Fitting Braces into Your Life


Fitting Braces into Your Life
Fitting Braces into Your Life
When you’re wearing braces, there are a few things you’ll have to adjust to get the optimal results in the shortest amount of time. If you have any questions about the “do’s and don’ts” of living with braces, feel free to ask our team at your next appointment.
Eating
When you have braces, there are a few types of foods that can damage your brackets and bend your wires, leading you to more appointments and longer treatment times. By simply avoiding sticky, chewy, crunchy, and hard foods, as well as foods like corn on the cob, your orthodontic experience will be smoother and will help prevent unnecessary emergency visits.
Cleaning
Maintaining a clean mouth takes focused attention, more so when you are undergoing orthodontic care. You’ll never believe the amount of food that can get lodged between your braces when you eat. Plaque buildup as a result of poor brushing and flossing habits can cause bad breath, or worse, tooth decay! It is so important to brush your teeth after every meal and floss every day. It may seem like a hassle, but it will all be worth it in the end!
Sports
Protecting your smile if you play sports is essential when you have braces, and mouthguards are an ideal solution to protecting your teeth and gums from injury. Some mouthguards work better than others when you’re wearing braces, so check with our team first. We can advise you on the right mouthguard if you plan on participating in any kind of contact sport.
Following these tips throughout your treatment will help ensure you get the results you want from your treatment in a timely manner. If you have any questions, please give our office a call. We are here to help!

  1. Having braces fitted is really not a big deal for me. Especially knowing that it helps align my teeth's and providing it support for any activity. I know a Dentist in Auburn CA who offers great orthodontic treatments and braces.

  3. My daughter needs to get braces but she is nervous about it. We just moved and she doesn't want to start at a new school with braces. Do you know of any orthodontist in Glen Ellyn, IL that could do invisalign or something like that?

  4. I don't personally know any orthodontists in Glen Ellyn, IL but you could go to www.invisalign.com and do a doctor search by zip code to find a provider in your area. You can also ask for a referral from your dentist in the area if you have one.

  7. The only braces that worked for me were invisalign braces. I thought I would never be able to have straight teeth. I am so glad that I was proven wrong by professionals.

  8. I use to play a lot of basketball when I was younger. The hardest part was when I had braces. I would get hit in the face and the brackets would make my mouth bleed. The orthodontist gave me a mouth piece to wear and that helped a lot. http://www.marorthodontics.ca/locations/edmonton-office/

  9. I think that dental care is very important at every stage of life. My son is in need of braces. I've been looking at some different options, because I want him to have the best. Hopefully I find a good place for him to get them done.
