Getting your braces on is an easy and painless process. Plan to be with us for about an hour and a half on that day.
Once the braces are on, we do our best to make it as pain free as possible and minimize the chances of having pokey wires irritating your cheeks or gums. As teeth start to shift they might be a little sensitive and sore. It varies from patient to patient, but typically lasts around eight hours.
We recommend that you stick to soft foods that are easy to chew during the first week or so. We will give you a list of foods to avoid.
Should you have a weird wire that continues to poke you, give us a call and we will put it in its place! Call 615.613.1504.
