Patients change their aligners every one to two weeks, however, they only come in for appointments about every 2-3 months.

FAQS


  • How often will my child need to come in for appointments?

    Frequency of appointments varies based on what stage of treatment a patient is in. In the early stages of active treatment, most patients come in approximately every 2-3 months for routine appointments. Towards the end of active treatment, patients will come in about every 6 weeks. Once a patient is no longer in active treatment we will continue to monitor them in retainers, usually every 6-12 months as needed.
