Very little. The first few days of orthodontics and in appointments where new adjustments are made, the patients may experience some pain, but the pain disappears on its own. The pain from orthodontics is very insignificant compared to the pain from tooth extraction, root canal, etc. In case of any pain, the patient can also use mild painkillers the first few days.
Early orthodontic treatment is not necessary for all children; some orthodontic treatment can more easily treat in the teen years when all permanent teeth are come out. The doctor can decide whether early treatment is necessary for your child or not.
One of the advertisements lately seen in social media and other places is straightening the teeth without orthodontics, referred to as one-day orthodontics, orthodontics with laser, fast orthodontics, etc. In these methods, in fact, there is no movement of the teeth and just the extruded and crooked parts are pared down along with the enamel. The recessed parts are filled with laminate and composite. As patients may already know, although these methods are cheaper and faster than orthodontics, they won’t have the durability and permanent effectiveness of orthodontics. In these methods, the teeth will decay in the pared areas and after a while the composites will change color and need further repair. Therefore, it is advised to be patient and with the increased awareness and understanding of the importance of healthy teeth, don’t make a mistake in choosing the wrong options with irreparable consequences

I have orthodontics on my upper teeth. My orthodontist suggested that two of my upper teeth (4,4) should be removed. But, he extracted tooth no.3 from one side and no.4 from the other side. I was very concerned and in my next appointment asked him why he extracted tooth no.3? Was it a mistake? He said either I didn’t have tooth no.3 from birth or it’s been removed before. I’m very concerned. I look forward to your response. Thanks a lot.
Dr. Hadi Darvishpour :
In treatments, especially the ones associated with tooth extraction, the orthodontist usually applies braces on both jaws, and if there is a tooth missing at one side (for example, a canine is missing), either from birth or it’s been removed before, no tooth will be extracted from that side, and only from the other side.
Greetings. It is better to use both dental floss and interdental toothbrush to have a better or more precise hygiene.
  There are five most common braces including a metal brace, ceramic braces, lingual braces, self-ligating brace, and Invisalign. But your doctor can diagnose which type is right for you after the clinical checkup.

I am 21-year-old and I had brace for 3 years. Recently I start smoking just for 3 to 4 times per month. Does smoking affect orthodontic treatments?
Dr. Hadi Darvishpour :
Generally, smoking is harmful for dental health and during orthodontic treatment, you should observe oral hygiene very well. But it is better consult with your special orthodontist and follow his/her recommendations.
No, removable functional orthodontic just improve jaw problems before maturation but after maturation you need to have brace and jaw surgery together.
No. Functional orthodontics is effective at an earlier age. This type of treatment is usually done at the age of 11 to 14 in boys, and 10 to 13 in girls.
Hi. The cost of lingual orthodontics is approximately between 20 and 25 million tomans.
