... how to prevent from getting bony cheeks after wearing braces?
As far as I know (from experience) braces do circuitously cause bony cheeks. However, they do greatly interfere beside eating, and the resulting weightiness loss can cause that effect. Watch your diet while you hold the braces and you should be fine. You should ask a dentist.
You are going to pay your dentist a bundle for this work. Make a schedule of questions and win him/her to answer them while you are in the department. It is part of the service.
Personally...I hold never see the "bony" effect you are talking something like. People look the same..merely better...after braces!
