Are you curious to know why your adjustment appointments are important for your orthodontic journey? If so, our orthodontist, Dr. Anthony Scoma, is more than happy to tell you why. That way you’ll understand the purpose behind the treatment and you will also feel more motivated to attend your appointments. The reasons for the adjustments are:

They help you have the smile you have always wanted. This is possible because your orthodontist will apply more pressure to the braces, which will apply more pressure to the teeth, making them move. Without the pressure, your smile will not transform. Eventually, your teeth adjust to the pressure and stop shifting, which is when you need to attend your next appointment.

They treat any wear and tear on your appliance. When we say wear and tear, we mean any broken brackets, damaged wires, or even irritating pieces of the braces. This appointment allows us to fix the appliance, get you back on track toward your perfect smile, and give you the comfort you deserve.
