The braces hardware installed in your mouth by Dr. Merissa Blais represents a significant investment in correcting the alignment of your teeth. The process requires routine adjustment sessions where your braces are tightened and tune. Each of these appointments will apply progressive tension to the periodontal ligaments that anchor your teeth in the socket.

These appointments are also a good opportunity to replace any pieces of braces hardware that have suffered a little wear and tear. If you’ve noticed a problem with any of your braces components, be sure to let Dr. Merissa Blais know.

Cavities can complicate the realignment process by interrupting the timing of your adjustment appointments. This could increase the amount of time it takes to fully correct the alignment of your teeth. You should feel free to let Dr. Merissa Blais know if you’ve been struggling to clean in and around a piece of braces hardware. Many times, she can recommend special oral hygiene tools or techniques to help you maintain good oral hygiene.
