FIRST DAYS IN BRACESUploader: Zologis 3 month ago Subscribe 4
Although the brackets have been rounded and smoothed, until the cheek tissues have toughened, you may find it helpful to use a small piece of wax around the bracket that is creating the irritation. After each two-week period, the tray is changed and the next stage of movement takes place until the teeth are in correct alignment. Braces are smaller and lighter, with brackets that are cemented to the front surfaces of teeth rather than to bands that encircle the entire tooth except in the very back. You will probably notice some discomfort beginning a few hours after your braces are placed.
