With braces, do i need to come in for check ups often?

Submitted by admin on March 7, 2014

How often do I need to come for my appointments?

Usually you will attend every 6-8 weekly intervals throughout your orthodontic treatment. In some stages of your brace treatment, these appointments may be more frequent being 4-weekly, and other times can be of longer intervals of every 10-weeks. Damon braces which are self-ligating braces allow longer time intervals between appointments. Damon braces have less ‘friction’, and the teeth can move a little more easily in most cases. Your orthodontist will advise you at each appointment when to schedule your next appointment.
