As a top orthodontist in Park Slope & Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Jahn’Shahi offers follow up appointments for all of his orthodontic patients both while they have treatment and after the braces are removed. He sees his New York City based patients at the conveniently located Park Slope Orthodontics.
Orthodontic follow-up appointments are required attended while you are wearing the braces or Invisalign® aligners as well as after the corrective treatment is complete. While the treatment is in progress, the orthodontist will check on the progress of the treatment and make adjustments as needed. After treatment is complete, orthodontic follow-ups are used to monitor the patient’s teeth to ensure they do not move out of place.
During your corrective orthodontic treatment, you will see your dentist every two weeks if you have Invisalign® or every 4-6 weeks if you have traditional, clear or lingual braces. The purpose of these visits is to make sure your teeth are moving in the right direction. Depending on your treatment, the dentist will either fit you with new aligners or make adjustments to the wires and replace any rubber bands. While it may seem like you are always in the dentist’s chair, it is important to attend these visits as skipping adjustments can hinder your progress and result in having to wear the braces or aligners for a longer period.
Once your treatment is complete, Dr. Jahn’Shahi will fit you with a retainer and want to see you regularly to monitor his work and to make sure that your teeth are staying in place. You may also want to have a thorough cleaning after the braces have been removed and some people having dental bleaching treatments. Good dental hygiene, while you have braces, will reduce some of the staining and tartar buildups that can occur during orthodontic treatment. Attending these appointments is important. You will not want your teeth to move out of place after wearing braces or aligners for 12-36 months. Also, just like those who have never worn braces, it is important to see your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups to ensure your dental health.
