Hello doctor,

Today is my fourth day of braces, so I was just wondering when my blue fillings will be removed. The blue fillings purpose is to prevent me from biting down on the braces, but when will they get removed? Also, when will I feel comfortable biting down on my fillings, since my teeth are sore and it hurts, or when will I get actually to chew since I can only swallow?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Blue fillings or bites are removed when your teeth are better aligned, and deep bite (if present) is improved or corrected enough to prevent interference of upper teeth to lower braces. It takes a while to get used to the blue bites, usually 7 to 14 days. However, chewing continues to be less effective for longer. It is advisable to eat soft foods and supplement with nutritious juices and smoothies.
