If your teeth need a little extra help, you may have to wear headgear with wires attached to your teeth. If you do have to wear headgear, don't panic!! You probably have to wear it at night or in the evening.


most people usually wear braces for about two years. After that, they may need to wear a retainer which is small, hard piece of plastic with metal wires OR a thin pieces of plastic shaped like a mouth guard. It is to make sure your teeth don't go wandering back to their original places. Usually, you might have to wear it all day and night for 2 years, 6 months or for many years. ^^. Its just depend on your teeth.

On the day your braces are removed, you will get a gorgeous smile!! =)

p/s : Call the dentist, now !
