It could just be annoying when you have to take away time from your limited day to see the orthodontist. But is there any option if that is what your oral health deserves? Based on our professional years of experience at White Brown Smiles, Greenville, we are convinced that how often you meet with the orthodontist depends on each individual situation.
During this period of visitation, you have your eyes on when they will be removed so you can say goodbye to the door. Well, every patient we have encountered at White Brown Smiles always has that yearning to see the success. But then, it doesn’t end with the removal of the braces. For example, while your braces are on, you may have an assessment every 5 or 6 weeks depending on your particular needs. In another instance, if it’s Invisalign treatment that you need, checks usually occur every 4-6 weeks and it is usually shorter. However, most situations require fixing or adjusting every 1-3 months.
Even after removing the braces and teeth are looking all white, perfectly straight and aligned, you still need the service of the orthodontist to help you maintain the success. How does the orthodontist do this?
- He or she will make a set of retainers with the necessary instructions for you.
- He or she is your perfect guide on how to best use them, so appointments don’t end with removal. In fact, you have to be back to his or her office if you start experiencing discomfort and may be in need of re-fixing.
On the other hand, even if you are not experiencing dental issues, you have to see the orthodontist so that any plaque that might may formed while you were using the braces can be dealt with.
Ultimately, the time of your orthodontic care depends on the situation. You should not be scared though because with the best orthodontist, you will enjoy the process. Have more questions? Call us today or send a message to us at White Brown Smiles, Greenville, SC or call 864.297.6453.
