Do You Have a Fear of Braces?

Posted .

“You need braces” is a sentence no one likes to hear, especially when it comes from a dental professional. It’s common to have concerns about the process of getting braces or the time duration, which is why our team at Blais Orthodontics has provided a few tips to help you prepare for your next orthodontist appointment.

– Talk to your orthodontist about your concerns. Dr. Merissa Blais wants your experience to be as comfortable as possible, and she is willing to work with you to address your concerns. Don’t be afraid to speak up if something is weighing on your mind.

– Research in advance. Knowing what to expect at your orthodontic appointments will help you prepare mentally and emotionally. Feel free to call Blais Orthodontics at 914.472.9595 with any questions you may have.

– Ask about alternatives to braces. In addition to traditional braces, we offer Invisalign®, PROPEL, and crystalline sapphire braces as less-visible solutions to your less-than-straight smile. If you feel that traditional braces aren’t for you, ask Dr. Merissa Blais if you qualify for one of our other orthodontic options.
