Orthodontic examination

Starting from


Planning an orthodontic treatment requires a thorough orthodontic diagnostic. To arrive at an appropriate diagnosis, the diagnostic procedure entails a number of processes that must all be completed. The patient interview/consultation, clinical examination, and utilization of diagnostic records are among the total steps involved. A treatment strategy for the specific patient can only be created once these procedures have been carried out and evaluated.
