Expert Orthodontic Care in Maple Grove, MN

At Accorde Orthodontists, we strive to provide high quality orthodontic care to patients in the Maple Grove, Champlin, and Rogers areas while maintaining a fun, friendly office environment. We're proud to use only the latest in advanced orthodontic technology at our office, and our team of doctors and highly trained orthodontic specialists works hard to design personalized treatment plans that perfectly suit each patient's unique orthodontic needs. But before diving into treatment, you'll need to come in for your initial orthodontic appointment.

What To Expect At Your First Visit

Your first visit to our office is an exciting time: it's the first step down the path to a beautiful, healthy new smile! It'll be a chance for us to both get acquainted with one another, to discuss your orthodontic situation and any conditions you may have, and to explore potential options for treatment.

Your first appointment will probably take at least an hour, and we plan this much time to make sure we can answer all your questions and go over everything with you in detail. You'll first meet one of our receptionists or patient coordinators, who will take down your information and get started with getting you into our system. After the necessary paperwork is complete, it's time for your initial examination. 

Gathering Information & Planning Treatment

During your initial exam, we'll take measurements, photos, X-rays, and perform a thorough examination of your mouth, including a digital scan of your teeth with our latest iTero technology. We'll use this information to fully understand your orthodontic situation and also to see if any orthodontic problems, or malocclusions, may exist.

After the exam, we may tell you your mouth is perfectly healthy and send you on your

way – but more often than not, we'll recommend orthodontic treatment. Keep in mind that we may or may not opt to start treatment right away: in some cases, it's better to wait until later on in your dental development to begin treatment. In any case, we'll go over your potential treatment options in detail with you, and if we do decide that now is the right time, you and your doctor will select one that suits your orthodontic needs and your lifestyle.

 

This discussion is also a time where we'll go over the findings of your orthodontic exam and answer any questions you may have. During the discussion, we'll try to cover a number of common questions:

  • Do you need orthodontic treatment?

  • What treatment methods might work best?

  • When is the best time to start treatment?

  • How much will treatment cost?

  • How long will treatment take?

 

We'll try to cover all these questions and more, but as always, if you have any more questions or want more information, we encourage you to ask us. We also ask that you please keep in mind that while we can give a good-faith estimate, we can't give you a guarantee for the length or cost of your treatment - these things simply have too many variables, and we won't know for sure until a little later on.
