First visit and evaluation

This first contact is intended to know the reasons why the patient makes the consultation to us. A brief medical-dental history and a dental, facial and articular clinical examination will be completed to assess the need for orthodontic treatment.

This appointment serves to assess what type of radiographic tests will be necessary to study the case of the patient and if necessary consult with other specialists. If the patient does not need treatment at this time, he / she goes to a program of revisions every 6-12 months and if he / she deems it convenient the doctor will indicate when it will be necessary to start the treatment, quoting him / her for a record taking or when finishing the dental replacement. will give you the discharge of these observations.

Maintenance and activation visits

These visits are used to adjust the devices.

reviThanks to the super-elastic materials that we use, visitors are spaced out for their comfort, taking five or seven weeks with an approximate duration of 30 minutes.

During the treatment there are sessions in which new records are taken: models, x-rays, ... to evaluate how we are getting closer to our goal, adjusting ourselves to the planned treatment time.

Our personal challenge is to eliminate waiting times, which we get most days.
End of treatment

The dental correctors are removed, the dental surfaces are cleaned and polished.

We take new records to compare them with the initial ones and to manufacture the retainers.

The current records are compared with the initial records, we evaluate the results achieved and explain them to the patient.
Retention
Finally, the patient must carry a retainer, a simple and comfortable device that keeps the teeth in the ideal position reached. If the patient does not wear the retention devices the teeth could move. Visits are made every six or twelve months.
