Over four million people in the world wear braces. With no age limit on who can have braces put on, 25% of the people with braces are adults. Braces aren’t just for straightening teeth. Braces are common for people with misplaced teeth or misaligned jaws.
The process of getting braces only takes a couple of hours. First, the orthodontist will clean and dry your teeth. Next a bonding glue will be applied to your teeth to attach the brackets. Finally, the orthodontist will place the archwire in the brackets and will be secured with elastic bands. Naturally, this will cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. You will be restricted to a diet of only soft foods for the first few days. Braces will take a little while to get used to so it is important to be patient. Good dental hygiene is crucial to keeping your teeth healthy while going through the process.
Finding an orthodontist you are comfortable with is the first thing you should do. Moving to a new orthodontist in the middle of having braces can set you back on when you will get them off. So if you have to change orthodontists, it is important to get your dental history transferred.
There are many local places you can see about getting dental assistance.
