Our patients at Brace Connection hate the thought of delaying their treatments and often ask us what they can do in between their adjustment visits to help. Today, Dr. Babaeian and our team thought we would provide some tips on how you can stay on track in regards to your treatment plan time.

 

The first thing we want you to do is keep your adjustment appointments. Each visit with Dr. Babaeian is carefully planned to move your teeth a specific way in a certain time frame. It’s important to note that missing an appointment can add weeks or months to your treatment time.
