Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months or according to your dentist recommends, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
