After an oral examination, procedures to obtain diagnostic orthodontic records will be performed. These include: dental impressions to fabricate dental casts; X-Rays (panoramic and cephalometric); digital photographs.
After careful examination of this diagnostic information, Dr. Finelli will prepare an individualized treatment plan for the patient with great consideration given to establishing facial and dental harmony. A consultation visit will be scheduled, at which time Dr. Finelli will present the orthodontic treatment plan to the parents and/or patient, the time required to accomplish treatment and the cost of treatment.
