The adhesive used to attach the braces to your teeth cures rapidly, but takes several hours to completely cure. You can eat any time after leaving our office, however, we ask that you remember the list of foods that may be harmful to your braces. Until you become accustomed to eating with your new braces, you may find it beneficial to follow a diet consisting of all soft foods.
Initially, the braces feel like they stick out. This is normal. As you become accustomed to your braces and tooth alignment improves, this sensation will cease to be a concern. Although the brackets have been rounded and smoothed, until the cheek tissues have toughened, you may find it helpful to use a small piece of orthodontic wax around the bracket that is creating the irritation.
You will probably notice some discomfort beginning a few hours after your braces are placed. Some teeth, usually the front teeth, may be tender and sensitive to pressure. Most patients have some soreness beginning during the first few hours and dissipating within a day or two. Exactly when the discomfort ceases is impossible to predict and differs with each patient. Non-prescription pain remedies are recommended for discomfort.
We believe each patient deserves personalized attention, a complete understanding of your treatment decisions, and the best orthodontic care available.READ MORE

I highly recommend Caponera Orthodontics. Dr. Caponera and staff are not only professional; they are attentive, compassionate, thorough and patient. My daughter's orthodontic work is impeccable and she has the beautiful smile to prove it!Gwen Barnick
I had my braces on for a little over 2 years and I couldn't be happier with my results! They're super friendly and worked with me even though I was away for school. Extremely professional but makes you feel like family. Thank you for my new smile!Ayanna-Mone Arnold
Dr. Caponera is the BEST around. My teeth had a lot of spacing, before going to Dr. Caponera, but after 2 years of braces my teeth now look great! Dr. Caponera worked so that I would have my braces removed just in time for Christmas and I really appreciate that. The staff are all friendly and a pleasure to talk with, making each visit enjoyable.Neomaru Anderson
I always have a great experience at Dr. Caponera's office. Dr. Caponera is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I'm so happy with how he fixed my teeth before my wedding. His office is very clean, and the staff are accommodating with scheduling appointments, and even offer some days with later appointment times.Allison Dauer
Dr. Caponera is Awesome! I had the best experience with his office. I had no problems scheduling appointments, especially those emergencies. Did I mention my under-bite that has been transformed to a new, beautiful, perfectly aligned smile that I get complimented on constantly? Well, I just did!Dionne Reid
Dr. Caponera and the girls in his office are the most professional and helpful doctors office I have ever been to. I'm not easy to please but this office has always been on time, polite, clean and knowledgeable. Both of my kids have gone here and the work, the attention to detail is the best I have ever seen.Yaniv Offir
