It can be intimidating to get braces to straighten your teeth or your children’s teeth. Here at Fourth Dimension Orthodontics & Craniofacial Orthopedics in Allen and Dallas, Texas, we strive to make your orthodontic treatment as comfortable as possible. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment while getting braces.

During the initial visit, Dr. Deji Fashemo will assess what the alignment problem is and take impressions of the upper and lower teeth so he can make models. Using those models, our orthodontist will make a plan to align your teeth or your child’s teeth.

At a follow-up visit, permanent braces will be attached to your teeth and adjusted to begin aligning your teeth. There may be some initial discomfort or pain in the first phases of treatment, but it should pass soon.

After the initial installation of the braces, you will need to come in once every few weeks for 18-24 months to adjustment your teeth on track to becoming straight. These visits will help our orthodontist assess the progress of your treatment and make necessary adjustments.

Straightening your teeth will have a huge impact on your quality of live. At the end of treatment, you’ll have a beautiful, strong smile you can be proud of. So, contact our Dallas office at 972-947-2000 or our Allen office at 972-947-2200 today to schedule your consultation.
