Does it hurt to have braces?

The first thing you are going to notice when your braces are put on and each time they are adjusted

is an achy feeling in your teeth, especially when you bite down. Dental braces also known as orthodontic

braces or braces and are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position

them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health.

When you first get your braces, you may notice that your teeth and mouth feel a little tender or sore.

This is perfectly normal and we “Orthodontics” promise your mouth will not be sore forever. In order to

align your teeth and correct your bite, dental braces must be used to help move your teeth to the correct position.

General Soreness

When you get your braces on, you may feel general soreness in your mouth, and teeth

may be tender to biting pressures for three to five days. This can be relieved by rinsing your mouth

with a warm saltwater mouthwash. Dissolve one teaspoonful of salt in eight ounces of warm water,

and rinse your mouth vigorously. Placing Orabase on the affected area may help; this can be found in

a pharmacy. If the tenderness is severe, take aspirin or whatever you normally take for headache or similar pain.

The lips, cheeks and tongue may also become irritated for one to two weeks as they toughen and become

accustomed to the surface of the braces. You can put wax on the braces to lessen this. We’ll show you how!

What are the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation?

A beautiful smile can help build self-confidence, and it all starts in childhood with good dental care.

Subtle problems with the jaw or teeth may appear as early as age 7.

Fortunately, dental issues are easier to correct at an early age, thus reducing the risk of complications in the future.

For this reason, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children

have their first orthodontic check-up by age 7.

Why is age 7 considered the optimal time for screening?

By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, an orthodontist

can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors

can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding or gummy smiles. Timely screening increases the chances

for an incredible smile.

Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment.

Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic

intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin

treatment when it is ideal.

What are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can help patients renew their self-esteem because it helps them have a healthier and

more vibrant smile. In addition to improving one’s appearance, a number of other benefits to having orthodontic

treatment include the following:

The risk of periodontal disease is reduced

Chewing is more comfortable

Teeth are less likely to become broken off due to grinding

Facilitates good oral hygiene by making it easier to brush and floss the teeth

The threat of headaches and jaw pain is reduced

Digestion is improved

and eliminated the need for extensive dental work in later years, which ultimately saved them money.
