Do I need an x-ray before beginning treatment?

We require that you see a dentist and have your primary oral care needs addressed prior to beginning treatment, which may include x-rays. Your dentist will conduct a cleaning, check for cavities and decay, perform an oral cancer screening, and do a full review of your oral health to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for orthodontic teeth movement.

Following that, our orthodontists will design your treatment from your diagnostic photos and dental impressions or intraoral scan.
