What would be the procedure when I come for an orthodontic check-up at the clinic?
When you report for the orthodontic appointment, the first thing that would be done would be to have a detailed discussion with you regarding what exactly is the concern.

Then a thorough clinical examination would be performed by Dr. Chintan Agrawal and his team of specialists and it would then be decided whether orthodontic treatment is required for you or not. If treatment is required the most probable line of treatment would be discussed along with all the treatment options.
If it is decided that I require treatment what would be the next steps?
The immediate next thing would be to take your records before the start of the treatment. These records include photographs, duplication of teeth ( impressions ) and X-rays ( Radiographs). After these records are taken and studied in detail the actual treatment procedure would be started according to the requirement.
How long would the treatment take?
The duration depends on the type of treatment being done. It usually varies from 14 months to 20 months, though it may sometimes take lesser and sometimes more, again depending on the type of treatment required. You would be required to visit the clinic approximately once a month for your appointments for the entire duration of the treatment.
what is the appropriate age for a child to begin orthodontic treatment?
The AAO recommends that all patients be seen for an orthodontic examination by age 7. Early evaluation determines the appropriate time to begin treatment. Many severe problems can be improved or prevented by the use of growth modification therapy. This involves prescribed appliances that guide the proper growth of the bone and teeth. In this way, early treatment may eliminate problems that could necessitate surgical orthodontics after growth cessation.
Is it possible for an adult to undergo Orthodontic treatment?
Yes absolutely! Orthodontic treatment can be performed irrespective of the age. More and more grownups today seek Orthodontic treatment and are treated successfully. It is an extremely common misconception that adults cannot be treated Orthodontically and their crooked teeth cannot be straightened!

Most adults get orthodontic treatment because they realize that taking care of your smile is part of taking care of yourself. A beautiful smile is achievable orthodontically in most of the people irrespective of their age!

Do braces hurt?
In recent years, orthodontic treatment has become more comfortable and more aesthetically pleasing. Typically, the patient is not uncomfortable during appointments but may experience some discomfort for two to three days following the adjustment. Over the counter pain medication is usually sufficient for relief, provided there are no known allergies to these medications. The patients are encouraged to consult with their physician before purchasing any medication.
How long do i have to wear braces?
Many factors can affect the length of treatment such as a severity of the original problem(s), a patient's individual response to treatment, and cooperation by the patient. Patients may be surprised to hear that age is not a major factor in determining treatment time. Although minor tooth movement may be resolved in a year or less, complex cases may need two or more years for completion.
