Be Prepared For Some Discomfort

Stock Up Soft Foods

Have Pain Reliever Available

Taking an over-the-counter painkiller to see the orthodontist will ease any form of discomfort your new braces will cause in the first days of use. Make sure there is a supply of pain relievers before you have the braces put on, in case you are required to take one.
