How can I insure the success of the orthodontic treatment?


  1. Make every effort to keep every appointment scheduled and bring your retainers to each visit.
  2. Follow all instructions that you are given by your orthodontist or his staff.
  3. Keep your teeth clean with regular brushing and flossing. It is important to try to brush teeth after each meal and snack.
  4. Schedule and keep cleaning/check-up visits with your general dentist at least every six months.
  5. Keep your braces and any appliances or retainers as clean as possible.
  6. If required, wear elastics (rubber bands) as instructed.
  7. Be sure to maintain a healthy diet, rich in Vitamin C.
