prepare you for Braces” describes the things you must know about the appointment at the dentist and also how to prepare. Find out more!
First, braces should be clean and thoroughly cleaned. Most orthodontists require this. The reason for this is that braces are more effective when they’re attached to clean teeth. A good practice is to carry chapstick for your appointment. The dentist may use instruments to dry your lips and teeth. It’s possible your lips might get chapped.
Another option is to purchase orthodontic wax. It may take some time before your teeth adjust to braces. While the parts made of metal might rub into your mouth in a way that is uncomfortable, using wax helps ease pain and protect you from injury. Braces can also affect your eating habits. There is a chance that you won’t be able to chew certain food items during a period of time. Prior to visiting your dentist, be sure you’ve looked into the options available.
