Braces, Get Excited!
Sometimes the unknown can be frightening. When we’ve never experienced something we can become nervous. Having your braces put on can be a scary situation when you aren’t exactly sure how it works. In order to make it a little less nerve-racking, we have a few pointers.
Sometimes surprises aren’t fun. We love the occasional unexpected gift or a random bonus at work but what about when you walk out to the driveway and find your tire is flat? That’s an unpleasant surprise. In order to avoid any unpleasant surprises, enlighten your child on how the process of getting braces works. At Newman Orthodontics we provide a thorough description of how braces are put on during your initial consultation, as well as before the actual procedure takes place.
Talk about your own orthodontic experience (if you have one), and how your perfect smile was worth all of the work. After all, your smile is the best form of a greeting 🙂

Make your braces your own! We offer so many cool different colors for every patient to customize their braces and feel unique. Pick your color, then pick your pattern. This is a safe bet to excite your apprehensive child.
Just because your starting treatment doesn’t mean you can eat the things you enjoy. You will just have to make some adjustments to your diet, nothing hard sticky or chewy!
