What is Getting Braces Like?

Posted .

It can be intimidating to get braces to straighten your teeth or your children’s teeth. Here at Quality Orthodontic Care in Alpharetta, Georgia, we strive to make your orthodontic treatment as comfortable as possible. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment while getting braces.

At your first visit, our orthodontist, Dr. Brett Gluck will check your teeth to assess the alignment issues and take detailed impressions to make models of your teeth. By studying the models, he will form a plan of treatment for aligning your teeth.

At a follow-up visit, permanent braces will be attached to your teeth and adjusted to begin aligning your teeth. There may be a little initial discomfort or pain in the first phases of treatment, but it should pass soon.

Once the braces are installed, you will need to return to our office every few weeks for 18-24 months to adjust the wires straightening your teeth. This will constantly train your teeth into the alignment you need for a straight smile.

Straightening your teeth will have a huge impact on your quality of life. At the end of treatment, you’ll have a beautiful, strong smile you can be proud of. So, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
