Getting your braces on could be a little confusing for first timers, you will have lots of questions and confusions, and here are some of those frequently asked questions answered by the experts at SmileStation –
How long will the procedure take?
Well, it should not take more than hour including the set up time.
Do you want to know in advance if your braces are going to come off?
In this case probably your orthodontist will most likely inform you prior and also will expect you to be ready to have your braces removed at the next visit. However, this is only a guess but if your teeth move non-deliberately, or not enough, during the appointments, then removal may be postponed.
How about the pain?
This is a game of pressure and no pain, but there may be slight discomfort and pain while having your new retainer.
What are the expectations?
The orthodontist will use pliers to remove the brackets thoroughly and scrape clean all the glue sediments on your teeth, and take a mold for your new retainer.
The next question will definitely be how will your teeth look?
How it looks is entirely dependent on how well you cared for them while the braces were in use. They may look perfect if you cared for them well, if not they may look bad covered with yellow tartar and marks usually termed as white scars if the job was not executed well.
Finally you need to learn about how to care for them after the treatment.
Experts at SmileStation have some valuable after care tips to retain good oral health. It is advised to wait at least for a month before any sort of bleaching or whitening treatment is opt by you after the braces treatment. This will give the newly exposed enamel some time to become less sensitive.
Also your teeth and gums will remain sensitive at first. It’s ok to keep away some crunchy and chewy foods for a while.
And finally it’s important to schedule a dental cleaning after a few days to identify if there are likely any areas that have been neglected over the past that needs treatment or repair.
