How Long Do I Need to Wear Braces in Toronto?

Many people are concerned about the length of orthodontic treatment, and want to learn how to quicken their treatment. It is true that orthodontic treatment is a process. Whether you are a child, teen, or adult, treating a mild or severe case, orthodontic care takes some time to get it just right. Every patient’s treatment length will vary, but many patients in Toronto are eager to complete their treatment and begin living life with a beautiful smile. Luckily, Wired Orthodontics says there are some steps you can take to keep your orthodontic treatment running on schedule and get an even faster result.

First, it is extremely important to maintain good oral health.  After all, straightening teeth is only part of the battle – keeping teeth from decaying or developing plaque is what makes the final product so perfect when the braces come off.  Having braces in Toronto may make brushing and flossing a bit more difficult. So, Dr. Nalbandian recommends brushing your teeth after every meal. Additionally, it is smart to floss as often as you can, using regular floss or super floss, to make sure that all food remnants are gone from on and around the teeth. Dr. Nalbandian also suggests packing a braces-hygiene kit every time you go out, equipped with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. This way, you will never have to worry about your oral health in Toronto slowing down your treatment process.

Secondly, be sure to always listen to Dr. Nalbandian. There are many adjustments patients must make when wearing braces in Toronto, and sometimes many of the new rules may seem hard to follow. However, it is important that you do listen to them, by doing things such as foods to avoid with braces, like those that are hard and sticky, as these are dangerous to your treatment process. Additionally, many patients tend to need orthodontic appliances that go along with their treatment. These appliances are things like rubber bands, which help to move the teeth to the right position. Use these appliances exactly as they are directed, or treatment time will be longer.

Third, understand that accidents do happen in Toronto, but it is extremely important to seek care for them immediately, as any break that goes left untouched will produce a delay in treatment. Braces are made of delicate brackets and archwires, and they can pop free or snap naturally or from eating hard and sticky foods. If for some reason your braces do break, don’t panic. Place wax on any area that is causing you discomfort, and then contact Wired Orthodontics as soon as possible. We will have you come in so that Dr. Nalbandian can fix the damages, keeping your braces functioning properly and avoiding any delays. Also, be careful to do what you can to avoid accidents happening. When playing sports, always wear a mouth guard so that the braces are not exposed to any pressures or hits. This will keep all the parts in the right places.

Lastly, follow a strict schedule with Wired Orthodontics. Throughout your treatment, you will need to come in to our Toronto office for checkups, adjustments, and more. The Wired Orthodontics team will work with you to make appointments on dates and times that are best for you, so it is important that you do attend them. However, we get it, patients in Toronto have busy schedules, and are sometimes unable to make it. If this is the case, be sure to create a new appointment as soon as possible, as staying consistent and on time with your appointments is the last step in making sure that your process runs smoothly and efficiently.
