Coming to our office for an assessment for braces may require x-rays, photos, and other important assessments first before you get your braces. This is to help ensure that we can do the treatment plan accordingly and accurately to mitigate your symptoms. In usual cases, it takes about 18 to 24 months for the treatment plan for dental braces to be completed. For severe cases, however, it can take longer. It may take up to three or more years, depending on the patient and our dentist's discretion. However, the entire progress will be followed throughout by our dentist and will be meticulously planned.
What is a Patient's Responsibility?
As a patient, you also have to cooperate with our dentist's plan. While we can prescribe a treatment to you, you also have to be responsible for your oral health in order to make your smile brighter and more beautiful. Moreover, you do need to follow through on your appointments with us.
Having braces can require some maintenance, but it will be worth it as soon as you see the results. To help ensure the best outcome, it is important to keep your teeth clean and healthy. You will want to keep both your teeth and your traditional braces clean. Furthermore, make sure you eat the right food that will not damage your brackets. This can help avoid unwanted dental mishaps. If you do encounter any issues, please notify us right away.
