Consistent Braces Adjustments

Posted .

The traditional braces installed in your mouth by the orthodontic specialists at Corsa Orthodontics have been designed to gradually reposition your teeth. This is done by having Dr. Christopher Corsa perform a routine adjustment every four to six weeks. This will effectively tighten the braces components as they bring your teeth into their ideal position.

Consistent timing with your adjustments is very important to the process. If you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict, you should contact Dr. Christopher Corsa’s orthodontic clinic to set up an alternative time.  

The appointment is also a convenient time to repair or replace any braces components that have suffered some excess wear and tear. If you’ve noticed a problem with some part of your braces, be sure to let Dr. Christopher Corsa at the start of the appointment.  

Maintaining good oral hygiene is also important for the success and duration of the realignment process. Cavities that develop on one or more of your teeth can increase the total duration of the alignment process. If you’ve been having trouble cleaning a specific area Dr. Christopher Corsa can give you further advice.

If you’ve had braces installed at Corsa Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic in San Jose, California, and you need to schedule a new adjustment appointment, you can call 408-997-7772 to speak to a member of Dr. Christopher Corsa’s staff.
