- Keeping Your Appointments and Being On Time: Each missed appointment can lengthen treatment time by about a month.
- Not Breaking Your Appliance:Broken appliances can stop or reverse treatment progress. Please be sure to wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and braces when participating in contact sports. Extensive repairs may require an appointment during school or work hours.
- Wearing your Elastics and Appliances as instructed:Your teeth won’t move if instructions aren’t follower.
- Keeping Your Teeth and Braces Clean: All efforts should be focused on designing your new smile, not on unhealthy teeth and gums. Clean teeth with healthy gums move faster.
