3. Diagnostic records

We take several diagnostic records to assist with the ongoing orthodontic program. These include x-rays of your child’s teeth, photographs of their current positions and a comprehensive clinical examination. This examination allows us to take detailed measurements of your child’s teeth, mouth and features.

These detailed records allow us to create a treatment plan down to the smallest details of tooth position, even when your child is not in our offices. This way we do not need to schedule additional appointments simply for measurements and fittings. These records form the basis upon which we can build a treatment plan.
