The Path to
Getting your braces put on is the first step in showing the world your true smile. We totally get it if you’re feeling a little nervous about the process, but it’s painless and we’ll let you know what to expect throughout your entire treatment towards straightening your teeth.
You’ll sit down with the friendly and attentive Dr. Kwong. He’ll examine your mouth, take photos and x-rays if necessary and formulate a diagnosis. You’ll chat about your treatment goals and discuss your questions and concerns. Dr. Kwong will present you with the treatment options that will work best for you and educate you so you can make an informed decision.
Getting Your Braces Put On:
Woohoo! On your way towards straightening your teeth and a perfect smile. Dr. Kwong will adhere the brackets to your teeth and fit the archwire and colors (yes, we have colors!). The process usually lasts for about an hour. There are no needles involved and it doesn’t hurt a bit!
You’ll regularly visit our office to have your braces adjusted. We’ll make sure everything is going as planned and answer any questions you may have. These appointments usually only take 20 to 30 minutes.
This is an exciting day and you’ll get to see how your treatment has paid off. Dr. Kwong will remove your braces (this process is also painless) and we’ll unveil those gorgeous straight teeth.
In order to keep your teeth in their new, straight positions, you’ll need to wear a retainer. We’ll make it custom just for you and give you the low down on how to use it.
