throughout the consultation process.  Dr. Razi and our treatment coordinator will then review these diagnostic records with you to develop a personalized plan to improve your smile.

Your Treatment Options

Now it’s time for one of the biggest moments. Dr. Razi and our team will walk you through the treatment options that are available to you. Let’s go over our full offer of treatments to make you a bit more familiar before the big moment:

  • Metal Braces: Strong, durable, and efficient, metal braces are the baseline for great orthodontic care. With options to add a dash of personality, metal braces are an option for many.
  • Clear Braces: Metal braces’ less noticeable twin clear braces use ceramic components to blend in with your teeth. This provides a more subtle option with the same strength and efficiency as metal braces.
  • Invisalign: A series of custom-made, clear aligners, Invisalign is a treatment that works around you instead of you working around it. You have the option to remove the aligners at any time to make eating, drinking, and cleaning a breeze.

No matter your age or stage in life, we believe there’s a treatment that can create your straight, beautiful smile. From children to adults, we’re proud to provide orthodontic solutions that cater to the needs of every family member.

Wrapping Up Your First Visit

After we explain your treatment options and answer any questions that you may have, you’ll be ready to start your smile experience! For your convenience, we often begin treatment during your first visit. We value your time and will make every effort to accommodate your busy schedule.

Whether you’re starting with Invisalign, metal braces, or clear braces, we’re committed to making your experience as convenient and comfortable as possible. Remember, each step takes you closer to a lifetime of smiles, and all it takes is one consultation.
