What to Expect from Your First Visit to Your Orthodontist

During your first visit to the orthodontist, you should be prepared to provide medical information as well as undergo some diagnostic exams. Your orthodontist will gather the facts about your current oral health and orthodontic needs to evaluate the best treatment options for you.

Dentist office

Introductions and Information
Upon stepping in the door, you will likely be given a tour of the office and introduced to the orthodontic team responsible for your treatment, including your orthodontist. You will be asked to provide your dental and health information to create a better picture of your personal needs during treatment. You will also be given information about the process that will be used to evaluate your treatment needs.

Diagnostics and Scans
Your orthodontist needs a model of your mouth in order to design a treatment plan suited to you. Although some patients’ needs still require dental impressions, most patients can undergo fast and easy advanced three-dimensional cone-beam-imaging procedures. Your orthodontist will also take x-rays and photographs for a complete picture of your current tooth and skeletal health.

Treatments and Expectations
Once your orthodontist has evaluated your condition, you will be shown a computer simulation of what you can expect during orthodontic treatment. You will be given all of your treatment options, including which braces and other orthodontic appliances may be appropriate for your needs. Your orthodontist will be happy to discuss treatment type and length, financing options, and any other questions or concerns you may have.

At Seligman Orthodontics of Park Avenue, we strive to provide you with all of the information you need to choose the most effective and comfortable orthodontic treatment to suit your needs. We offer the most advanced diagnostic tools and a wide range of braces options, including hidden Incognito braces, to facilitate your treatment. To find out more, visit us online or call (888) 785-6413 today.

What Is Phase Two Treatment?

When orthodontic treatment is started at an early age for children, it occurs in two stages. The first stage occurs when a child is about seven years old and still has baby teeth.

As this video explains, phase two of treatment takes place a few years later, when most or all of the adult teeth have erupted. Many cases will only require treatment in phase two, but children should still be evaluated to create an orthodontic history early on.

To get your child started with treatment for a healthy smile, schedule an appointment at Seligman Orthodontics on Park Avenue. We can provide orthodontic care for the whole family with the most advanced technology available for treatment. Call us at (888) 785-6413 or visit our website for more information. 

Trends in Orthodontics for Adult Patients

Simply Beautiful (XXXL)

As orthodontic treatment technology improves, adults are finding it easier and more convenient to achieve a beautiful smile than ever before. Professional working adults may have worried in the past about braces, because older orthodontic systems proved to be bulky and uncomfortable. However, today’s solutions for straighter teeth and jaw alignment are aesthetically pleasing and relatively low maintenance. Here is a look at a few of the orthodontic treatments available to adult patients:  


The Invisalign treatment plan uses a series of customized clear liners that fit over the teeth to gently move teeth into their ideal positions. Invisalign liners are undetectable when they are in, and they can be easily removed to eat and brush the teeth. The treatment system uses no brackets, wires, or metal to create a better smile.

Damon Braces

By revolutionizing the design of the brace bracket, the Damon system has made braces much more comfortable. The teeth are moved gently and quickly, so treatment time is reduced compared to that of traditional braces. Damon braces are available in clear styles, which blend beautifully into the smile so they are only noticeable from close up.

Incognito Braces

The Incognito system is a completely custom orthodontic treatment that utilizes brackets that fit onto the back of your upper and lower teeth. The braces are visually undetectable, but they work effectively to move the teeth and create a more pleasing smile. Plus, Incognito braces have a minimal disturbance of your speech, as they blend so well into your oral anatomy.

See if these options will suit your needs for orthodontic care with Dr. David Seligman of Seligman Orthodontics on Park Avenue. We regularly work with adult patients, so we can cater to your unique needs for treatment. Schedule a consultation to discuss your smile by calling (888) 785-6413 or visiting our website.
