Oral Hygiene for Those with Braces

Caring for Braces

Wearing braces is something that some people dread, but the fact is that a short-term sacrifice really can produce incredible outcomes. Once the braces come off, you will have a smile that others will truly envy. However, to make certain that your teeth are not only pretty but also healthy, you owe it to yourself to brush up on the following dental care tips recommended by family orthodontics experts for those with braces.

You have to spend a little more time and effort on your dental care when you wear braces. Braces can trap food particles that lead to bacteria, plaque, tooth decay, and bad breath. You need to brush and floss thoroughly every day, watch what you eat, and schedule routine appointments with your orthodontist.

Be sure to limit acidic foods and beverages that can damage your tooth enamel. Although some acidic foods are nutritious, they are not the best choices while you are wearing braces. Instead of apples, oranges, or peaches, snack on melon or bananas. Rather than fruit juice, drink milk or water. Limit starchy foods such as potatoes, which stick to the teeth, allowing bacteria to develop.

Consider the hardness and texture of the foods you eat. Tough meats, nuts, hard breads, and raw carrots can damage your braces, and chewy, sticky candy such as caramels should be avoided. If your braces get damaged, repairs will be inconvenient, expensive, and delay the completion of your orthodontic treatment.

Thorough home dental care is vital while wearing braces. Brushing and flossing your teeth, as well as every section of your braces is essential. Special brushes and other tools are available to make the process easier.

Taking care avoid damage to your orthodontics, strict dental care, and regular visits to your orthodontist for adjustments will ensure that you get the results you want from your braces.
