If you are given headgear as part of your treatment, we recommend that you wear the appliance for a minimum of 12-14 hours every day. The more you wear your headgear, the more effective it will be – and the quicker you’ll be done with it! We’ll see you in the office every 6-10 weeks to make adjustments and check the device’s force and positioning. You will need to bring your headgear with you to every appointment.
Occasionally, a band may come loose, interfering with the head gear’s proper fit. If this happens, call us immediately to schedule an appointment so we can fix the band. Do not wear your headgear again until we have made these necessary repairs.
