Sometimes a wire can break depending on the food you consume (like hard candies, chips, veggies etc.) or the wires might just be too long towards the back of your mouth. You'll be able to feel a pokey archwire coming in contact with your gums if it happens.
It is normal to get cuts from braces, although, hopefully, most patients will avoid the occurrence during their treatment. Many people complete their treatment without getting cuts in the mouth from braces. Sometimes, the tongue might feel sore or receive minor scratches by the wire (especially with lingual braces.
Despite this, the brackets can still rasp against the inside of your lips and cheeks and leave sores on these soft tissues. Not only does this irritation cause discomfort, but these open cuts can potentially become infected and cause serious problems if left untreated.
It's not unusual to sometimes break a wire or bracket when you have braces. There's nothing to panic about, but you should take action to get your broken braces fixed. Damaged braces can cause discomfort, cuts and abrasions inside the mouth and, if left unfixed, make your treatment less effective.
Most patients experience some discomfort the first 4 days to a week after their braces, expanders, and/or wires are placed and after a wire adjustment and/or an activation appointment. Your lips and cheeks may need one to two weeks to get used to the braces on your teeth.
It is also common to experience minor pain in the cheeks for about a week after receiving braces for the first time. The soreness will disappear once the mouth becomes accustomed to the metal brackets. The inside of the mouth will become tougher after a few weeks, and any irritations should go away.
When you have braces, as your teeth move, the end of the wire may also shift a bit and start to stick out the back, poking you in the cheek or gum, and that can feel really uncomfortable. So there's a couple things you can do to ease your discomfort until you can get into the office to see us.
Certain foods can damage braces components like the rubber bands, wires, or even the bracket itself. Generally, avoid all foods that are sticky, hard, or chewy. Soft foods are most recommended for those who wear braces because they are gentler on braces hardware.
Most of the time, the most painful orthodontic sensations that people are afraid of is getting their braces put on and having them taken off. As far as getting them put on, braces do not cause pain. However, the tension between your teeth or under orthodontic bands can cause some soreness later in the day.
Getting your braces off isn't going to be a in-and-out process. Expect to spend approximately an hour in your appointment. Although taking off your braces won't take too long, the cleaning process after might. During this appointment you might also be fitted for your retainer.
Braces can be removed early if a patient absolutely insists, but there are many downsides to this decision. For starters, incomplete treatment may leave your overall dental health and tooth alignment worse than it was before you started.
Day 1: having the braces placed on your teeth is not painful. But as your teeth begin to move, they typically will become sore. The soreness you experience is not a sharp pain, but rather a dull ache that typically lasts not more than 2 or 3 days.
In most cases, the removal process takes around an hour. You may feel some pressure on your teeth as your orthodontist is working, but you should not expect to experience any pain or extreme discomfort.
Your eyelashes grow to a certain length, fall out, and a new lash grows in its place. The lashes that have been cut will not continue to grow, they'll eventually shed, and be replaced by a new lash that will grow to a normal length.
Crunchy foods — popcorn, chips, ice. Sticky foods — caramel candies, chewing gum. Hard foods — nuts, hard candies. Foods that require biting into — corn on the cob, apples, carrots.
A perfect smile is also achieved by braces through correcting misaligned jaws, which contribute to problems such as overbites, underbites, and bad proportions. By realigning the upper and lower parts of your jaw, your smile will look better and make your lips and jaw look proportionate to your face.
