On your first visit
Dr. Piper will take x-rays and photographs of your teeth, and then he will take an impression of your teeth as they are. At the end of the appointment, he will place SEPARATORS on your molars. These make a little space for the bands which are placed on the molars.
A week later
When you come back, Dr. Piper will put on your BRACES. You’ll come back every four to six weeks to adjust the wires and ligatures, which control the movement of your teeth. You’ll get new “O’s” at each adjustment, and you can change the colors every time!
