Here is an example of what you can expect from your overall orthodontic experience at OSGB. Keep in mind that no two patients are alike and every smile is different.
1. Your initial visit and courtesy examination
Meet your doctor and treatment coordinator. Undergo a clinical evaluation to determine if it’s the right time for diagnostic records. If diagnostic records are recommended, they could consist of any of the following:
Cephalometric Digital Radiograph
A 2D image that enables an orthodontist to study your upper and lower jaws, and the growth of your jaws as it relates to your treatment.
Panoramic Digital Radiograph
A 2D image that allows the orthodontist to study bone structure, roots, and eruption progress of your teeth.
i-CAT® CBCT (Cone-Beam Computer-Assembled Tomography)
This is an advanced, 3D image. The CBCT image data enables us to generate both cephalometric and panoramic images.
The doctors review the diagnostic records to put together an individualized plan for your next appointment.
