We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 30-45 minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time for diagnostic records at the first visit. The records include X-rays and photos that are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan.

We are a completely digital practice. We no longer use any mouthfuls of goo. We now have the most up to date 3D digital scanner to create a 3D digital image of your teeth when needed.

During the initial examination for each patient, Dr. Muse will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

Our orthodontic services can help straighten teeth and correct any misalignment issues that a patient is struggling with. Crooked teeth or an overbite can trap plaque in hard to reach places and be difficult to reach with a toothbrush. We can help to correct these issues and benefit the patients oral health. Historically, orthodontic treatment has been for children. But now, adults can benefit greatly from orthodontic treatment as well.
