It seems like your mouth has become asymetrical after getting braces One side seems more puffier at the bottom Is this because your braces are pushing against one side of your mouth more than the othe?

While moving your teeth, one side may move slower or faster than the other. "Puffy" gums, however, are usually the result of inadequate brushing and flossing. It's best to check this with your orthodontist, pediatric dentist or general dental specialist.
