With orthodontic treatment in practice, you’ll see a specialist orthodontist for an initial consultation, as well as regularly throughout the course of your treatment.
During your treatment, typically you’ll see your orthodontist every six to eight weeks. They carefully monitor your progress and dental health to ensure you get the results you want. It isn’t always easy to predict how the teeth will move during orthodontic treatment, so regular appointments with an expert allow for alterations to your treatment plan if needed.
If necessary, your orthodontist can adjust your braces throughout your treatment, which could involve small tooth-coloured attachments or reshaping your teeth to get the best result.
