If you’re wondering what to expect during your first orthodontic treatment, then our Nyberg Orthodontics team is more than happy to help you!

Your first appointment should only be about two hours long, and it should involve the following steps:

Step 1: First, your orthodontist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine if you need treatment. If you do need treatment, the examination will help your orthodontist know where to start. The exam will include taking X-rays and photographs of your mouth. Your orthodontist will explain any alignment issues you have.

Step 2: Your orthodontist will then take a series of impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to help create an individualized treatment plan just for you. Once you hear your treatment plan, we will review your insurance benefits and go over your financing options.

Step 3: Next, the recommended appliance, like braces, clear aligners, and retainers, will be described to you in detail. We will also give you an idea of how long it’ll take you to reach your dream smile.

Your first orthodontist appointment in Dover, New Hampshire, should be simple, easy, and painless. If you would like to know more or if you have any questions, please feel free to call today and talk to Dr. Lynnette Nyberg or a member of our friendly orthodontic team. We are happy to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to hearing from you!
