The wires, brackets and various hardware components that make up your new orthodontic braces play an important role in improving the alignment of your teeth. This is done by attending routine adjustment appointment every four to six weeks.

It’s also important to keep in mind that cavities and periodontal health complications could potentially delay your regularly schedule adjustment. This could extend the amount of time needed to correct the alignment of your teeth.

Brushing your teeth each morning and night and remembering to floss once per day is very important for maintaining a healthy mouth. You also shouldn’t put off your regularly schedule dental checkups at Bradshaw & Hathaway.
