This depends on the appliance you choose to have. During your “tightening” visit, we will change your elastics (the wrap around the wire to hold it in place) and may adjust or replace your wire.
Your visit intervals may vary but on average if you have:
- Metal or ceramic braces you will be seen every 6-8 weeks
- Lingual braces/ Incognito you will be seen every 4 weeks
- Invisalign or Invisalign teen you will be seen every 6-8 weeks
