Steps Followed For The Best Orthodontic treatment Process At Growing Smiles
At Growing Smiles Orthodontics our management team has set a rule of protocols to be followed while initiating the orthodontic treatment for many to get the best possible treatment outcome.
Step 1 - Orthodontic Consultation
The lifestyle requirements for every patient will be taken into consideration. Your Orthodontist will ask you if it would be compatible with your profession & lifestyle if the orthodontic appliance is completely visible & partially visible. If both the scenarios are incompatible only then the patient is given the option on Invisible clear aligners. Your chief complaint has also recorded by the Orthodontists at Growing Smiles to plan a more customized treatment for you! The motive of the above the case record is to make the orthodontic treatment as comfortable & affordable as possible
Step 2 Intraoral Photography
Intraoral photography is done by taking pictures of focused mirror images. The motive of the above step is to show the patient the extent of the malocclusion & for the orthodontist to study the case an plan the right orthodontic treatment for you.
Step 3 iTero digital impression
A digital impression capturing all your permanent teeth is taken. The iTero scan is an advanced 5D dental technology which emits & captures the surface to record the digital impression by your Orthodontist at Growing smiles. This takes about 3 to 4 minutes & the Orthodontist will show you the 5D impression & malocclusion on the iTero screen and the best way to plan the Orthodontic treatment. The iTero scanning is done for Invisalign & other clear aligners if the patient opts for ceramic or metal braces an alginate impression is taken and the treatment is planned and explained on the traditional dental impression! The best Orthodontic treatment steps are also followed in Invisalign Bangalore centers as well as the protocols are globally standardized from California USA to Bangalore India.
Step 3 - Orthodontic treatment simulation
The iTero scan integrates with the ClinChek software which simulates the best orthodontic treatment outcome with more than 90% accuracy even before the treatment starts. This way you can see the treatment finish and it also enables our Orthodontists at Growing Smiles to plan the best possible Orthodontic treatment reducing the space for any human error.
Step 4 - Extra oral Orthodontic facial assessment
Step 5 - Facial Form Assessment
Step 6 - OPG (Full Mouth X-Ray)
A full mouth X-Ray will capture a panoramic radiograph of all your teeth. This is required before conducting Orthodontic tooth movement to detect any underlying conditions such as caries or root infections. Fillings or root canal treatment will be required to restore the integrity of any affected tooth or teeth before staring any Orthodontic treatment or cosmetic dentistry.
