Cost of X-Rays and Molds for Braces

This stage is usually done as part of the initial consultation. Some orthodontists may require you to schedule another appointment. In order to fully assess your case and provide a comprehensive treatment plan, the orthodontist will need to see the whole picture (just like a doctor carrying out medical tests before diagnosing and proposing a course of treatment).

For braces, the standard diagnostic records involve taking photographs of your face, mouth and teeth. You will need to have molds (impressions) taken of your upper and lower teeth. A panoramic x-ray will show your present and developing teeth, their health and your supporting bone structure. A cephalometric analysis will show the side of your head to assess facial growth abnormalities which is essential for treatment planning. The outlay of obtaining these records can range between 0 and 0.
