When you receive orthodontic treatment at James B. Macomson, DDS, MSO, PA, it’s important that you strive to keep all of your appointments and never miss or reschedule a session with your orthodontist. Adjustment appointments are intended to keep your orthodontic treatment progressing so that you can achieve your new smile as soon as possible.

Typically, orthodontic patients see Dr. James B. Macomson about every four to six weeks to have their periodontal ligaments stretched and adjusted, which ensures that their teeth continue to shift into the proper alignment. The number of times you need to visit the orthodontist during treatment will depend on the desired results.

Stretching your periodontal ligaments allows the orthodontic treatment to progress and is a critical and consistent part of realigning your teeth. By missing one of these sessions, you may be increasing the amount of time that you have to wear braces.

These regular appointments are also an opportunity for our orthodontist to correct any bends, worn out areas, or damages in your braces, and they are a time that you can ask all of your oral hygiene questions. This is especially important if you find that just brushing alone isn’t enough to keep your braces and teeth clean.
