Is it necessary to adjust braces every month?

It depends on the style of braces. We have self-ligating braces and only need to see our patients every 10-12 weeks for most of the treatment.

Is Invisalign supposed to smell?

No. You need to clean your teeth better in between every time the trays come out. And you need to do the exact same for the trays. Good luck!

Are self-ligating braces worth it?

100%. If the Orthodontist is trained in Self Ligating treatment the treatments are usually shorter, less painful, more efficient, and usually yield a better result.

Can tooth bonding be whitened?

No. It will have yo be replaced after whitening.

Do braces still work without tightening?

Only a bit. They need regular adjustments to function. And it is obviously recommended to use a trained orthodontist who understands the ins and outs to prevent problems.

Could a toothache be caused by getting braces?

Depends on what you are calling a toothache. Soreness is common, but rarely pain. Pain can occur, but it usually means either:

1. That tooth is hitting another tooth too much = traumatic occlusion

In California, it is required by state law. And you shouldn't move teeth without it. A tooth is like an iceberg. Only part of it is above the surface. Orthodontists are trained in looking for things that could cause you to lose teeth or damage other parts of your mouth, like your gums and bones. I've had patients that we have had to tell they are going to lose a front tooth because something was growing behind it and had already destroyed most of their root (the part holding your tooth in your jaw bones). And unfortunately the patient had no idea and said, "But I didn't have any pain."

Does getting braces tightened hurt more than getting them on?

No. The first day is almost always the worst because you are first starting to activate your body's physiology. After that, it's easier.

How do you relieve pain from a retainer?

Call your orthodontist. That needs to be evaluated in person.
