    Your place it just the best! I love the board you have that says if you a new patient or if your getting your braces on or off! The people at the front desk are so helpful! The people working on your mouth are just so gentle! Really kid friendly! I just wish they had more colors for your braces. But really out standing all over!

    We drive 25 minutes to see Dr Sumsion, and it's worth it. He has seen my daughter who needed braces at age 8 to correct her bite. I got two estimates and his plan was more comprehensive, both in treatment plan and information given about her mouth, and the cost was less than the other orthodontist. Her first phase is off and her teeth look great. Now second son has braces on and we can't believe how fast his teeth are improving. The office staff is friendly, the environment is cheerful. We recommend Park city Orthodontics to everyone.

    I had to do the two phases of braces. They are great at making sure I was comfortable and had the stuff I need between visits and getting extra if I needed it. I even beat my Mom out of braces. They are very Kid friendly!

    I love my smile. Very fun and friendly staff. They have lots of "extras" for their patients. They have movie days and a smile miles that are a fun perk to getting braces.

Retainer Use

retainerRemovable Retainers

• Wear your retainers according to the doctor’s instructions.

• Take your retainers out when eating, and always put retainers in their case! (Most appliances are lost in school lunchrooms or restaurants.)

• Clean retainers thoroughly once a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Use warm but not hot water. Brushing retainers removes the plaque, and eliminates odors. Efferdent® or other orthodontic appliance cleaners can be used, but do not take the place of brushing.

• When retainers are not in your mouth they should ALWAYS be in a retainer case. Pets love to chew on them!

• Initially, you may find it difficult to speak. Practice speaking, reading, or singing out loud to get used to them faster.

• Retainers are breakable, so treat them with care. If retainers are lost or broken call us immediately.

• If you have any questions or concerns about your retainers, or your retainers need adjusting, call us. Do not try to adjust them yourself.

• Always bring your retainers to your appointments.

• Retainer replacement is expensive; with proper care they will last for years!

• Remove retainers when swimming.

• Keep retainers away from hot water, hot car dashboards, pockets, the washing machine, and napkins.

 

“Permanent” Retainers

Sometimes “permanent” retainers can be placed on the inside of teeth. This refers to a wire that is bonded with dental adhesives and can be easily removed without damage or alterations to the teeth. Special care is needed to maintain the bonding and hygiene.

• Flossing is easy from the top and front.

• Extra brushing is needed between the retainer and the gingiva (gums).

• Be careful when trying to thread floss of cleaners under the wire. Over aggression may cause recession of the gingiva.

• If a tooth becomes dislodged from the wire, please call our office to have it re-cemented before a tooth moves.
