Planning For A Straighter Smile

Planning For A Straighter Smile Can you believe that Thanksgiving is already this week? It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2018. Time moves quickly, which makes it important to make plans and follow through with them. When it comes to straightening your smile, the sooner you meet with your orthodontist to create a plan, the sooner you can have a straighter smile. Putting off an orthodontic visit means putting off reaching your smile goals. It’s also important to remember that a properly aligned smile is not just important for cosmetic reasons. A straighter smile is at a lower risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth damage. If you live in Fort Worth, Texas, make a plan to meet with Dr. Cabal to discuss your smile goals.

The Consultation

Your first visit to your orthodontist will typically consist of a thorough examination of your mouth and bite, as well as a discussion about your goals and needs. Your orthodontist will talk to you about the findings of your examination and possible treatment options. The discussion will be a two-way conversation though where you will get to share your goals, preferences, time frames, and financial needs. Follow-up appointments may be needed, but the main goal is to have you leaving with a clear understanding of your needs and options.

Creating a Treatment Plan

Once you and your orthodontist have decided on how to address your smile’s needs, a treatment plan will be created. For example, if you are choosing to straighten your smile with Invisalign® clear aligners, a treatment plan with digital technology can be created. It can give you a visualization of what your smile currently looks like, how it will look during the steps of the treatment, and ultimately, what it can look like at the end of treatment.
