The Steps of Orthodontic Dental Treatment.
Although orthodontic treatment is customized to meet each person own unique needs, the steps necessary for treatment, remain fairly standard.
First there is Diagnostic and Treatment Planning. This is where the orthodontic dentist will make a diagnosis to determine the most effective way to treat your bite issue.
Next Step is the Active Treatment. Once treatment is determined your active treatment will begin. which may include attaching the appliance, or customizing aligner trays for invisible braces. You will return to your orthodontist’s office several times during this step for adjustments and or for new trays.
Then the last step is Retention. Once your teeth have been realigned, you will require a retainer to ensure your teeth do not shift back into their previous position.
