The braces your orthodontist, Dr. Firoz Lalani, installed in your mouth are made from a series or metal brackets, bands, and other various hardware. They are designed to realign your teeth for a better functioning mouth and a more appealing smile. This is done by applying progressive tension to the braces to gradually stretch the periodontal ligaments that are anchoring your teeth in their positions.
Consistency is important throughout the alignment process. If you miss an adjustment session, it will likely increase the total duration of time it takes to achieve your ideal smile. So, if you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict, you should call us to set up another appointment.
It’s not unheard of for a spacer to fall out shortly before you’re due for your next adjustment. When this happens, you should call A Dental Care to alert us. We might simply recommend scheduling a sooner adjustment.
Each adjustment session also includes an examination of your braces hardware. Sometimes a band or spacer might need to be replaced due to regular wear and tear. If you’ve noticed a problem with your braces, you should alert your orthodontist so he can give it special attention.
If you are due or overdue for your next adjustment session for your braces in Houston, Texas, you should call to schedule an appointment at A Dental Care.
