New patient exams

Your first visit is actually a complimentary
orthodontic exam and consultation. Here you will
get to meet with Dr. Hiremath and his staff,
share your concerns and learn about your specific
treatment needs. Following an exam, he will share
his initial findings with you. Should he
recommend treatment, he will provide you an
overview of your treatment plan, the timing and
the length of treatment, the costs involved and
any other areas that impact successful
orthodontic outcomes. Should you decide to move
forward with Hiremath Orthodontics, we will
schedule you for diagnostic records appointment
where we will take any additional X-rays,
impression of you teeth, and photographs of you
teeth and face. If at you initial consultation you
decide to use our services, you may opt to have
your diagnostic records taken at this appointment
instead of scheduling a separate appointment.
Interceptive Treatment
Interceptive Orthodontics is a phased type of
orthodontics. Growth is utilized to correct
developmental occlusion problems. Staging the
treatment can correct immediate problems and
future issues. Interceptive orthodontics simply
means diagnosing and treating malocclusions as
soon as they are detected. The American Academy
of Orthodontics now says all children should have
an orthodontic assessment no later than the age
of seven. In the past, orthodontic treatment did
not begin until around age 12-14. This is when
all the permanent teeth are already erupted or
very close to it. It was also common for your
dentist to remove permanent teeth to correct the
bite and allow for room for the final phase of
tooth movement. Modern orthodontists now advocate
a way to keep permanent teeth, with phased
interceptive orthodontics. In interceptive
orthodontics, children are treated at much
earlier ages (usually between age 7-11 years old)
to take advantage of continuing growth. Patients
at this age tend to be more receptive to, and
compliant with treatment. Interceptive
orthodontics allows for fewer teeth to be
extracted and also allows for better end results.
Adolescent Treatment
Early evaluation provides both timely detection
of problems and greater opportunity for more
effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides
growth and development, preventing serious
problems later. When orthodontic intervention is
not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully
monitor growth and development and begin
treatment when it is ideal. Though an
orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age,
there is an optimal time period to begin
treatment. Beginning treatment at this time
ensures the greatest result and the least amount
of time and expense. The American Association of
Orthodontists recommends that the initial
orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first
sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age
7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may
not be necessary, but vigilant examination can
anticipate the best time to begin
treatment. Orthodontics is not merely for
improving the aesthetics of the smile
orthodontic treatment improves bad bites
(malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result
of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions
affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth
or feel about your smile.
A large percentage of our patients are adults,
and they agree that its never too late to
improve their greatest asset their smile.
Adult Treatment
Braces arent just for kids anymore. Tooth
alignment can be changed at any age if your gums
and bone structure are healthy. We offer a
variety of treatments that are designed for
different age groups including adults. A new
smile can begin today. Orthodontic treatment at
later stages in life can dramatically improve
your personal appearance and self-esteem.
Improving the health of your teeth and gums is
equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite
can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay,
abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces,
headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Good
news! The new techniques and appliances we use
greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the
frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and
may allow you to choose from several options.
Your options may include metal braces,
translucent braces or transparent aligners (clear
retainer aligners) that can be worn at night to
improve mild cases of misaligned teeth. During
the initial examination, we will be able to
determine the best possible treatment for your
individual needs. During this initial
examination, we can outline the treatment plan,
time of treatment expected and the approximate
Thats certainly something to smile about!
Traditional Braces
Dental braces can correct crooked and crowded
teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems.
Braces also eliminate problems you may have with
eating, speaking properly, or with keeping your
teeth clean. Traditional braces have come a long
way over the years, becoming sleeker, smaller,
and more comfortable. And thats certainly
something to smile about! Traditional braces
consist of standard metal brackets that are
adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and
connected by wire. They require periodic
tightening so pressure can gradually straighten
your teeth and align your jaw as needed. While
metal braces brackets are still the most common,
other treatment options are available today.
Remember to remove your retainer before brushing,
brush your retainer before placing it back in
your mouth.
When we remove your braces, we will begin the
retention stage of your treatment. The retention
phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your
final orthodontic result depends on your
retainers, so follow through with the hard work
youve put in so far. Removable Retainers You
will receive clear rap-around retainers, which
are removable. You must be very careful when
handling your retainers, as they are fragile and
costly to replace. You are given a special case
for your retainer please make sure you keep them
in this case when not wearing it! To clean these
retainers, brush them with toothpaste (soak them
in denture cleaner about twice a month) using
normal tempature water. Your retainers should be
worn at all times with the exception of eating
and brushing your teeth. Your retainer should
also be removed when participating in sports that
require a mouthguard or while swimming. After 12
months of full-time wear, we may revise your
retention treatment, allowing the retainer to
strictly be worn at night. Your final orthodontic
result depends on your retainers, so follow
through with the hard work youve put in so far!
3D Imaging
The new ORTHOPHOS XG 3D, a hybrid solution from
Sirona. The new ORTHOPHOS XG 3D combines the
advantages of 2D and 3D into one comprehensive
unit. With an extensive selection of panoramic
and cephalometric programs to choose from, the
right 2D diagnostic images are now augmented with
the ability to capture 3D X-ray. The new hybrid
unit from Sirona requires about the same space as
a traditional 2D X-ray machine, but now provides
the advantages of 2D and 3D together in your
practice while encouraging the lowest possible
effective dose for the patient.
  • Key advantages
  • Simple patient positioning - the operator has a
    clear visual of the area to be scanned
  • The Auto-Positioner enables the operator to take
    images with confidence
  • Intuitive control with the Easypad touchscreen
    makes program selection fast and easy
  • Automatic sensor rotation eliminates the need for
    manual sensor change
  • Multiple 3D scan regions allow the operator to
    scan only the region of interest
  • A short scan time ensures patient movement during
    the scan is kept to an absolute minimum
  • Easy navigation of the 3D volume allows you to
    scan the volume quickly and with confidence
