WHAT TO EXPECT
Once your brace is fitted, it will take a little time to get used to it. Be prepared: as the teeth begin to move – they may ache! Take comfort in the fact that this is merely a sign that your teeth are moving and that your brace is doing its job. Also: take painkillers if you need them! The initial discomfort will ease after few days. The brace may rub and annoy the inside of your mouth. If so, let us introduce you to your new best friend: orthodontic wax! We’ll provide it for you. Simply tear a bit off, soften it between your fingers and stick it onto the offending bracket. Top tip: if out of wax, sugar-free chewing gum is always a good alternative.
