And although it is painful because they are changing the physical positioning of the mouth and teeth it is not as bad as most people make it.

For example, a device that goes by the name of an appliance is designed to widen the mouth.   This sounds like some sort of torture device. And I suppose it could be and in some ways it is. But in reality, there is a slight amount of discomfort for a lifetime of proper dental health. In proper dental health leads to a better appearance and more confidence. Whereas real torture devices are designed to hurt with no positive outcome and appliance is designed to have a positive outcome and comes with a slight amount of and discomfort. The type of appliance that is used to expand your mouth is only one form of an appliance that orthodontists use to ensure you have optimal dental and oral structure.

Another tool that orthodontists use is the dreaded braces. Braces are utilized to herd your teeth and put them in line so that you can chew food correctly,  speak clearly, and have an attractive mouthful of teeth. Just like the appliances that are used braces do cause a slight amount of discomfort as they’re working their magic on your teeth. As you can imagine it is not easy to wrestle teeth into a place that they are not naturally in. As you know, teeth are firmly rooted in your gums therefore when adding an external force that moves them they are less than compliance and get a little cranky which results in a slight amount of discomfort. However, this discomfort does go away a few days following the initial installation of their braces and the follow-ups to tighten your braces. So it is a short-lived discomfort for a lifetime of happy smiles and proper speaking.

There is nothing to be afraid of or anxious about when going to the orthodontist. There is plenty to be excited about as they will improve your health by improving your mouth.
