One of the most important parts of our job is to educate our patients about the appliances we use during orthodontic treatment. Knowing how to care for braces is so critical because it has a direct effect on your treatment time and results. That’s why we always ask you whether you’ve been practicing good habits such as brushing your teeth and staying away from certain foods.
If you ask any Roanoke Valley Orthodontics team member what they love the most about working at RVO, they will tell you it’s the patients! The amount of time a patient is in active treatment varies from case to case, but it’s usually between 18 months and 2 years. From your first appointment with us to your last retainer check, you are a part of our practice family!
