What to expect at an adjustment appointment

During your orthodontic treatment, every 4 to 6 weeks or so you will go to your orthodontist for an adjustment appointment. It may sound daunting or awful, but not to worry, its really very simple.


What you can expect to happen at an adjustment appointment are as follows:

First the clinical assistant removes your elastic ligatures. Then the arch wire is removed. The orthodontist will then come over to examine your teeth’s progress.

Now depending on where you are in your treatment, your braces may need a new arch wire, elastics, or even a new power chain.

After the orthodontists evaluates, the clinical assistant will put the new or previous arch wire back onto your brackets. New elastic ligatures are then put on. If it is one of the first times you are getting an adjustment, it is common that it may hurt a little bit. This is because of the pressure being placed on the teeth. Not to worry, after you have a few adjustment appointments under your belt, it won’t hurt nearly as much!
