What are possible inconveniencies related to orthodontic treatment and orthognatic surgery?

During orthodontic treatment due to irregular surface of braces and numerous undercuts, dental plaque and food debris tend to accumulate faster and takes longer time to clean. Therefore, excellent oral hygiene is essential to all patients. It is mandatory although not very easy to find a minute after every single meal to clean around braces, but with time this remarkable habit makes a benefit. People should not be afraid of wearing braces, as nowadays braces are associated with the attitude towards healthy lifestyle and prosperity of life. Moreover, people who seek for better appearance receive positive feedback from peers in social life. There is an inconvenience in food consumption one to two months after operation, as chewing of any hard food is strictly forbidden. People usually return to their routine life after two months. Up to six months after operation there is a chance of numbness in the lower lip (similar to but weaker than the one which occurs after injection of anaesthetic agent prior to tooth removal). It may cause some inconvenience in public, if crop of food or saliva remains unnoticed during dinner due to reduced sensation of the lower lip.
