Yes it can be normal especially if the dentist worked on that side of your mouth the longest. Try swishing with warm, salt water (approx. 1/2 tsp. in a small glass of water.) This is good for keeping the bacteria down. If this doesn't help in a couple of days it's a good idea to revisit your dentist. Good luck Marcy

How many appointments do you have to go to before getting braces?

Well, first you need photos and x-rays and then, you like get a mold of your teeth and then your get braces! You're dentist should tell you this! ( I fixed your spelling. ) The amount of appointments before you get your braces, varies on what your teeth look like. If your teeth are really crowded, you will probably have to get these little rubber Os inserted between your teeth and wear them for about two weeks, or have a couple removed. Some people get them the next appointment, some have to wait for five appointments to get braces on. Either way, you are going to get the braces, so don't worry.

What is the function of braces?

Though uncomfortable and often painful, braces serve the purpose of straightening teeth. This process is done by a person called an orthodontist. The orthodontist specializes in everything involving braces and retainers. Most people who have braces are only subjected to them for a couple years. Head gear and rubber bands are couple of mechanisms that are used to speed up the braces process. Depending on how crooked a person's teeth are, braces can be on anywhere from one year to four years. The best way to reduce that time is to follow the orthodontist's instructions on how to maintain braces. A simple way to keep teeth healthy and happy is simply to brush and floss often. If you do this, your experience with having a metal mouth will most likely be no big deal!

Can you tell me All About braces?

Okay, for most people, braces is scary. For one, they are sticking unfamiliar objects such as metal, into your mouth. When the braces are being put on there is a glue they use to stick the braces on. If the glue touches your tongue, it wont taste good. Once you've had braces on for the first couple days, your mouth gets sore and you may feel like a weight is on your teeth. But, don't worry, because after about a month or two, your braces will feel fine and normal. Use the wax that your orthodontics give you to keep your braces from cutting the sides of your mouth. You will get a few minor cut on the side of your mouth but after all, it is metal. Don't worry, and keep any pain killer you use to help prevent pain in reach. Nobody ever said getting braces would be easy, they just said it was worth it.
