Not knowing what to expect can be a major cause of apprehension. With this in mind, every effort is made to relieve and reduce our patients' anxiety by thoroughly explaining all procedures before they are performed. We believe it is important that we explain the orthodontic process and procedures so our patients and their parents understand our mutual goals of achieving esthetics, function and oral health.
Because orthodontic treatment is not emergency care in nature, most procedures can be performed at a pace that is comfortable for the patient. We understand that some patients may be more comfortable moving at a slower pace.
