Caring for your braces the right way

It would take some time for you to get used to wearing braces. Initially, you might feel some discomfort wearing them, but soon that would go away. Also, braces need some maintenance and upkeep. There are some restrictions on your food and lifestyle while you are wearing braces. Consult your orthodontist to care for your braces properly.

Things to take care of
  • Consult your orthodontist at Parkland Orthodontics about the right toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash that you should use with your braces on. Plaque can accumulate on the teeth covered by braces if not cleaned properly; the right selection of oral hygiene tools can help prevent that.
  • Make sure to brush your teeth properly to remove debris caused due to food and beverages. 
  • Flossing with your braces on might be difficult, but it is essential to do it at least once a day. Ask your orthodontist the right way to floss your teeth.
  • You should invest in an oral irrigator to remove additional plaque and debris from your mouth. 
  • Finally, there will be restrictions on food when you wear braces. Follow the instructions given by your dentist in terms of diet to maintain the condition of your braces. Always avoid hard and sticky foods that might stick on your braces like nuts, gums, etc.
