One of our concerns prior to orthodontics is the possibility of sores during orthodontic treatment, how extensive they will be and how are they going to affect our daily life. Wearing braces can increase the possibility of sores but very few patients suffer them.
Sores usually occur because your body needs to get used to having something brand new on top of your teeth.
Patients wonder what type of orthontic braces they should choose. Transparent or ceramic brackets are the most esthetic options of visible orthodontics. Since technology has improved the look and function of clear braces, they work as well as the metal braces without being so visible.
Those who have worn braces know that a mild discomfort is experienced after the start of orthodontic treatment. Those who have never worn orthodontic treatment or are about to start treatment, certainly have heard of this discomfort. Do not worry! It is a mild disconfort! And best of all, is temporary!
