Smile, and the World
Congratulations on getting started with your braces today at Hannon Orthodontics! Here is some information to help you as you get through the first few days with braces.
The adhesive used for attaching the braces to your teeth becomes strong right away, so you can eat any time after leaving our office. When eating, please avoid foods listed on the do not eat list and make sure to avoid any foods that are sticky or hard. Many of our patients will eat soft foods as they are getting used to their braces. Every person is different, so listen to what your body is telling you. Usually, you will be able to resume normal eating habits about three days after we put on your braces.
Your teeth will begin to feel “tight” around 3 to 4 hours after we put on your braces. Everyone handles discomfort differently. Some of our patients will have some discomfort while others will have very little. If you are having discomfort, don’t worry, it is very normal. We recommend that you take whatever medication you would normally take for a headache if it is needed. The tightness feeling usually subsides after a few days, rarely going longer than one week.
The inside of your cheeks and lips will have to get used to the braces being on the teeth as well. The braces that are used at Hannon Orthodontics are rounded and smooth. Your cheeks will toughen as they become accustomed to the braces being on your teeth. Dental wax can be helpful during this time.
Before leaving the office, there are routine steps which we ask you complete prior to leaving:
