Life with Braces

DOING YOUR PART

A successful orthodontic treatment and a healthy and beautiful smile is the result of a team effort among you, Dr. Chung, and your family dentist.

As the patient, you play the key part. It's up to you to ensure that your treatment plan ends in success. Most importantly, you must keep your teeth clean and maintain good dental hygiene while you're wearing braces.

Proper dental care will take a little extra time and effort but the results are well worth it, and will help you enjoy the best possible smile from your orthodontic treatment.
