There are things only people wearing braces North Lauderdale will understand. The saying “No pain, no gain” resonates deeply with brace wearers because they know the effort, dedication and sacrifice it takes to achieve a brilliant and attractive smile. The process can be downright excruciating and sometimes it may even cause a great deal of inconvenience. Nevertheless, people are still keen on getting braces all for the sake of enhancing their smile and improving oral functionality.
Don’t be surprised if some of your brackets come loose. Although it’s not supposed to come loose since these are securely cemented on the front surface of your teeth, there are instances when it will loosen and when they do, don’t ever attempt to glue it yourself. Book an appointment with your orthodontist and they will fix it for you. Never disregard loose brackets because if you don’t have these fixed you may choke on them and not only that your braces will not be effective.
You will be asked to regularly see your orthodontist for adjustments. Your braces will be tightened to move your teeth to the proper direction and to achieve the right alignment. Unfortunately, pain is part of the process and sometimes the pain can last for a couple of days. Not to worry because over time you will get accustomed to it. The pain is a result of the gentle pressure applied to move your teeth.
Brace wearers will be asked to avoid chewy and hard foods because these can get stuck in your teeth and destroy your braces. Chewy foods like caramel and hard foods like caramel have to be avoided while you’re on orthodontic treatment.
