We look forward to meeting you on your first orthodontic visit to Luv Braces. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic visit is complimentary and will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment.
During the initial consultation, we discuss and decide on your treatment options, duration of treatment, cost of the treatment and treatment timeline. Treatment time will vary depending on the case.
Before braces are placed, patients must visit a dentist for an exam and have any necessary fillings. Patients should visit the dentist every 6 months for a thorough examination and cleaning. Before each orthodontic appointment, patients are encouraged to brush their teeth. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided in the office.
Your appointments are scheduled to fit your busy lifestyle. Our staff makes every effort to accommodate each patient’s schedule. In order to help us continue to schedule efficiently, we alternate morning and afternoon appointments. A 24 hour notice is required to cancel an orthodontic appointment.
Treatment may last from 18 to 30 months, though this will vary depending on your individual case. Appointments are typically scheduled from 4 to 8 weeks apart. Your cooperation in keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments, maintaining proper hygiene and taking care of your braces may allow you to finish your orthodontic treatment early.
We encourage patients to ask questions about their orthodontic treatment. At a patient’s first visit, Dr. Tahbaz or Dr. Rezapour will inform patients and/or parents about important treatment details. We always welcome parents to be present during each appointment.
