Do They Put You To Sleep For Braces

Talk: Speak frankly with your dentist: no one needs braces, but many people would benefit from orthodontic correction. Ask your dentist for a referral to an orthodontist, and be truthful about why you feel you need them. As an adult, you can make the decision to have treatment, no matter how mild or severe the problems are.See 3 more doctor answers

Don't sleep with it.: In general, if you are using a knee brace just for a little support or comfort throughout the day, you should take it off to go to sleep, so that you don't constrict your circulation.

Depends: You may want to discuss this with your doctor. In most cases, the brace is known as a 23 hour brace meaning you wear it all times except for showering etc. There are other types of braces and in my patients with mild curves that are not likely to progress I let my ptients wear them less. Thnk you for your question.
