Your First Visit
First impressions matter, and that’s why we are dedicated to giving you professional and friendly service from day one. We are proud to give our patients the amazing smile they all deserve.
We encourage our orthodontic patients to ask any questions that you may have along the way, as it is an important part in determining the treatment that is right for you.
Step 1: Initial Consultation
Just like any other doctor, we want to understand what your medical and dental history is. We will perform a visual examination and give you a tentative treatment plan with associated costs.
Step 2: Diagnosis and Treatment Plan
Once you are ready to be a patient at PacificWest, we will take x-rays of your teeth and jaw structure to accurately determine and analyze the appropriate treatment for you. We will present the finalized plan to you.
Step 3: Begin Treatment
Now the exciting part begins! We will schedule your first few appointments and begin working on your perfect smile.
While the type of treatment and severity of the issue determines the length of treatment, the usual treatment time for full braces ranges between 18 to 30 months. For this type of treatment, visits of four to eight week intervals are required to adjust your braces to ensure the most successful results of your treatment.
