Getting braces treatment can be quite daunting as the mouth is a very sensitive part of the body. Many patients are afraid of the potential painful side effects of having braces, particularly children getting braces. Braces may be uncomfortable after they have been placed on and at some adjustment appointments, however for the most part braces to straighten teeth are not altogether too scary.
We at Norwest Orthodontics understand that getting orthodontic treatment can take time getting used to for all ages. To help alleviate these concerns, we have put together a list of common concerns or problems that patients may experience. When patients can anticipate what their orthodontic treatment involves, we see that they are a lot more relaxed, as they feel they have more control over their treatment.
The team at Norwest Orthodontics try to make orthodontic treatment as painless as possible. Just remember, a beautiful straight smile awaits!
