5 Things You Need to Know Before Getting Dental Braces

Posted on 3/8/2021 by Dr Jonathan Ford
Getting dental braces can be a scary experience. However, that is usually because all people know about braces is that they hurt, and they involve a lot of food restrictions. In reality, there's a lot more to dental braces than just that. Here are five things you need to know before getting dental braces.

There Will Be Some Discomfort and Pain

It's better to rip the Band-Aid right off, so we better make this clear. There will be some discomfort and pain from wearing dental braces. The constant pressure and shifting of the teeth will cause aching gums and even sores in the mouth.

However, if you start experiencing unbearable pain, contact Dr. Jonathan Ford at Ford Dental Group to get your braces checked, and any sores treated right away.

They Are Not Just for Teeth Straightening

Most people assume dental braces are only for those who want straight teeth. While that is the most common reason, it is not the only reason behind getting dental braces. We also recommend getting dental braces to fix any jaw misalignments, bite problems, and more.

You Can Get Braces at Any Age

People also assume dental braces to be only for kids or teenagers. In reality, you can get braces at any age, as long as your teeth and gums are strong enough, for corrective treatment. You can reach out to us by calling at (714) 409-6161 to discuss your braces options.

Dental Braces Have to Be Worn for Two Years on Average

While the exact treatment period varies from case to case and the severity of the condition, on average, dental braces have to be worn for about two years. Sometimes, the teeth can be aligned in as little as six months, and sometimes, it can even take more than three years.

Your Dentist Will Be Your Best Friend

During your entire braces period, your dentist will be your best friend. Any time you have pain, have trouble eating or brushing, find it difficult to speak, we can help get you sorted right away.

So, the most important part of wearing dental braces is to schedule regular appointments with your dentist for a smooth and trouble-free experience.
