Frequently Asked Questions: Do I need to see my General Dentist when I have braces?

Let’s Work Together!

One of the common questions we get at Glander Rochford Orthodontics is “do I need to continue seeing my general dentist while I have braces?” As orthodontists, Dr. Glander and Dr. Rochford work as a team with your general dentist to make sure you have the best care possible. Because of this, it is very important that you continue to make your regular check up appointments while in braces. At these appointments, you will have your teeth cleaned and your dentist will also make sure there are no cavities or other issues.

Braces can make keeping your teeth and gums clean more challenging. With the help of your general dentist, we can make sure that everything is squeaky clean and healthy! Your general dentist will also be interested in seeing how your orthodontic treatment is going, so make sure to tell him or her how much fun you have at our office :)
