What To Expect During Your First Visit At Harner Orthodonticscheck up

Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination of your current oral health and smile, so we can determine what orthodontic treatment will be necessary. After the examination is completed, you and one of our orthodontists will discuss your potential treatment options, whether that's clear braces, Invisalign, or adult braces. You can expect your first appointment to take about 60 minutes. To expedite your treatment moving forward, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records, such as x-ray, photos, and impressions necessary for your treatment plan. Taking these records will take about an additional 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Orthodontic Questions

During the initial discussion of your personal treatment plan, we will cover the following frequently asked questions about orthodontic treatment:

  • Do I have a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should it be delayed? (Due to necessary growth, tooth eruption, or other factors).
  • 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?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of your diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze your specific needs and create an individualized treatment plan customized for you.

If you have any questions about your treatment plan, we encourage you to ask at any time. Whether you are a teen or an adult, we want you to have a clear understanding of your treatment before you leave our office. Feel free to ask as many questions about our Huntington Beach office, clear braces, Invisalign or adult braces.
