1. Keeping Your Appointments and Being On Time: Each missed appointment can lengthen treatment time by about a month.
  2. Not Breaking Your Appliance:Broken appliances can stop or reverse treatment progress. Please be sure to wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and braces when participating in contact sports. Extensive repairs may require an appointment during school or work hours.
  3. Wearing your Elastics and Appliances as instructed:Your teeth won’t move if instructions aren’t follower.
  4. Keeping Your Teeth and Braces Clean: All efforts should be focused on designing your new smile, not on unhealthy teeth and gums. Clean teeth with healthy gums move faster.
