If you are thinking of going on that adventure of a perfect dentition and a confident smile by getting braces, then this is definitely for you. Like the saying goes," no pain no gain", getting braces is definitely going to be a long and challenging journey, but trust me it's worth every sacrifice; the ideal dentition, the broad smile, the confidence you will carry, name it! But, before you hit that road, here is what you need to know.

Patience is key

Remember, getting that broad and confident smile doesn't come overnight. Braces usually stay on for about 1 to 3 years, depending on your needs. Patience is your best friend here. You'll have to be patient and trust the process.

Food habits will change

Get ready to say a temporary goodbye to some munchies. Sticky, hard, or chewy foods are a no-go with braces. It's heartbreaking, I know, but it's all for the greater good of your teeth. It’s a small price to pay for the perfect dentition.

Brushing becomes a big deal

Brace yourself for some serious brushing and flossing. With braces, keeping your teeth clean takes more effort. You’ll need to brush after every meal to keep those braces sparkling and your teeth healthy.

A bit of discomfort

To be honest, braces can be a bit uncomfortable, especially after tightening sessions. Your mouth may feel sore, but don't worry, it's all part of the journey to a perfect smile. It gets easier with time.

Gentle reminder, braces aren't for a partiular age group. Kids as well as adults can have braces. It's never too late to straighten your teeth and boost your confidence.
