From the beginning straight to the end
Teeth will move over time under a constant steady pressure. During your customized treatment, regularly scheduled adjustments are made to your teeth as determined by your treatment plan. Our state-of-the-art mechanics cause very little discomfort as they move your teeth.
Here is an example of what you can expect from your overall orthodontic experience at OSGB. Keep in mind that no two patients are alike and every smile is different.
1. Your initial visit and courtesy examination
Meet your doctor and treatment coordinator. Undergo a clinical evaluation to determine if it’s the right time for diagnostic records. If diagnostic records are recommended, they could consist of any of the following:
The doctors review the diagnostic records to put together an individualized plan for your next appointment.
2. Your next appointment is a consultation with a treatment coordinator.
3. You’re getting braces!
Remember: growth, compliance and hygiene all contribute to your successful smile. Treatment varies from one patient to another and a variety of advances may be part of your customized treatment.

SureSmile QT: A lingual system, placed on the inside of teeth.

4. Your customized plan includes regular office visits for treatment adjustments.
5. Your braces are coming off!
And in far less time than if you had traditional, old-fashioned braces! Once your braces are removed, a scan will be taken for retainers.
6. Receive your retainers. Remember, retention is for life!
Initially, these need to be worn full time. The number of hours you’ll need to wear your removable retainer will be reduced over time. If your retainers feel tight, it’s probably a sign that you need to wear them more.
