At first, she felt a little discomfort and annoyed with all the brackets, bands and wires around the mouth. She had two sleepless nights and ate only a small portion of food. It took her two weeks to adjust. A little reward helped her ease the feeling like preparing soft meal, soup and oatmeal. I know it was hard even without actually having to experience myself.
It is best to talk everything with the orthodontist and consult the proper way how to take care of the teeth. My daughter sometimes grinds her teeth at night. Good thing I mentioned the case of grinding and put the braces a little lower near the gums. I also bought an ortho-brush especially designed for teeth with braces. It is a soft bristled brush to prevent the removal of brackets.
Getting braces is an expensive treatment. The cost is an ordeal itself. Wearing braces is a painful experience but is definitely worth it because it will give a beautiful smile after the treatment.
