Your Path to a Perfect Smile

Embarking on orthodontic treatment can bring many questions and uncertainties. At Braces By Dr. Ruth, we prioritize clarity and comfort from the very beginning.

Your first visit involves comprehensive diagnostic tests, including a review of your medical and dental history, clinical examinations, x-rays, and detailed imagery of your face and teeth.

This thorough approach ensures we craft a treatment plan tailored uniquely to you, promising results that not only meet but exceed your expectations.

Ensuring a Smooth & Effective Treatment

The success of your orthodontic treatment is a partnership. Following Dr. Ruth's guidance on wearing headgear, bands, retainers, or other prescribed appliances is essential.

Regular brushing and flossing are also crucial to maintain the health of your teeth and gums throughout your treatment.

Should you encounter any issues with your braces, such as loose wires or bands, our team is on standby to provide the necessary adjustments and care. By adhering to these guidelines, you're on your way to achieving a stunning, healthy smile with Braces By Dr. Ruth.

Your Step-by-Step Guide to Orthodontic Care

Your journey to a beautiful smile begins with a free consultation. Here, Dr. Ruth will personally review your diagnostic records to outline your treatment path, discussing both the process and the investment involved.

Your initial fitting is a detailed appointment, lasting one to two hours, setting the stage for your transformation.

Subsequent visits, scheduled every four to eight weeks, are crucial for adjustments and to ensure your treatment progresses as planned. To maintain the momentum of your treatment, we advise keeping these appointments unless absolutely necessary to reschedule.

During your treatment, you may want to avoid certain foods and habits to protect your braces and ensure the best results:

  • Avoid chewy, sticky, hard, and crunchy foods.
  • Steer clear of foods requiring a biting action, like apples or corn on the cob.

It's normal to experience some discomfort initially, which typically eases after a few days. A simple saltwater rinse can offer relief during this adjustment period.
