What Does Treatment Involve?
The orthodontist will conduct an in-depth exam of your mouth during the consultation. Once your oral health is analyzed, the dentist will determine if the patient is the optimal candidate for 6-month smiles. It might be necessary to take X-rays, facial photographs, an impression of the teeth before treatment. If we determine the patient is a candidate, the lab will use the models to determine the amount of tooth movement necessary to allow for the intended straightening.
The next appointment involves a fitting with the clear brackets and wires. The brackets are fused to the teeth through an application of bonding adhesives to the enamel surface and brackets. A custom tray is added to the teeth after the dentist applies a bonding agent. After setting occurs, we can remove the tray. We will then harden the adhesive and adjust the archwires to allow for adequate tooth movement. Once the treatment is complete, we will remove the brackets and wires.
