It’s normal to feel a little nervous about getting your braces put on but there are no needles involved and it’s 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 braces procedure.
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 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 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.
