Wondering what happens after your braces have been applied to your teeth? There are routine steps that we ask you to take prior to leaving our office after each visit. Our goal is to help ensure you experience as minimal discomfort related to irritation from the braces and ensure an optimal response to treatment.
These are great steps to ensure your visit with us, works for you.
1. Using your finger and tongue, check to see that the wire ends do not extend into areas which might poke or abrade the cheek or tongue.
2. Make sure you understand what you are to do until your next appointment. This could include wearing headgear or elastics as instructed, adjusting an expander or following specific hygiene and diet instructions.
3. Make sure you have an adequate supply of dental wax, special cleaning aids, elastic bands, or other related materials you may need between appointments.
4. Always schedule your next appointment before leaving the office. Postponing appointments is a common contributor to overtime treatment.
