Scheduling Your Visit for Orthodontics in Oviedo
Scheduling an appointment to meet with Dr. Kapadia is the first step in this process. You’ll have a chance to view the practice, meet the doctor and team, and ask any questions you may have. At this complimentary visit, Dr. Kapadia will evaluate you or your child’s orthodontic needs and determine if the patient is ready to begin treatment. Different treatment options and the approximate fee for treatment will also be reviewed.
The Records Appointment and Treatment Conference
After the initial consultation, all the information that is needed in diagnosis and treatment planning is collected. This includes photos, x-rays, and impressions of the teeth. Dr. Kapadia will then review all of the information to make a custom plan for your treatment. This plan will be presented in detail during the treatment conference, and you will be able to ask any questions you may have at that time as well.
Placement of Braces
This is one of the most exciting visits! The placement of braces usually takes about an hour. Instructions for taking care of your braces and a take home kit will be given afterward. We’ll also review the do’s and don’ts of taking care of your braces and go over the foods you can and cannot eat as well.
Adjustments and Removal
Once you have your braces, you will be seen for adjustments every 4-6 weeks. The adjustment time usually takes about a half-hour and isn’t very invasive. When the time comes to take the braces off, Dr. Kapadia, will explain the entire process and remove the braces in the least invasive way possible. Retainers will be made to make sure your teeth stay in their new position.
