Compliance Is The Key To Creating A Great Smile

Co-operation between the orthodontist and patient during orthodontic treatment is a key component in being able to achieve a favourable final result. The patient has to accept the responsibility of their problem and be willing to make a commitment to complete the case.

In helping to accept the responsibility, the patient has to not only understand the treatment goals, but also how the treatment plan is carried out including any anticipated changes during the course of treatment.

Usually specific instructions during treatment will aid in guiding the patient to an anticipated result. This may include elastics or rubber bands and the possible wearing of additional appliances. Following instructions incorrectly, can and will definitely delay the final outcome.
