What to Expect on Your First Orthodontist Appointment

So you’ve scheduled your first orthodontist appointment, and you’re preparing for a life-changing new smile? That’s something to be REALLY excited about!

Before you show up for your complimentary consultation and exam, you may have a few questions about the process: “What happens at the first orthodontist appointment? What can I expect?”

We’re here to break it all down - no surprises. Here are four things you can expect at your orthodontist consultation with Dr. Bolin and our experienced team.

1. Dr. Bolin will examine your smile.

When you first visit our Wilton orthodontist office, Dr. Bolin will become your personal orthodontist who you’ll see at every visit. You’ll meet Dr. Bolin and get to know a little bit about each other.

Dr. Bolin will perform a visual exam of your smile and we’ll take a digital x-ray (if we haven’t received your x-rays from your dentist), and a video of your teeth (iTero scan) to gain the full picture of your teeth, gums and jaw bones.

Dr. Bolin will use all of this information (from your visual exam, digital x-rays and scan) to create your personalized treatment plan.

2. You’ll choose your ideal treatment.

At your first orthodontic appointment, we’ll present our treatment options to you and help you choose the one that best suits your lifestyle. Dr. Bolin has the experience necessary to treat you with your preferred treatment option.

We’re proud to be the only orthodontist in the area providing state-of-the-art LightForce 3D-Printed braces! We also offer Invisalign® and 3M™ Clarity™ clear aligners for all ages, clear ceramic braces and traditional metal braces.

Staying up-to-date with the latest treatments and technologies enables us to shorten your treatment time, reduce in-office visits and minimize discomfort!

3. We’ll create a payment plan that suits your needs.

We believe everyone deserves high-quality orthodontic care, regardless of their financial situation. We create custom financing plans based on our patients’ individual needs.

Our treatment coordinator will discuss our 0%-interest in-house financing plan and match you with any discount opportunities (pay-in-full discount or family member discount.) We create flexible financing plans with down payments as low as $270!

4. You begin treatment.

Once your treatment and financing plans are squared away, the next step is transforming your smile.

If you choose LightForce 3D printed braces or clear aligners, Dr. Bolin will take quick digital scans of your smile, then send these scans off for your custom treatment to be designed and printed!

Each LightForce bracket is custom-designed for your specific tooth, and every Invisalign/3M clear aligner tray is custom-designed for your smile.

Once your treatment is ready, you’ll have your braces placed by Dr. Bolin, or pop your aligners in place, and watch your smile transform over the coming months.
