The treatment process

  • Sparkly tooth icon
    Before

    Do your homework and have your questions ready to ask during your consultation appointment. Prior to starting treatment, be sure to visit the dentist to have your teeth professionally cleaned. Don't forget to brush and floss!

  • Braces on tooth icon
    During

    It will probably take 1 to 2 weeks to adjust to treatment. Your speech may also feel a little clumsy at first – but that goes away quickly! From there, sit back and watch your smile transform!

  • Sparkly smile icon
    After

    At the completion of treatment your teeth may feel sensitive as they get used to standing on their own. Continue to brush and floss regularly, and don’t forget to wear your retainers!
