The first meeting with the dentist is where they physically examine your teeth and gums, use dental X-rays, and refer you to an orthodontist if braces are needed.
The orthodontist examines your teeth for alignment issues and recommends a treatment plan, including the type of braces used for the dental procedures, duration, and cost.
Fitting of the Braces
The braces are fitted in your mouth, starting with a cheek retractor to enhance visibility.
Teeth Cleaning & Cementing
The teeth are cleaned, conditioned, air-dried, and primed before brackets are attached with non-adhesive cement and cured with laser light.
Placement of Arch Wires
The archwires are installed once the brackets are in place and the cheek retractor is removed.
