Patience and Practice
The key to adjusting to your new braces is to be patient. It takes time to get used to wearing braces, and it may take a little bit before you feel comfortable talking with them. In the meantime, practice at home in front of a mirror or with a family member. This will help you get used to the feeling of having something in your mouth and will make it easier to talk with braces when you are out in public.
Orthodontic Wax Is Your Friend!
If you find that your braces are causing you discomfort, try using orthodontic wax. This can help alleviate any soreness or irritation. If the wax does not help, be sure to schedule an appointment with us so that we can make any necessary adjustments.
Body Posture and Confidence
It is also important to stand up straight and remain relaxed when speaking with braces. Your body is all connected, and your body posture and confidence will affect your speech. Practice good posture and relaxation techniques at home so that you can feel comfortable and speak confidently when out in public!
