What's It Like Living With Braces?

Wearing braces is a life-changing dental process you will not regret. The result of straight teeth that are not crowded and have the right bite pattern is certainly worth the months spent wearing orthodontic braces. Instead of dreading this time, create a positive mindset to embrace living life with braces. You can increase your confidence when wearing braces by smiling often and securely. Consider your new dental work as entrance into a select group of individuals who prize the health of their teeth as a reflection of their personal style. After the first week of slight discomfort, most wearers of braces hardly notice the difference.

How Life With Braces Will Affect You

Your new life in braces will naturally require some modifications to the foods you eat. Avoid hard and sticky foods and snacks for the obvious reasons. But also limit your intake of sugar and sweetened beverages. Sticky candies, soft foods and chewing on ice can all negatively affect appliances that correct dental irregularities. This is a great opportunity to embrace a healthy lifestyle, eating softer fruits, plenty of vegetables and grains; and enjoying baked or broiled chicken, and fish without bones. Discover how braces work to correct your smile.

When To Consider Braces

According to Harvard University, one-in-five orthodontic patients seeking braces are over the age of 18. Correcting dental bite issues or desiring braces for cosmetic improvement at an older age can be accomplished, but the time to correct dental issues with braces may take up to two years. With today's innovations in orthodontic appliances, such as invisible braces - the choice of living life with braces can even be a fashion statement. Some teenagers opt for colored wires or gold brackets to make an independent fashion statement through life with braces.

Love, love, love the whole staff here! I am being treated for adult orthodontic surgical braces to correct my underbite. Throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, finance/payment, greeting/exit of each appointment, and of course the talented and genuine staff that treat your teeth each time,
We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
