Braces FAQs Answered 

How Long Will I Be Wearing Braces? 

Every case is different. There is no definite answer to this question. The best way to know is to ask your orthodontist but even then, orthodontists can only provide you with estimations.  

It depends on how fast your teeth align and how diligent you are to show up during your adjustments. The treatment time largely depends on how crooked, misaligned, or crowded your teeth are.  

Do Braces Hurt? 

This is one of the common questions that gets asked a lot. Do braces hurt? Braces can feel uncomfortable and they may hurt for the first couple of days but eventually, you’ll get used to them.  

After a week, people say they don’t feel pain and discomfort anymore. It’s also common to feel discomfort after having your braces adjusted because of the pressure exerted on your teeth. But, again, the pain will subside. You may take over-the-counter painkillers to ease the discomfort.
