Award-Winning McKinney TX Orthodontist Shares What Life Is Like With Metal Braces

mckinney tx orthodontistThe most commonly worn type of braces continues to be traditional metal braces, and with good reason. This tried-and-true method of straightening teeth has helped countless orthodontic patients with a wide variety of concerns, including crossbites, underbites, overbites, gaps between teeth, overly crowded teeth, and even speech impediments.

Metal braces consist of brackets attached semi-permanently to each tooth and then held together by a long wire. This long wire is called an archwire. Our award-winning McKinney TX Orthodontist, will place the brackets on your teeth in such a way that the archwire will appear perfectly straight when it connects them.

Our McKinney TX Orthodontist Shares What You Should Know Before You Get Metal Braces

Of course, every patient is different, and not everything listed in this article will necessarily apply to you. That being said, here are some of the common experiences that people tend to have when they first get their new braces.

  • After an adjustment, your mouth may be mildly sore or achy. This is normal.
  • You will need to avoid certain foods and drinks that can damage your braces. Our McKinney TX Orthodontist will be able to give you a list of foods and drinks to avoid.
  • Sometimes the brackets can irritate your gums while you adjust to your new braces. Our orthodontist can give you some special wax to place over your braces to help alleviate this.
  • You will need to pay special attention to how you brush and floss your teeth in braces. Ask our McKinney TX orthodontist for advice on how to do this best.

At our orthodontics office in Frisco, TX, we do our best to make your treatment with braces as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Dr. Wilson and his staff are amazing. We have two kids 16 & 13... 16 year old just got braces off and she looks great. Dr. Wilson did what was needed (and only what was needed) and she is very happy with her straight teeth. Son just started the process and we know he is in good hands with Dr. Wilson and his staff. We would highly recommend Dr. Wilson too anyone looking for an orthodontist.
