How Often Should I Have My Braces Adjusted?
County Dental follow-up orthodontist appointments in the Hudson Valley of New York are scheduled every four to six weeks in order to replace worn out rubber bands, check progress on your teeth, and make adjustments to the wires.
Adjustments Typically Last 20 Minutes
Wire adjustments are essential to make sure the teeth are pulled in the proper direction. Adjustments typically last 20 minutes. Regular adjustments may cause temporary soreness.
Eat Soft Food When Experience Soreness
County Dental recommends eating soft food if you are experiencing post adjustment soreness.
Taking care of your teeth while wearing braces is valuable in making sure you will only have to wear braces for one to three years, or as prescribed by your orthodontist at County Dental.
