Amongst the many cosmetic dental procedures, braces are the most popular. Braces have proven to be one of the easiest ways to achieve straight and beautiful teeth. Majority of Americans prefer braces as they are more reliable. If you're getting dental braces in Sacramento or you have questions and concerns on what you should expect, read on to find out!

If you live in Sacramento, California and are looking to get braces, visit Global Smiles where Dr. Lilliana Stojic practices.

What are Braces?

Braces are the best option for straightening teeth. Braces are easier to maintain and effective. On the other hand, there are also clear braces in Sacramento, which is commonly known as Invisalign aligners. Unlike traditional braces, clear braces are much more comfortable and transparent. You can opt for either of them but you must consult your dentist and find what suits your dental needs best.

Do braces hurt?

One of the most commonly asked questions while getting braces is: "Do braces hurt?". The answer to that is no; they do not hurt, so do not be anxious at all. At times, you can experience either soreness or discomfort which can last for a few days.

What can I expect while getting braces?

On the day of the treatment, you would not feel even the slightest bit of pain. Once the braces have been fitted onto your teeth it can take longer for you to eat your meals. It can even be laborious for you to chew because your teeth can start to feel more sensitive. Your dentist would advise you to be on a soft or liquid food diet to reduce the pressure and discomfort on your teeth.

Once the braces have been placed on your teeth, it can be a little uncomfortable. This is because your teeth will start realigning themselves with the pressure of the elastic rubber ties and wires. The dentists at Global Smiles will apply a substance over the braces to relieve you of the pain and also direct you to consume certain medicines. After a week you will start to notice that pain has reduced drastically and you can start consuming normal food. Make sure the foods you consume are friendly to your braces.

Patient Testimonials

Beautiful office, friendly staff, terrific dental care.

by Trevor Derrett

Had a great visit today and got to know the people that work there. They made me feel comfortable as the change of ownership is taking place.

by Bonnie Schrader

I am so impressed with the entire experience. From the friendly reminders, to entering the office, and especially the dentist! My previous dentist Stephen C Ott, DDS, was incredible. I had the benefits of his gift since 1971. I was worried about finding a new dentist. However, I was blessed to have Dr. Ott recommend his dentist: Dr. Lillian Stojic. I recommend her to all!!!

Dr. Lilliana and her staff make getting teeth cleaned and a cavity filled as good an experience as possible. They get the job done with minimal pain and discomfort.

I just had a visit to Dr. Stojic's office. My ten year old daughter had an infected tooth that had to be extracted. She was so nervous and scared at the possibility of an extraction. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by her office manager and then by her equally kind assistant who brought us back to her room...

Dr. Lilliana and her staff are not only effective and efficient, but they also remove my anxiety. When I had to have a root canal, I was nervous about the pain. I was given the choice of Nitrous oxide gas and that calmed me.

by Gail M.

Dr. Stojic saw two of my children. The youngest was so comforted by her easygoing and confident demeanor that he was the quietest and most still 4 year old I've seen in a dentist chair! Our older son was very afraid of the dentist and has been to a couple other dentists who were unable to treat him because of his scared behavior. Dr. Stojic was very patient and helped him understand what she was doing at every step, which calmed him down so she was able to fill his cavities and even extract a tooth. We were thoroughly impressed with Dr. Stojic and her office and staff.
