Is it going to hurt?
The placement of your braces will not hurt at all, although there may be some soreness or discomfort in the hours and days immediately placement. Over-the-counter medications can help with soreness or muscle ache, but make sure to consult the doctor before you take anything.
How long does treatment last?
The length of your treatment will depend on the plan decided upon between you and the doctor. Factors affecting the length of treatment can include the severity of your misalignment, patient compliance, age, and even height! That said, a typical round of orthodontic treatment can last between 12- 24 months.
How often will I have to see the doctor?
Appointments for adjustments are generally scheduled 6-8 weeks apart.
When should a child begin treatment?
Dr. Damon recommends monitoring as early as age 7, though treatment may not be necessary.
Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?
Nobody is too old for a beautiful smile!
Are metal braces my only option?
With advances in technology, your options are as diverse as you are! From traditional metal wire-and-bracket braces to the more concealed lingual and Invisalign options, you can choose whatever treatment fits best for you.
Are there foods I cannot eat while I have braces?
Yes. Once treatment begins, we will explain the complete instructions and provide a comprehensive list of foods to avoid. Some of those foods include: ice, hard candy, raw vegetables and all sticky foods (i.e. caramel and taffy). You can avoid most emergency appointments to repair broken or damaged braces by carefully following our instructions.watch video
How often should I brush my teeth while in braces?
Patients should brush their teeth at least four times each day – after each meal and before going to bed. We will show each patient how to floss his or her teeth with braces and may also provide a prescription for a special fluoride, if necessary.
Will braces interfere with playing sports?
No. It is recommended, however, that patients protect their smiles by wearing a mouth guard when participating in any sporting activity. Mouth guards are inexpensive, comfortable, and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
Will braces interfere with playing musical instruments?
No. However, there may be an initial period of adjustment. In addition, brace covers can be provided to prevent discomfort.
