What is the mold for braces?
An impression or mold of your teeth is taken the appointment BEFORE your braces are removed in order to make your retainers. The mold is sent to a dental lab where a custom wire retainer is made for your teeth. This way it will be ready for you at your next appointment, when the braces will be taken off.
Do they numb you for braces?
You could also try an oral anesthetic like Orajel or Anbesol to numb the area. Shop for dental pain relief. For the first few days after you get your braces put on or adjusted, eat soft foods to minimize pain from chewing.
Why do people get denied braces?
Often times, cases will get rejected by dentists or orthodontists who don’t regularly utilize Invisalign because they’re too complicated, time consuming or the doctor doesn’t have a high comfort level with complex tooth movements.

Molds are taken twice in the course of the treatment. The first impressions are taken before treatment begins so that the braces can be correctly designed for the best and most effective fit. The second impressions are taken after the braces are removed to accurately fit the retainer.

Do braces move your teeth everyday?
The short answer to the question of whether braces move your teeth everyday is yes. Nevertheless, due to the speed of teeth shifting, braces must be worn for significant and often, unfavorable lengths of time.
Are braces painful?
The honest answer is that braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious about the placement appointment. There will be mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the newly placed brackets, which may last for a few days to a week.
What is the first step for braces?
Attaching the braces Attaching the brackets, which are held in place on the teeth using a special dental glue, is the first step. The wire is then run through the brackets, which may be shaped in a particular way in order to ensure that the teeth are moving in the correct direction.
Do braces make your lips bigger?
Side note: If you’re wearing traditional braces using a bracket and wire system, you may temporarily notice that your lips look bigger. This is due to the extra width created between your teeth and lips.
What is the best age for braces?
Some children start their orthodontic treatment as young as six. However, most agree that the best age to get braces or another form of treatment is between the ages of 8 and 14, which is when the head and mouth are most conducive to straightening.
What happens if you get braces and then move?
If the move is a significant distance, they likely will have to find a new orthodontist to continue their treatment. In my experience, the majority of these “transfer” scenarios proceed smoothly. There are times though, that this transition does not go as planned for the family.
