It’s normal to feel a little nervous about getting your braces put on but it’s actually pain-free and the first step in reaching your smile goals. We’ll be your partners in the process and make sure you feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire treatment.
1 Your Records Appointment
This is where you come in for your first consultation with Dr. Sharma. You will have digital x-rays and a mould of your teeth taken to asses your dental condition.
2 Put Your Braces On
Your treatment is officially underway. Brackets, arch wire and rubber bands will be fitted to your teeth. The painless process takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 ½ hours.
Dr. Sharma will adjust your braces every four to six weeks as your new smile begins to take shape. This is a good time to address any concerns or questions that may pop up during treatment.
4 Your Last Adjustment
The moment you’ve been waiting for: The day you bid your braces farewell! Your brackets, bonds, arch wire and rubber bands will be removed to reveal perfectly straight teeth.
5 Wearing Your Retainer
A retainer ensures your teeth remember their new positions. Dr. Sharma will have your retainer fitted to your new bite and adjust your retainer periodically to ensure good maintenance.
