Caring for your Braces During Treatment

Did you know that you can impact the duration of your Orthodontic treatment simply by taking care of your braces and carefully following your Orthodontist’s instructions? It’s true! With that in mind, here are some helpful tips that will help you get the most out of your Orthodontic treatment.

1. Don’t miss any appointments.
Missed appointments can slow down treatment progress.

2. Wear retainers or elastics exactly as prescribed.

If you don’t understand your Orthodontist’s instructions, ask them to clarify so you know exactly what is expected.

3. Immediately report any loose or broken braces or wires!

These need to be repaired by your Orthodontist as quickly as possible. Treatment progress that can take months to achieve, can be lost in a matter of days due to a single broken appliance.
