Tips on Caring for Your Braces During Orthodontic Treatment

  1. 1. Tips On Caring For Your Braces During Orthodontic Treatment It is important to take special care of your teeth after getting your braces. This will ensure that your teeth will be in your top-notch condition after your orthodontic treatment is completed. Here we have a few tips that will help you undergo a successful treatment.  Make sure that you floss twice a day as this will help in cleaning the entire mouth properly, especially the areas that the toothbrush might have missed otherwise.  Brushing after every meal using fluoride toothpaste with gentle, soft strokes will help you in keeping the mouth clean especially when you have braces on your teeth.  Instead of using an ordinary toothbrush, you must make use of an interdentally toothbrush that can help clean the hard to reach areas under wires.  During the orthodontic treatment, when you are in the phase of making use of elastics, you must remove them only before eating or brushing your teeth, otherwise elastics should be worn permanently.  Wearing elastics all the time, except brushing and eating is important, but wearing elastics of accurate size is as important as they prevent your teeth from going back to their original position.  In case you experience any damage to your appliance, you must immediately consult the dentist you are taking your treatment from.  Make sure you avoid hard, sticky, chewy or sour foods, including gum, caramel, nuts, chips or hard candies while undergoing this treatment as these can loosen, break or bend the wires and bands of the appliance.
