Preparing and Planning

04The initial new patient exam can be a valuable way to gain a significant deal of information. During this appointment, details about the bite, development, growth, and other potential problems present, in addition to information about recommended treatment options from the orthodontist. Of course the dreaded cost/insurance information will also usually be discussed.

It is very common for orthodontists to provide an examination at no charge as a service to their patients. An initial new patient exam is usually quite easy for the patient and nothing to be nervous about. The treatment coordinator will get your basic demographic information, insurance information, and medical information needs to be readily available for the examination. The orthodontist needs this information to better understand the patient’s medical history, and also gives the orthodontist information on the chief concerns of the patient. This is important and crucial since there may be different treatment options available. However, taking care of the main concern should be a top priority.

Following the orthodontist will usually perform an exam using a dental mirror. During the exam, the orthodontist will be looking at the bite, teeth, and jaws for any abnormality and concerns. The initial exam is painless since the teeth are only being observed, and no treatment is generally performed at this appointment.

Once the orthodontist has finished with the examination, the following information should be provided: preliminary diagnosis, preliminary treatment plan, timing of treatment, length of proposed treatment, cost, and possible alternatives. If you have any questions this is the time to ask the orthodontist. Hopefully, the information provided by the orthodontists answered your question. in the case that is doesn’t be sure to ask. The clinical exam should provide enough basic information to provide a preliminary diagnosis and treatment plan.
