Getting braces put on for the first time is the part of the treatment that many patients recall as being the scariest. Having a complex system of brackets, bands and wires in your mouth can feel very strange at first but the staff at Rapid Braces urges you not to overreact. Dr. Georgaklis has years of experience handling orthodontic cases for hundreds of patients. Having braces in your mouth for the first time will be a bit uncomfortable but everyone gets used to it quickly.
