If you suspect it’s time for you to get braces, you may be wondering what to expect before, during, and after your treatment. This is completely understandable; orthodontic treatment comes with its host of changes, and it’s always a good idea to know exactly what to expect so that you have reasonable expectations and there are no surprises along the way. Our team at Davis Orthodontics in San Diego and Escondido can help prepare you for your treatment.
It all starts with an initial evaluation at our office, during which our orthodontist can assess your teeth and hear about your goals for your smile. From there, a customized treatment plan can be created for you. Keep in mind that metal braces aren’t your only option for treatment. In fact, you have a number of treatment options to choose from ranging from more traditional options to new, innovative solutions like Invisalign®. During your initial appointment, we can determine which treatment is best in your case.
The exact details of what to expect during your orthodontic treatment will depend on the method you choose. For example, if you opt for clear or metal braces, you’ll want to learn about certain tips for brushing and flossing so that you can effectively clean your teeth. But if you undergo treatment with Invisalign®, you can remove the aligners before your oral hygiene routine; thus, you can brush and floss like normal. You can also eat whatever foods you’d like since you can remove the aligners as needed.
The length of the treatment will depend on a number of factors. However, when all is said and done, you can enjoy the benefits of a new and improved smile. You can say goodbye to crooked teeth or a misaligned bite and hello to a beautiful smile that you are proud to show off! It’s important to remember to wear your retainer as advised in order to maintain your results.
