The fixed appliance for adults

The goal: align and engage teeth to restore an aesthetic smile and functional bite.

Teeth, as they align, will be sensitive for the first few days, especially when you chew food. To alleviate this problem, you can take painkillers.

For fast processing:

  • Do not remove or break anything
  • So avoid sticky foods like candy and toffee, and don't bite into fruits and vegetables like raw carrots or apples. Cut them into pieces before putting them in your mouth.
  • Don't bite your nails, or your pens!

Brackets and wires can irritate your cheeks and tongue: as soon as you feel any discomfort, apply the wax we’ve given you and reapply as often as necessary. After a few days, your lips will get used to it and all will be well! If the thread protrudes and stings at the back after a few days, it’s a sign that your appliance has already worked well. If you experience any discomfort, please contact us.

Dental hygiene:

Use a soft toothbrush (with a small head) and an interdental brush. With your brush, go under the wire while looking at yourself in the mirror. Brush your teeth 3 times a day after meals. Healthy gums are less sensitive, while poor hygiene can lead to cavities and gum problems.

Please note!
If one of your brackets comes off or a ring becomes unsealed and this bothers you, please contact us on 022.979.22.22!
