Brackets, wires, bands, and spacers are integrated together in traditional braces to create a functional system capable of correcting misaligned teeth. The process requires routine adjustments to tension the components and stretch the periodontal connective tissues that anchor your teeth in place.
With consistent timing these appointments will gradually bring your teeth closer to their ideal alignment to provide you with a more attractive smile and more efficient oral function.
If you are aware of an upcoming scheduling conflict with a scheduled adjustment, you should contact Fourth Dimension Orthodontics & Craniofacial Orthopedics as soon as possible to set up an alternate time.
These appointments are also an opportunity to address any braces components that are showing signs of wear and tear. If something has been bent or damaged, you should tell your orthodontist so he can repair or replace it.
Cavities and poor oral hygiene problems can potentially complicate the realignment process. If you are having a hard time cleaning around a specific area, you should feel free to ask Dr. Deji Fashemo for further insights.
