Orthodontic treatment is a successful way of finally achieving the smile of your dreams. However, it might be a little intimidating at times, especially during your first orthodontic appointment. But, our Advanced Center for Orthodontics team is here to help you know what to expect when you come into our office!

When you come in and meet with your orthodontist, Dr. Michael Chung, for the first time, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: First, your orthodontist will determine if you need treatment by thoroughly examining your entire oral cavity. This exam will involve taking a series of X-rays and photographs. The exam will help your orthodontist give a diagnosis and explain any orthodontic issues you have.

Step 2: If you do indeed need treatment, impressions of your teeth will be taken. These impressions will help your orthodontist create a treatment plan just for you and your smile. This is when we will review your insurance benefits and explain your financing options and payment plans.

Step 3: Finally, our team will describe the appliance that we recommend using, whether it’s a clear aligner, braces, or a retainer. We will also tell you how long you should expect to go through treatment.

As you can see, your first orthodontic appointment in Freehold, New Jersey, will be a breeze.
