Your first visit to Caponera Orthodontics

Your First Visit

At your first visit to our office, the doctor examines your teeth and takes any necessary records to determine the type of treatment you may need including treatment time, the type of appliances and the cost treatment. If you decide to have treatment at our office a more detailed set of diagnostic records are made to further determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, iTero scan of the teeth, photos of the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care. After the doctor has evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail.

The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes 1 hour. You'll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 10 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 10 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
