ok so when my step daughter( i care for her full time) was 7 we found out one of her jaw was growing after than the other and that she had badly over cowed teeth that were very squint making it hard for her to bite with her front teeth the dentist said we need to see an orthostasis about her and my step son .my step son 10 and no as bad
so the orthodontist has said that my step daughter will need braces in July but they need to pull teeth out to get her ready so a few months ago they pulled out 6 teeth it was ment to be 9 but 3 feel out a few week before the opp . when they did x ray they found back mollers growing in wrong ways and a few other problems . so normally they wont do braces in the uk to 10 but my step daughter needs them now . so she turned 8 a few weeks ago so today someone said about her needing a draces toothbrush it hit me i don't know how to care for braces or what she need
i know they will most likely explain it all to me in July before they get fitted but can only tell me what you need in our House to care daily for braces ?
will it hurt ? no i don't know what type she will get yet
what can she eat after there fitted ?
and please don't tell me to leave it to her bio mother because she not about i am the mum
this is just before she had her teeth pulled out
this is just after it was a few months ago i may try to get a photo of her teeth tonight
ok here xray was kinda like this is not her real xray but it what it looked like on the computer screen

My daughter got braces when she was 8 as well and didn't have any trouble adjusting and really didn't complain of pain too much. She needed wax occasionally and it's a good idea to have her put some in her back pack so she can have it at school. My daughter also liked to have a little brace cleaner thing with her to make sure she didn't have any food stuck in her braces. Have her brush very often and also use a mouth rinse to help flush things out. We also got my daughter an electric tooth brush and this helped her to brush more thoroughly.
