Dr. Don and his team are amazing! My son just finished 26 months of treatment and his smile is nothing short of perfect! I am so pleased with his results but even more impressed with the family environment that Dr. Don provides in his practice! I personally was a pacient over 10 years ago and I’m still greeted by everyone on a first name basis! If you are in search of the best orthopedic experience, this is where you need to be. You will not be disappointed!
Dr. Don Wilson and his staff have been absolutely wonderful! When we first walked into their office for a consultation, my daughter needed a lot of work in order to get her smile in line but Dr Don assured the both of us that they were up for the task and boy did they exceed our expectations! Not only did we leave their office today braces free (removed earlier than planned) but my daughter was so excited and exclaimed that she felt like a whole new person and loved the person looking back in the mirror. I definitely recommend Dr. Don to anyone, everyone there is full of such caring and vibrant personalities and will take such good care of you or your child’s needs!
although i didn’t end up getting work done, Dr Wilson deserves 5 stars for his honest consultation and patient explanation of my teeth. really proves that he wants what’s best for his patients - no pressure to get any work done. thanks!
Dr. Wilson took us aboard about 2 years ago. His method of assessing our family's teeth was thorough and meticulous. When necessary, he made sure that he took X-Rays from different angles in order to get the best prognosis and course of treatment for our 'disorderly' teeth.
Throughout our treatment, we had to come to him many times, without advanced appointment, because we broke certain thread or braces. He and his crew always had time for us.
When we moved 3-hours away and about to go to school outside the US, Dr. Wilson consulted our initial X-Rays and course of treatment, and adjusted his schedule according to our plan! The result of his treatment was FIVE STARS!
Thank you, Dr. Wilson. We will be back...
My experience having adult braces from Dr. Wilson and team was Wonderful and left me with a smile I am proud of. His attention to detail and expertise is hard to find. I would highly recommend him anyone looking for a quality orthodontist that wants it done right the first time. His prices are extremely affordable for the latest technology in dental care. The office is creatively designed and the team is a close nit family that makes you feel welcomed and special every time.
Basic Care with Braces
Brushing and Flossing with Braces
This video shows how to brush your teeth with braces, how to use a proxy brush, and how to use a floss threader to get floss under the archwire of the braces so that you can properly floss your teeth. Proper oral hygiene is a crucial part of successful orthodontic treatment. You must have great oral hygiene in order to earn Dr. Don’s Tooth Tokens during treatment. As Dr. Don says “Floss only the teeth you want to keep!”
Rubber Band Wear
To create the most beautiful and functional bite, it is sometimes necessary for patients to wear rubber bands. Dr. Don will determine if you need rubber bands and will provide you instructions on how to use them. The teeth and jaws can only move toward their corrected positions if you consistently wear the rubber bands. Lack of cooperation following instructions will lengthen the treatment time.
How to Turn a Palatal Expander
Some patients will have a palatal expander during part of their treatment. After the expander is put in place, Dr. Don will give you instructions on how often to turn the screw inside the palate expander, and will also provide you with a key you will use to turn it. You will need to turn the expander yourself or have somebody else turn it for you. This video shows the proper technique for turning the palatal expander screw as well as common mistakes that can happen while trying to turn it.
AcceleDent Use & Care
If you have chosen to use AcceleDent Aura during your orthodontic treatment, please watch this video to learn about proper use and care.
Retainer Wear After Braces
Learn about wearing retainers after your braces are removed. Dr. Don recommends that retainers be worn all the time for 1 month after your braces are off (except when you are eating), and then worn nightly for as long as you want to maintain your beautiful smile…which means…for the rest of your life!
