The orthodontic world is intimidating to many people. If you are one of these people, our orthodontic team is happy to tell you what to expect during your first orthodontic appointment in Richmond, Virginia, so the experience is less intimidating and more comfortable.

When you come into Richmond Orthodontics and meet with your orthodontist, Dr. Bryan Brassington, Dr. Curt Wiltshire, or Dr. Kevin Bibona, you can expect the following treatment steps:

Step 1: The goal of this first appointment is to see if treatment is needed. So, your orthodontist will thoroughly examine your mouth by taking a series of X-rays and photographs. Then, he will give you an accurate diagnosis and will explain any orthodontic issues you might have.

Step 2: If treatment is necessary, our team will make impressions of your teeth. These impressions will help your orthodontist create a treatment plan just for you. Then, we will review your insurance benefits and will explain your financing options.

Step 3: Lastly, our team will describe the appliance your orthodontist recommends in detail. You will also receive a treatment time estimate.

As you can see, there is nothing to be afraid of during your first orthodontic appointment. For more information and details, please feel free to call our office today at 804-740-7281. We look forward to hearing from you!
