Getting braces is a huge step in having a perfect smile! Before you begin, take the time to understand the three braces treatment steps we recommend at our practice.
Step 1: 3D digital imaging of your teeth.
Step 2: Top braces are placed. The bottom braces are generally placed a few months after the top. Many times rubber bands will be necessary to settle the bite into a correct and healthy position. You will then be seen every few months for braces adjustments until the desired tooth and bite position is acquired.
Step 3: Removal of all brackets and placement of upper and lower clear plastic retainers. Retainers will be worn full time for a few days, then 12hrs a day for a year, then night time for a lifetime to stabilize and maintain your hard work.
