Orthodontics FAQ: Will braces hurt?

Most prospective orthodontic patients are scared of the pain they have heard this treatment might cause. There are patients who are more sensitive and need some medication, at least in those first days, while others never have any pain through the treatment. Every patient and every treatment is different. The brackets are bonded right onto the tooth with special enamel glue. There is virtually no pain while the braces are being put on. We also encourage patients to go to our website at and view other patient’s testimonials, watch videos and just familiarize themselves a little bit more with the whole process.

The bottom line: don't let fear of braces get in the way of a beautiful new smile! Schedule a consultation with us to learn all your options, and to get to know our doctors and staff!
