Your first Moles & Ferri visit will typically include having x-rays taken. An essential component of any dental treatment plan, x-rays allow the doctor to see the structure of the jaw, the position of teeth (including those that may still be below the surface), tooth decay, and malformed roots.
During your first visit, we will also gather your medical history. It is important that your medical history be truthful, up to date, and include the frequency and doses of any medications (whether over-the-counter or prescription) that you are taking. While gathering your medical history, we will also ask you about any recent illnesses, hospitalizations and surgeries you may have had, as well as any fears you may have about dental treatment.
During your first visit, if appropriate, we will also discuss insurance and payment options, as well as your orthodontic goals.
Collecting this information and having a thorough medical history helps the doctor understand your medical needs and select the most safe and effective method of orthodontic treatment for you.
