Orthodontics requires a series of appointments throughout treatment. Some appointments require more time than others, especially bonding (braces placement) and debonding (braces removal) appointments. These longer appointments are typically scheduled prior to lunchtime. Once braces are placed, appointments usually last 20 minutes to an hour, depending on your needs, with usual intervals of 4-10 weeks. Our practice values punctuality, and we are committed to adhering to a regular schedule of follow-ups.
Unanticipated problems such as loose brackets, wires or broken appliances may occur. Contact our office as soon as possible to describe the problem to our scheduling coordinator, who will make an appropriate appointment for adjustment or repair.
