Regular appointments with my Stouffville Orthodontist!

At MCO Stouffville Orthodontics, I often get this question asked by patients and parents. How often do I have to come for my appointments and what consists of them?

The usual rotation is between 4-12 weeks depending on what we are trying to accomplish during the treatment.  NO, the appointments do not hurt. YES, you will be a little sore for a few days after.

When you come in for your appointment, we evaluate the changes from your last appointment. Let's say you are coming back for your first appointment since you got your braces placed. We will be more than likely evaluating the alignment of the teeth. Often times we will remove your current wires, let you brush & floss, then insert new, stronger wires to straighten everything a little more. You will get the chance to change the colour of your elastics if you so choose.
Elastic colours for braces :)

Because we will be changing the wires, it puts a different pressure on your teeth. You will take a couple days to get used to it. Regular appointments last between 15-30 minutes :). Every time you come into MCO Orthodontics, we are glad to see you!! It's always exciting seeing the progress and introducing you to our in office contests! See you soon!
