What to Expect
Before braces are placed, patients must visit a dentist for an exam and have any necessary fillings. Patients should visit the dentist every six months for a thorough examination and cleaning. Before each orthodontic appointment, patients are encouraged to brush their teeth. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided in the office. Proper dental hygiene is essential to achieve outstanding orthodontic results.
Simon Orthodontic Centers schedule appointments to fit your busy lifestyle. Our staff makes every effort to accommodate each patient's schedule. In order to help us continue to schedule efficiently, 24 hour notice is required to cancel an appointment.
Treatment may last from 18 to 30 months, though this will vary depending on your individual case. Appointments are typically scheduled from 4 to 12 weeks apart. Your cooperation in keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments, maintaining proper hygiene and taking care of your braces may allow you to finish your orthodontic treatment early.
Written correspondence may be given to our patients during most appointments. Please make sure that you review any pertinent information that your child was given if you were not present for the appointment. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office directly.
