AnswerNo. It took an hour for doing just the top set on mine.....I still have to go back and get the bottoms put on. They will use glue to stick a "bracket" to the centre of each tooth. Then they will use a wire that joins to each bracket which will be stiff and bring your teeth into place. Around each bracket they put a tiny elastic band to keep the wire in place on the bracket.

They will put two large metal rings around your back teeth to anchor the wire in place. A metal brace will run up from the ring, across the roof of your mouth to the other ring.

Then depending on the person, you may get other "equipment" to help straighten your teeth. "Head gear" is common, which is a device that goes around the back of your head and puts pressure on your mouth. You wear it at night.

They may use "lackeys" to put a smaller amount of pressure on gaps.

After putting on the braces, many people find their teeth are sore for the first couple of days. My sister was very sore, and ate nothing but yoghurt. I didn't have any trouble at all. Your teeth should move into place very quickly, but then you have to continue to wear the braces until they "settle" into that place as they will move straight back if you take it off.

After a couple of months, the orthodontist may change the wire in your mouth to a stronger wire which will move your teeth even further.

Good luck!

Do braces hurt while putting them on?

To me the braces doesn't hurt. Before thinking of getting braces think of a person putting super glue on your teeth it doesn't hurt that bad. Then you can choose your color for your braces 1 time every month. But if you put your braces like when you are 17 it hurts more so I recommend you to do your braces as soon as possibleI took out my braces already. =]

What is the process of braces?

The full process is quite a long duration. Your first appointment is your exam, where they will tell you if they think you need braceS. then your second one is getting x-rays and a mould of your teeth ( this bit can make you gag) also they take a couple of photos. Then the next appointment will be getting the braces on. First they put rings around your back molars and then they clean your teeth. Then they put glue on your teeth and the brackets are bonded on. They put a blue light on them and wait for it to dry. Then you pick your colours and they put the wire in and secure it with your chosen colour bands. This is all painless!! You get them off after 1-3 years on average, then you have a retainer to make sure they dont shift back into their crooked position

What do you need at home to take care of your braces?

Here is a list of the items my dentist has recommended I use for my newly installed braces. 1.) floss with threaders so you can get it between braces and teeth. 2.)wax to put between any braces that rub your gums and cheeks. 3.) a good toothbrush and paste of your choosing, an electric brush does the best job. 4.) having dentek easy brush cleaners with you when away from home is good for removing food until you can get to a brush and floss. 5.) my dentist also has me use flouride mouth wash every other day. Hope this helps!

I have orthodontic braces on my parents got them for me at age 17 now I'm 19 and i cant afford to continue the payments I live in another state now with my sister How do I get the braces off?

All four of my children had braces, and while none of them moved during the process, the braces generally only stayed on for two years. By doing the payment plan, I generally had the braces completely paid by 1 1/2 years anyway. Have you checked with your parents on what exactly they have already paid? Maybe they have already paid the majority of it if not all of it, and if you call the Ortho that put them on for you, I would think they would go ahead and remove them. The amount you pay during the course of the contract is for putting them on, maintenence of the braces and removal of the braces. So if your parents already paid for the contract, all you should have to do is go back to that Ortho and have them remove them for you. Check the specifics of your contract. addendum: if you are not able to go back to that orthodontist, call around local offices or visit the local university orthodontic program to see if they can help. this service will cost some money, and it would be worth comparing the price with what it would cost to continue.
