How Often Do I Have to Go to the Orthodontist?

Life is busy. Most of us have calendars filled with events, meetings, work obligations, and more. And some of us not only have calendars filled with events for ourselves, but we are balancing multiple schedules of other people on top of our own!

So why is it that often times the hardest things to fit in our calendars are the most important ones, like dentist, orthodontist, and doctor appointments?

When choosing to visit an orthodontist, people usually want to know how often they should visit the office for checkups. This is important information to have because the health of our bodies, teeth included, should be a priority.

The good news is, as technology advances, people have to see their orthodontist less frequently and for a shorter time period than in the past, which means less appointments for you!

So How Often Do I Need to See the Orthodontist?

How often you need to go into the orthodontist depends mostly on the procedure or treatment you are receiving.

In most cases, you can expect to see your orthodontist about every 1-3 months. Braces, Invisalign, and most orthodontic treatments need to be monitored and adjusted as your teeth shift and the alignment of your mouth changes.

For most braces patients, the appointments are typically every 8 weeks at Cosmopolitan Orthodontics. When treatment nears the final stage, appointments may be more frequent.

For patients choosing Invisalign, Dr. Bonvino can design the treatment and appointments around your lifestyle. Many patients will be seen every 10 weeks, but for some, they prefer to be seen less often.

Consider scheduling a consultation to find out exactly what a treatment plan would look like for you. With your new treatment plan in mind, you will be able to plan how you can fit appointments into your schedule and prioritize your smile!

This is why when choosing an orthodontist it is important to look at location as well. If you’re looking for an orthodontist around Rosemount, Cosmopolitan Orthodontics has 3 locations, making your orthodontist appointments as convenient as possible!

Just think, you could be a few appointments away from a healthier smile you will love to show off!
