So you’ve become interested in braces? You may
need braces for your teeth or to correct an overbite. Regardless of the cause,
you’re not alone; nearly four million Americans wear braces. But before you
delve into the depths
of orthodontics, you should know a few things about braces.
Having A Minor
Lisp Is Possible
As a result, when you get braces to straighten
your teeth, you can have a slight lisp. Why? There is absolutely no possibility
that having metal braces on your teeth won’t affect how you speak. This is
normal, and you will get used to it.
Lip balm Will Help
Lip balm will be essential to your happiness
throughout treatment. This is already the case when the orthodontist places the
brackets in your mouth on the first day. There is no way to moisturize your
lips during this process, which can take many hours. You should carry some
nourishing lip balm to your appointment to prevent pain.
Uncomfortable For The First Few Weeks
Your front tooth has probably never had
anything attached to it before, and now each of your teeth is covered in two
rows of brackets. That will take some time, but it will happen astonishingly
quickly. You won’t even be able to recall how you appeared before getting
braces in a few weeks!
