After the completion of your initial consultation & records visits, you can expect the following steps.

Start Treatment

At this appointment, you’ll meet with Dr. Yoon to review your diagnostic findings & to confirm your individualized orthodontic treatment plan.

 

Active Treatment Visits

Periodic orthodontic visits are generally every 4-6 weeks.  During these visits, we’ll check your progress, work on hygiene and make adjustments to your braces or appliances as needed.

Please continue to practice excellent oral hygiene & maintain a healthy diet low in refined sugars.  Please also continue to visit your dentist regularly (every 4-6 months) for your check-up & cleaning.

 

Retention

After finishing your orthodontic treatment, you’ll receive a pair of retainers to ensure that your teeth stay straight.  Wearing your retainers is just as important as the active treatment stage.

We encourage that you wear your retainers close to full-time for the first few months after the braces come off (depending on your treatment plan), then only at nighttime thereafter.
