Wearing braces should be fun. So do not let braces stop you from enjoying life. Here are some pointers to make the treatment more comfortable.

Expect some soreness/discomfort for 1-2 days (for newer types of braces) and 3-4 days (for conventional braces) . These are usually well tolerated, and get better as treatment progresses. If required, panadol can be taken to help relieve the discomfort.

  • Swollen gums add to discomfort and slow the treatment process.
    - try to brush after every meal to achieve clean teeth and healthy gums.

  • Braces or wires irritating the lips/cheeks causing ulcers
    - cover the sharp edges with relief wax.

  • Wire extending too long in between visits
    - cover the wire with relief wax are return to the clinic to have wire cut.

  • One of the braces drops off
    - use the wax to stabilize the braces to prevent irritation, call the clinic.

  • While having braces, I had an accident and injured my mouth and teeth.
    - See a nearby dentist or hospital emergency as soon as possible. Damages to the braces can be repaired later.

  • I lost my retainers / my retainers are not fitting well.
    - call the clinic as soon as possible. Simple relapse can be treated easily. Too much relapse may require extensive re-treatment.
