Embracing change from day one

From the moment your braces are secured, a new chapter begins. Let’s break down what the initial phase will look like, especially during the all-important first week:

Initial adjustment period

The first few days with your braces might feel like a whirlwind of sensations. It’s perfectly normal to experience some soreness as your teeth start their journey towards alignment. This discomfort is a sign that your braces are doing their job. During this time, the soft tissues of your mouth, such as your cheeks and lips, will begin to adapt to the new hardware they’re sharing space with. To ease this transition, we provide soft orthodontic wax that can be applied to any part of your braces causing irritation.

Sensation of a changing bite

It may seem odd at first, but feeling your bite change is a typical experience when wearing braces. As your teeth start to move, your bite will adjust. This change, while noticeable, is a positive indicator of progress and will stabilize as your teeth align.

Tips for navigating the first weeks of braces

Pain Management

Over-the-counter pain relief can be helpful during the first few days. Additionally, soft foods will be your best friends as your teeth and jaws adjust to the new pressure.

Oral Hygiene Adaptation

Learning to clean around your braces is crucial. We’ll equip you with the tools and techniques for effective brushing and flossing, ensuring your oral health remains a top priority.

Embrace Soft Foods

Stock up on soft foods that are easy on your teeth and braces. Smoothies, soups, and pasta are excellent choices during this adjustment period.

Utilize Orthodontic Wax

Don’t hesitate to use the orthodontic wax provided. It’s there to help you combat any irritation your braces might cause against the inside of your mouth.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water helps with overall oral hygiene and can alleviate some of the discomfort.

Beyond the first week: adapting to life with braces

Adapting to braces includes learning how to eat with them, understanding how to clean them properly, and adjusting to how they feel in your mouth. Rest assured, these adjustments will become second nature in no time.

As you move beyond the initial adjustment period, you’ll find that many of the early discomforts start to diminish. Your mouth will become more accustomed to your braces, and soon, they’ll feel like a natural part of your smile. Remember, our team at Family Orthodontics of Wellington is here to support you every step of the way. If you have concerns or need adjustments, we’re just a call away.

Life with braces is a journey with ups and downs, but the destination—a stunning, healthy smile—is well worth it. We’re excited to be part of this transformative phase of your life.
