The placement of your orthodontic appliance usually requires a longer appointment compared to many of your other appointments throughout treatment. Therefore, this appointment usually takes place during the morning as plenty of time can be allocated to the accurate placement and fitting of your fixed or removable appliance.
There may be some minor discomfort for one to two days after the placement of your orthodontic appliances. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, are effective against any discomfort you may have.
Slight modifications in your diet and oral hygiene are necessary for the success of your orthodontic treatment. We will communicate closely with your family dentist throughout your treatment. We recommend that you continue to visit your dentist every six months for check-ups and cleanings. Remember that the success of your treatment lies in your hands as well.
