Orthodontic Appointments

SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS

Once engaged in orthodontic treatment, we will see you on a regular schedule which varies depending on your chosen treatment. In most cases, we see patients on a 4 to 8 week rotation.

DEBONDING / DEBANDING:

Upon completion of treatment, the braces will be removed and the teeth will be polished. Post-treatment X-rays and pictures are then taken to evaluate treatment response compared to the initial orthodontic records. Retainers are then made to hold the teeth in place.

RETAINER CHECKS

Bring your retainers to your RETAINER CHECK appointment! Retainer check appointments are typically at 6 month intervals and allow us to assure the retainers are being worn as instructed and monitor development of 3rd molars (wisdom teeth). 2 years after removal of your braces, we will still recommend wearing the retainers on a regular basis, but you will no longer have regular scheduled visits. YOU GRADUATE!

VISITING THE DENTIST DURING ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist a minimum of once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.

Testimonial

Thank you for making “getting braces”? a fun and exciting time for our 13-year-old daughter. She looks forward to going to her appointments and loves seeing her new smile take shape. Beth  made her feel right at home during her first appointment and did a great job explaining everything before we even began. Dr. Doshi is very knowledgeable and also has helped our daughter feel comfortable every step of the way.
