Orthodontic treatment truly is a partnership between your orthodontist and YOU. There are several steps you can take to help make sure you’re on the best and fastest route to your beautiful, healthy smile.
Keep your appointments regular. We understand that life happens, which is why we have flexible appointment times to work around your sometimes hectic lives. The better you stick to your individualized, recommended schedule, the faster you will see your smile change.
Keep them clean! Brushing and flossing during orthodontic treatment is extremely important. While braces and clear aligners can be used to get beautiful results, patients must properly care for them to avoid undesired results. Dr. Cox takes this part of treatment extremely seriously and requires the commitment from patients and parents to be sure you avoid those unfortunate consequences. He will give you all the tools necessary and give regular updates on how you are doing.
Braces safe diet. The key to moving teeth is keeping braces and buttons attached to the teeth! Sticking to a braces-friendly diet will ensure less emergencies and that movement continues forward.
