During your appointment
Dr. Haney will spend the appointment preparing your teeth for braces and then fixing brackets to each of your teeth. It will be a new experience having something cemented to your teeth, but the process should not cause any discomfort. Communicate with the staff if you have questions, are feeling uncomfortable, or need to take a break. We are here for you!
Once the brackets and wires are installed, the team will ask if you feel any poky wires or discomfort. Take a minute to feel around with your tongue and open and close your mouth. If you feel anything poking your gums, let the staff know. We can snip pesky wires and make small adjustments so that you leave our clinic as comfortable as possible.
