Keeping it Positive at the Orthodontist

Bergenfield, NJ | Patients & Pachter

Improving your smile starts with an orthodontic office visit, and your first appointment is one of the most important ones that you’ll have! For your first time in an orthodontics office, you’ll get to talk through options, get an oral health examination, and meet the team handling your treatment.

Getting an examination can be scary, no matter your age. This may even be your first time going to see a tooth specialist! Children and adults can feel nervous during their initial consultation, but the truth is that it should be fun, positive, and full of smiles.

That’s why we’re going to take you through what to expect during your first time in Bergenfield orthodontics practice (and why you should be ready to cakewalk to your brand new smile!).

Becoming a New Patient

Whether you need traditional braces or clear aligners, orthodontic treatment is designed to bring you a beautiful smile while adjusting problems with your jaw, bite, or missing teeth. But before you can get started you need to get a free consultation to see what kind of party is going on in your mouth.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their teeth monitored from an early age. For adults, a dentist may spot signs of trouble and send you our way for evaluation. No one is too old for a brand-new grin!

But what can you expect when you walk through our doors? Check out the five most important steps for your first appointment!

Taking a Look at Your Teeth

Everyone is unique, and so is their smile! We start the journey to a new you with an exam that looks at your oral health, your medical and dental history, and the tooth troubles that you’re facing. We’ll also complete scans of your grin to help us strategize.

Putting Together Your Smile Goals

When meeting our orthodontist, Bergenfield visitors will also get a chance to show off their smiles to us so that we can create your orthodontic goals.

Once we have a good idea of where you’re at, it’s time to check out where you’re going.

Your treatment should be a journey full of positivity that puts you on the path to an inside-out transformation. We make sure you’re comfortable and happy with your plan from start to finish.

From Dr. Pachter to the office staff, we’re all here to help you on your orthodontics journey.
