Finishing treatment on tIme
Successful orthodontic treatment is achieved by the patient and the orthodontist in partnership. If the patient cares for the appliances and wears all of the appliances as prescribed, then invariably treatment proceeds to a successful and pleasing conclusion within the anticipated treatment time-frame. The most common reasons for longer than expected treatment times are failure to wear appliances as advised. If you run out of elastics, please phone during working hours and we shall post you another pack the same day. Broken appliances and missed appointments can also lenghthen treatment times and adversely affect the quality of the final result. Please avoid chewing hard or sticky foods and report any broken appliances as soon as they are noticed.
