How do you place the braces?

One of the most frequently asked questions about orthodontic appointment is about the initial clinical appointment. Our patients are curious to learn how we place braces. It is generally booked for one hour. 40 minutes to place them and 20 minutes to review instructions on how to keep good oral hygiene and how to maintain and care for your braces.

We use retractors to pull your lips and cheeks away from teeth so we could dry the tooth surface. Glue sticks only on dry surfaces. Then, we proceed to clean your teeth and place braces one at a time. Once all the braces are placed, then we secure the wire on the braces with elastics.
