What Does The Process For Having Traditional Metal Braces Placed Look Like?
When you’re ready to come in for your orthodontic consultation here at Dentist of Long Beach, we’ll give you an examination, take x-rays and thoroughly discuss your potential treatment plans and payment options. For these plans, we’ll take into consideration a number of things including your insurance coverage, your particular orthodontic needs and other details that help us make the treatment affordable.
Next, you’ll come in for your braces placement appointment. This appointment will take longer than those in the future because of the installation process. During this installation you’ll:
- Have a teeth cleaning
- Have the surface of your teeth prepared for the braces
- Have brackets placed and cemented onto your teeth with non-toxic adhesive
- Have wires and elastics placed
After your placement appointment, we’ll see you again for periodic adjustments and checkups as well as any additional care you may need along the way.
