When you first get braces, it’s about getting used to having something on your teeth. You have to adjust to eating and drinking differently, and it can take a little while to get used to feeling them in your mouth. But eventually, most people want to start using their braces to their full potential.
For many people, that means starting to use power chains. Power chains are a great way to straighten your teeth; they work best when you wear them for as long as possible each day. How long into wearing braces do you need to start using power chains? That depends on your specific situation, but usually, it’s best to start as soon as possible.
If you’re unsure whether power chains suit you, talk to your orthodontist. They can help you decide what’s best for your unique situation and show you how to use power chains correctly. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to get the perfect smile you’ve always wanted!
