The braces installed at Smile at the World Orthodontics were designed to gradually correct the alignment of your teeth. This means routine adjustment sessions where your braces are tightened and tuned. Each appointment will apply progressive tension to the periodontal ligaments that anchor your teeth in their individual sockets. Braces adjustments are the key to straightening your teeth.

Tooth decay complications and treatments might interrupt the regular timing of these adjustments. This might increase the amount of time it takes to fully correct your smile. If you’ve been struggling to clean in and around your braces, let Dr. Joshua Knowles. Often he can recommend special oral hygiene tools or tips to help you uphold great oral hygiene.

Your adjustment appointments are also good opportunities to repair and replace any broken or wearing pieces of braces hardware. If you’ve noticed a problem with any of the orthodontic hardware be sure to let Dr. Joshua Knowles know before your appointment. If you need to come in sooner, call us and we can arrange it for you.

Consistency and regular timing are also important to the adjustment process. If you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict it would be best to set up a new time.
