    you can check their policy, some allow you to miss one, some refer you back to your general dentist if you dont attend without prior warning. Its definitely worth calling them tomorrow (asap) to see if you can reschedule

    We aren't your dentist so we wouldn't have a definitive answer.

    Some dentists can give you three chances or may give you no chances. Just try and call them and see what they say.

    Orthodontist tend to have long waiting lists so you could be waiting months for an appointment.

    I'm sorry but it's true. I got braces a couple of weeks ago and had to wait 6 months between each appointment.
