10 Advantages of Daily Reinforcement

Posted by Jill Zimmerman at

Does your practice encounter any of the following?
  • retainers thrown away in trash
  • loose brackets
  • decalcification, decay and inflammation
  • treatment time overruns 
  • un-turning expander screws
  • extensive repairs
  • elastics on the wrong teeth

O'Neil Practice Resources On-the-Mirror Guides and ElasticCards are powerful tools to help tackle compliance challenges like these. 

When they see compliance information on the bathroom mirror every day, patients will be reminded of the important role they play in the success of their orthodontic treatment.
