First Appointment: Clinical diagnostics
At the first appointment, you describe the problem and we take a picture to record orthodontic information and provide ourselves with an impression of the general dental health of your child. If X-rays are necessary to assess the situation, these can be taken quickly with our low-radiation digital X-ray system and evaluated immediately. The general situation can be assessed already during the first appointment.
If an orthodontic treatment is desired, further diagnostic material is required. This can be gathered immediately; depending on the findings and available material, this process takes 5 to 25 minutes. Alternatively, you can make another appointment for this work. Our physicians evaluate all X-rays and models in detail.
If a cost estimate for your health insurance company is required, the treatment plan must be submitted first. We will prepare this submission.
Second Appointment: Orthodontic treatment plan
At your next appointment, the therapy options are presented. If you then decide to undergo treatment in our practice, we submit the plan to your health insurance company. As soon as we get a response we contact you and treatment can begin.
