Getting started with OrthoFX is easy! Here’s a step-by-step guide:
First, Call the office or send us a message through our website, and we will call you. We are an authorized provider, and we are experienced in OrthoFX. This is important as you need someone who can assess your orthodontic needs and guide you through the treatment process.
Schedule a Consultation: Schedule an initial consultation. During this appointment, the dentist will examine your teeth, discuss your goals, and determine if OrthoFX Clear Aligners are the right treatment option for you.
Treatment Planning: If OrthoFX Clear Aligners are suitable for your case, the dentist will take digital impressions, X-rays, and photographs of your teeth. These records will be used to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Aligner Fabrication: Using advanced computer software, your dentist will design a series of clear aligners that will gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are precisely crafted to fit your teeth comfortably and discreetly.
Aligner Delivery: Once your aligners are ready, you will receive a set of aligners and detailed instructions from your dentist. They will explain how to wear and care for the aligners, as well as provide information on when to switch to the next set of aligners in the series.
Follow-up Appointments: Throughout your treatment, you will have regular follow-up appointments with your dentist. These appointments allow the dentist to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, and provide you with new sets of aligners.
Retention Phase: After completing the treatment with OrthoFX Clear Aligners, your dentist may recommend a retention phase. This usually involves wearing retainers, which help maintain the new position of your teeth. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions during this phase to ensure long-lasting results.
Remember, the specific steps and procedures may vary depending on your individual case and the recommendations of your dentist. It is always best to consult with a certified OrthoFX provider to get personalized guidance and start your journey to a straighter smile.
