hello after the braces treatment you need to visit a dentist every 3 weeks and maintenance is required. better not to plan now. you can do it after the child is 1.5 year because it needs time and dedication.

Braces as such doesn't affect labour pain but good oral hygiene maintenance is necessary.. With regards Dr Bala Orthodontist Kilpauk-Chennai
