You may have some discomfort especially during the 1st week of having fixed braces. Sometime you do get ulcers caused by the friction between your cheek and lip tissue against the metal surface. This is just a temporary discomfort that usually goes away within a week.
You may eat as usual but try to avoid eating hard foods such as nuts, hard candies or shellfish. Raw foods like apples, carrots and celery should be cut into small pieces before eating. Eating hard foods may dislodge the brackets from your teeth. If this happens, please let us know as soon to fix it back for you.
Time taken is highly dependable on each individual case. Simple cases may take just less than 6 months while severe cases may take up to 2 years. Our doctors will be able to advice you on it after analyzing your initial teeth condition.
