Can I come on my lunch hour?

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on April 7, 2012

Will I be able to get my orthodontic braces applied to my teeth on my lunch hour?

Yes absolutely! Having orthodontic braces fitted is quite a straightforward procedure. Your teeth are first polished, then a clear varnish applied onto the teeth. The fixed brace attachments called brackets are then placed onto the tooth surface. Finally, a thin flexible wire is inserted onto the brackets. Following the actual brace fitting procedure, we discuss in detail all your after-care instructions to enable you to look after your fixed braces and ensure your orthodontic treatment is successful. We have short video clips on the website showing braces being fitted. The brace fitting often takes 30-40 minutes and there are no reasons why you cannot go back to work after the fixed braces have been fitted. We would probably advise you may want to quickly have your lunch first, then attend the orthodontic appointment to have your fixed braces fitted!
