First Day in Braces

First Day in Braces

Once your braces are placed, it will take some time for your mouth to get used to them. You may experience some soreness or tenderness, this is normal and won’t last longer than a few days. We will provide you orthodontic wax to soothe any irritation.

To alleviate the soreness and sensitivity of your teeth, you can take some over-the-counter pain reliever medications such as Tylenol or Advil to manage the discomfort.

The adhesive that attaches the braces to your teeth will take many hours to finish setting. You can eat as soon as you leave the office but please remember to stick to the list of foods that are not harmful to your braces. We even recommend sticking to a soft diet during the first few days of having your braces to allow your mouth to get used to eating with braces.
