The first step in the process is a consultation with Dr. Sawhney. This will include a discussion of your dental history, your personal habits, as well as your specific dental, bite, jaw, TMJ or sleep apnea concerns. If Dr. Sawhney determines that you are a good candidate, she will then create a custom treatment plan.
A custom treatment plan is relatively straightforward: we take x-rays, pictures and digital (impression or mould-free) scans of your teeth, allowing us to create a 3D image of your mouth. From these images, Dr. Sawhney maps out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movement of your teeth or opening of your airway.
After this information has been compiled, Dr. Sawhney will then be able to give you an approximate calculation of how long the overall process will take.
When it is time to manufacture your custom-made appliance, we will take that step.
