Do you ever wonder why your routine adjustment appointments are important when you have braces? If so, our orthodontist, Dr. John R. Schouten, is happy to tell you why. Your orthodontic adjustment appointments help you have a successful orthodontic journey. Some of the reasons why this is the case are because:
Orthodontic adjustment appointments apply more pressure to your teeth. This is necessary to transform your smile. When your teeth adjust to the pressure, there aren’t any changes being made. When this happens, our orthodontic team needs to apply more pressure to keep the teeth moving and to guide them into place.
Adjustment appointments fix any problems with your braces. This is helpful if you have a loose or broken bracket, if you have a broken wire, or even if you have a piece of hardware that is poking and bothering you. These adjustments can fix any breaks and also help your braces feel more comfortable.
