First Visit At Your San Antonio Orthodontist

firstvisitAt the San Antonio office of Dr. Roy Gonzalez, Jr., we provide top-quality orthodontic treatment in a welcoming, friendly, and professional office environment. Dr. Gonzalez and his expert team work with each patient on an individual level, designing personalized treatment plans for each patient’s unique orthodontic needs from traditional metal braces to Invisalign or Invisalign Teen. Orthodontic treatment is an investment for a better smile that lasts a lifetime. Whether you’re in San Antonio getting orthodontic treatment as an adult or as a child, it all starts with your first visit to Dr. Gonzalez.

Your Orthodontic Diagnosis

Your first appointment to our office is an exciting time, as it’s your first step towards a beautiful, healthy smile. It’s also a time for us to get acquainted, find out more about your orthodontic condition, and discuss potential treatment options such as Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, metal braces, and clear braces. Dr. Gonzalez is board certified and is a member of the staff at Methodist Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. He also practices craniofacial and surgical orthodontics for the most complex cases.

During your first visit to our San Antonio office, Dr. Gonzalez will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaws. Based on this evaluation, he’ll make a preliminary diagnosis and talk with you about your orthodontic health, the treatment options available to you, and give an estimate of the timeline and cost of your proposed treatment. If you would like to proceed with treatment, we’ll begin by preparing our diagnostic records during this visit.

First Visit

Dr. Roy Gonzalez, Jr. and his father, Dr. Roy R. Gonzalez, practiced together for many years until Dr. Roy R. Gonzalez’s retirement in 2016.

What To Expect During Your Initial Orthodontic Exam

Diagnostic records begin with photographs of your face and mouth. You’ll enjoy looking back at these “before” shots when your treatment is complete. Whether you choose to go with metal braces or Invisalign, we know you’ll be excited about your “after” shots! We will also take X-rays of your head and teeth, and take impressions (molds) of your teeth. We may place some small rubber or metal separators between your back teeth to make placement of the orthodontic bands more comfortable at your next visit.

Our bookkeeper will go over the financial arrangements for your orthodontic treatment, making sure you understand our payment options and procedures. Before your next visit, Dr. Gonzalez will study your photographs, X-rays, and the plaster models of your teeth. He will create a detailed plan to help you achieve a beautiful smile using Invisalign, metal braces, clear braces or whatever orthodontic approach is most appropriate and fits with your wishes. He has the ability to consult with a wide range of medical and dental specialists depending on the complexity of your case and treatments needs. At your next visit, we’ll begin placing some of your braces or fitting your first set of Invisalign aligners. Then, your treatment is on its way!
