Unmasking Orthodontic Myths: Brace Yourself for the Truth!

At Fravel Brewer Orthodontics, we often address common questions from patients undergoing treatment fo braces in Orlando. Braces often find themselves wrapped in a web of orthodontic myths and misconceptions, causing unnecessary anxiety among those considering treatment. Let’s embark on a myth-busting journey to set the record straight, all while sharing a chuckle or two along the way!


Myth: Braces Attract Radio Signals

Fact Check: Sorry, but your braces won’t turn you into a human antenna. Braces are made of non-metallic materials, so you won’t be picking up any radio waves. Leave the signal boosting to your phone!

Myth: Brace Face Forever

Fact Check: Contrary to the popular belief that braces are a lifetime commitment, most treatments last around 1-2 years. So, brace yourself for a temporary journey towards a lifetime of smiles!

Myth: Braces Are Magnet Magnets

Fact Check: Your braces won’t attract magnets or disrupt airport security. You won’t need to worry about setting off metal detectors—your smile is airport-friendly!

Myth: Brace Pain Equals Gain

Fact Check: While some discomfort is normal after adjustments, it’s not a “no pain, no gain” situation. Think of it as your teeth getting accustomed to their new, beautiful positions. Ice cream can be your ally in this process!

Myth: Braces Are Only for Teens

Fact Check: Braces are not exclusive to teens! Adults are embracing orthodontic treatment more than ever. It’s never too late to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of, no matter your age.



Braces may seem mysterious, but the orthodontic myths surrounding them are just tales of fiction. Say goodbye to misconceptions and hello to a brighter, straighter smile! Remember, orthodontic treatment is a journey filled with progress, not a mythical maze.
