Throughout your orthodontic treatment, you will have several types of appointments. At the initial visit, Dr. Quimby or Dr. Collins will exam you, listen to your concerns and determine the best course of treatment. At the next appointment, the bonding/banding appointment, your braces will be applied and instructions will be given on how to take care of them.

Most patients in braces will be seen every 4-10 weeks for routine appointments to check treatment progress and make any adjustments. Once your treatment in braces is complete, it’s time to show off your beautiful new smile! The braces are taken off at the debanding/debonding appointment. You will then receive your retainer along with instructions on when to wear and how to care for it. Retainer check appointments will take place for two years to ensure proper use and fit.
