How Will Your Life Change?
Treatment with braces typically lasts between 18-24 months, depending on your individual case, so having an understanding of what to expect during this time will make your life easier.
Because you’re adding an entirely new element to your teeth, it’s important to practice more frequent oral hygiene. Not only should you brush and floss on a daily basis, but you should also visit with your dentist for three cleanings a year. Our orthodontist can go over the steps you should take to brush and floss effectively, and you can learn more about the best techniques here [link to Brushing & Flossing page].
While your smile is under renovation, you’ll come into Charleston Orthodontic Specialists for the adjustment of your braces which normally range from 8-10 weeks, where our orthodontist will update you on the progress of your treatment.
