What Are Rubber Bands and Why Do I Have To Wear Them?
Rubber bands are used to correct your bite to its ideal position. We will not remove the braces until the bite is corrected so cooperation in wearing the rubber bands is essential to finishing treatment as soon as possible.
How Often Do I Wear The Rubber Bands?
You will wear the rubber bands 24/7 and change them out for new rubber bands . You will remove the rubber bands only when eating or drinking. If you happen to run out of rubber bands, please give the office a call to know which location we are at and if able you can swing by our office and acquire more rubber bands.
How Does Scheduling Appointments Work?
For any appointment (whether it is regarding braces, aligners, etc) we will see you every 4-6 weeks. We will always try to be as accommodating as we can be, but depending on the time of year we can get quite busy and highly recommend that if you prefer a specific time and/or location, we can make sure to always be one appointment ahead of schedule if you remind us when coming in for each appointment.
Can I Schedule After School For Appointments?
We take our last patients at 4:15pm. We will always try and be accommodating for school schedules, but understanding is greatly appreciated since after school is a prime time spot and can get filled quickly. We HIGHLY recommend making the next scheduled appointment every time the patient is seen, and if you are wanting a specific time frame, we recommend always being sure to stick with one appointment ahead of schedule.
With Two Locations, Am I Stuck Only Going To One For Appointments?
Not at all! If you happen to start your orthodontic process at one of our locations, but the other is closer to home or work, you are more than welcome to make appointments at either location to work with your needs.
