Your orthodontic treatment has been planned and it’s almost time for your braces to be placed by Drs. Werner and Werner. There are a few things that you can do to be ready for this important step in your journey to a straight smile.

Clean Your Teeth Thoroughly
If your teeth are not clean when you come in to get your braces placed, our orthodontists will clean them with a special polishing paste. This will allow the braces to be properly cemented in place. You may want to schedule a professional dental cleaning appointment a few days before you are scheduled to have your braces placed so that your teeth will be plaque free. Then be sure to brush and floss before your appointment so that your appointment can be more efficient.

Discuss Your Braces
Before your braces are placed, speak with our orthodontists and make sure that you understand what type of braces are being used. Ask any questions that you need to so that you fully understand your orthodontic treatment. Some types of braces include:

– Braces with brackets that are bonded to the front of the teeth. These are the most typical choice for children.
– Braces with brackets that are bonded to the back of the teeth. These are more discrete and attractive.
– Metal bands that are wrapped around the teeth. These are used instead of brackets.
