Getting braces put on after a consultation typically takes 2 to 3 weeks. At Princeton Orthodontics, we make sure that all patients read and understand the consent form before beginning treatment. If you live near Las Vegas, Children's Dentistry can provide more information about braces for your child. After determining that orthodontic appliances are necessary, your dentist will refer you to an orthodontist who will explain the timeline for placing them.
It's important to make arrangements with your dentist for a cleaning, checkup, and fluoride treatment after the braces are removed. The orthodontist must also tighten the braces as the teeth move closer or further apart during the straightening process. If you have dental insurance, you'll need to complete an insurance verification form during your initial consultation about orthodontic appliances.
