At your initial visit we will take 2 x-rays, a panoramic x-ray and a lateral cephalometric x-ray.  The panoramic x-ray allows the orthodontists to see all of your teeth including the roots of the teeth and we will be able to see if you are missing any teeth or if you have any impacted teeth.  The lateral cephalometric x-ray allows the orthodontists to look at the position of your teeth relative to your bones which helps them to diagnose and treatment plan your optimal orthodontic treatment.
