Mu daughter has had a brace which is intended to change the shape of her jaw as it continues to grow. The thing is awful for her but is removable. Problem is she wants,understandably, to take it out a lot. I can win the battle most of the time but it's hardest when she is eating as it is really uncomfortable and she is finding it almost impossible to eat with any enjoyment whatsoever.
If she were to wear it at all times but pop it out to have her meals would that have a detrimental effect on the treatment? Or should I "force" her to wear it at meal times too?
Don't know who's more upset..me or her.
Any dentist/orthodontists out there that can give me some advice?
