Orthodontic tooth movement stalls in the presence of gum disease due to poor oral hygiene. We will collaborate with your oral hygienist and/or dentist to maintain your oral health during and after treatment.
TONGUE RESTING AND SWALLOWiNG
It is very important to refrain from nail biting, lip biting, thumb sucking, and tongue thrusting. These bad oral habits are known to create bad bite and interfere with orthodontic treatment.
DURATION OF TREATMENT
Generally, braces have to be worn approximately for 18 months or up to 2 full years. There are some cases when the braces need to stay on longer due to the severity of malocclusion. Excellent oral hygiene, avoidance of deleterious oral habits and patient compliance make treatment seamless and shorter in duration.
RISKS AND LIMITATIONS OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
While recognizing the benefits of a beautiful healthy smile, you should also be aware that, as with all healing arts, orthodontic treatment has limitations and potential risks. Please click here to review the American Association of Orthodontists informed consent prior to orthodontic treatment.
\When braces are taken off, one set of removable retainers (i.e., upper and lower) and lower lingual fixed retainer are provided. Retainers are worn full time for 6 months and night time thereafter.
