If it is determined that orthodontic treatment is recommended, you will be scheduled for a longer (60-90 min) appointment to begin you orthodontic treatment. In this appointment, we will take additional records such as a digital scan of your bite , extraoral and intraoral photographs of your teeth and face , and we will proceed with the placement of braces, and instructions on how to take care of your braces.
For the periodic visits, we would like to see you every 4 to 8 weeks to check your progress and make adjustments to your braces.
