What Is The Process For Metal Braces?
When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Hamid Barkhordar will talk to you about any health issues, as well as your personal and family health history. We'll also take impressions of your mouth, X-rays, and pictures of your face. All of these images help us craft the perfect set of braces that fit your mouth comfortably during your straightening treatment.
At your next appointment, we will affix the braces to your teeth. Afterwards, you will need to come in every few months so we can check your braces and make any necessary adjustments. When it's time to take the braces off, we'll give your teeth a thorough cleaning and fit you with a custom retainer to ensure your new smile stays beautiful for life.
Braces stay on your teeth for anywhere from one year to four years, depending on how much work is needed. We encourage you to make your braces part of your personal style by offering you different colored brackets and elastic bands to choose from.
