Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your regular family dentist once every six months, especially during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. Some patients may even need to get a cleaning every three months. If extra dental care is needed, we will inform you right away and coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
