Braces aren’t just about improving your smile, but also your bite and overall oral health. And while the team at 32Smiles Dental Clinic, under the expert guidance of Dr. Milind Darda, ensures the best braces application, it’s crucial for you to take proper care of them. So, how do you keep those braces clean and stay on track for that perfect smile?
Why Is Braces Care Important?
Every orthodontic treatment aims to give you a perfect smile, but without proper care, braces can become a hotspot for food and bacteria. Proper care ensures faster, effective results and prevents issues like cavities, gum disease, and staining. On the flip side, neglect could extend treatment time. Doesn’t sound fun, right?
The Basics of Braces Care
Brushing and flossing might feel a tad trickier with braces. Aim to brush after every meal. This minimizes the risk of food getting stuck and bacteria buildup. And floss? Yes, it’s possible, even with braces. Floss threaders can be a game-changer.
Remember those caramel candies or popcorn you love? Sadly, with braces, they’re a no-go. Sticky, hard, or chewy foods can damage braces components. Instead, embrace softer foods and avoid biting into things with your front teeth.
Tools for Braces Care
These have a V-shaped bristle design perfect for cleaning around braces. Using one can make a massive difference in your oral hygiene routine.
Tiny brushes that can get into tight spaces, ensuring not a speck of food remains.
Got a poking wire or a rough spot? This wax can be a lifesaver, offering relief by creating a smooth surface.
Tips for Braces Comfort
Managing Discomfort After Adjustment:
After adjustments, it’s natural to feel some discomfort. Cold foods and over-the-counter pain relievers can be your best friends during these times.
Dealing with Braces Emergencies:
A broken bracket or a poking wire while you’re out? Temporary fixes like orthodontic wax or a piece of silicone can help till your next dental appointment.
