Do you know that in olden days, orthodontic treatment was not so comfortable ?
The olden day braces were bigger in size and used bands on most of the teeth, including your front teeth! This was the reason for the origin of the term “Metal Mouth” or “Train-tracks”. The teeth had to be separated with thick elastics called as separators, to help in fixing the bands around your teeth. Believe me, it was definitely not a wonderful experience during olden days!
Today you are lucky because braces have advanced and apply very minimal pressure on your teeth. You can get your braces treatment done with minimal discomfort. You even have invisible braces which are discreet and not easily seen by others !
