For Kids

Kids, actually, pre-adults, we know that getting braces is a big change in your life. Chances are, some of your friends may already have braces. Whether they assure you that braces are painless and fun, or some tease that are painful and awful, we are here to straighten out a few things:

Do Braces Hurt?

While you may experience tenderness and soreness after adjustments, getting the braces on and wearing them does not typically hurt. If you experience pinching or poking from a wire, you can use dental wax to lessen the irritation. For a few days after the adjustment, you may want to stick to softer foods like fish, yogurt, and mashed potatoes until the tenderness to bite wears off.

How Long Will I Have Braces?

Every mouth is different, so every treatment is different. You can expect to wear braces for 1-2 years. With AcceleDent® Optima™ technology available only at TS Orthodontics in North West North Carolina, you can expect to get your braces of sooner!

Are There Certain Foods I Can’t Eat?

Unfortunately, certain foods have to be eliminated from your diet. Foods that are chewy (like bagels), sticky (like caramel), hard (like ice), or crunchy (like raw carrots) must be avoided in order to reduce the length of your treatment.

Can I Still Play Sports?

Yes! If you have metal braces, you will want to wear a brace-ready mouth guard that protects both your braces from impact and your mouth from the braces.

Can I Still Play My Instrument?

Yes! You will automatically adjust to your new appliance and be able to play the same way you did before!
