If you are interested in orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, it is essential for you to first have a comprehensive dental examination. At East Keilor Dental your overall dental health is our first priority. If you are found to be dentally healthy and a suitable candidate for orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, you will then be booked in for an assessment most likely involving:
- Moulds or impressions of your teeth
- x-rays of the jaws, teeth and skull
- Clinical photos of your bite
Following assessment of the information gathered, a treatment plan will be created. This is usually a 3D design of each stage of planned treatment which is then used to fabricate the aligners. Before approving the case, you will be shown the plan along with the likely final tooth position at the conclusion of treatment.
