FAQs

1. Which Dental specialist should I choose if I need braces?: 
Ans. See a Dentist who has specialized in Orthodontics.


2. Will the wires prick my gums?
Absolutely not. These wires are only to be put on to your teeth rather than the gums and only move your teeth into the desired positions and do not prick your gems. 

3. Will my teeth become loose after treatment?
To a degree, yes. The force on your teeth will move them through the hard bone and until new bone forms around the tooth roots, you'll feel as if the teeth are loose. However, this is no cause for worry as the strength will return once the new bone around it forms.

4. What is the ideal age to get the treatment done?
14-18 years for girls and 14-21 years for boys. These are the ages when the maximum growth occurs and dentists prefer to take advantage of this. 

5. What should I do if a piece of the wire comes off?
No need to panic. This is normal given the fact that the wires are bathed in saliva at all times. Call your dentist, fix up an appointment and relax. 

6. How should I brush my teeth during the treatment duration?
This is the most important step in the whole treatment. You have to keep your teeth as clean as possible. It will be difficult in the initial days and you will be given a special orthodontic brush, which will help you keep your teeth clean during this period.
