Nifemi walked into the dental clinic with the complaints that her orthodontic treatment is taking too long when compared with that of her friend Tola
There are many reasons for the delay which can be complexity of the treatment, patient’s factor, or clinician’s delay.
Breaking of brackets – this will slow down the treatment until the brackets are replaced
Missing appointments – appointments are meant for moving to the next stage in the treatment process. When appointments are missed, the next stage is delayed thereby prolonging the overall treatment duration.
Defaulting in using your appliance – depending on the treatment need, you may be given some appliance to use at home for certain hours. Application of such is crucial in the speed of treatment.
Late Orthodontic Intervention – The earlier the start of orthodontic treatments the faster the outcome.
