First Visit

First Visit at Chaison Orthodontics
Dr Emi Chaison

Complimentary exam

Your first visit to our office will be a free exam for you or your child. Dr. Chaison will carefully examine the teeth for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems, such as crowding, cross-bite, gaps, etc. Once the doctor has a clear picture of the most likely course of treatment, we’ll discuss what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take, and how much it is likely to cost. You’ll understand everything you need to know in order to decide whether to proceed with treatment.

Chaison Orthodontics Your Records

Records appointment

If you decide to proceed with treatment after your complimentary exam, records are made to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays.

This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan that addresses the unique needs of each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.

After Dr. Chaison has thoroughly evaluated your diagnostic records, she’ll explain your treatment to you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.

Regular appointments

After the records appointment, we’ll be ready to schedule an appointment to have your new appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) placed. That process usually takes one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals of four to eight weeks for adjustments, which take about 30 minutes.

Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask you to extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.
