Protect and Optimize Your Smile While Wearing Braces

Caring for Braces

If you need braces for kids or adults, there are more cost-effective options available today than ever before. However, your affordable braces need a little help from you to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Wearing braces requires an adjustment period and a willingness to practice good oral hygiene, use proper dental care products, and watch what you eat. Here are a few tips to help you protect your winning smile.

Practice Good Dental Care

Keeping your teeth and braces clean is essential for preventing gum inflammation and permanent damage to tooth enamel. You have a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease while you wear braces because the nooks and crannies in the brackets and wires can easily trap food. If you wear elastics, remove them before brushing. Use an ADA-recommended toothpaste and a soft, compact brush, brushing in a circular motion. Gently brush your braces, applying enough pressure to allow bristles to spread into the gaps between the wires and teeth. Brush inside and outside the tooth surfaces and under the wires, floss, and rinse with a mouthwash.

Use Proper Dental Care Products

Your orthodontist may recommend cleaning aids and other products to help you keep your mouth healthy and prevent tooth discoloration and decay, such as floss threaders, interdental brushes, antiseptic rinses, and topical oral pain relievers. Maintain strict dental care habits, adjust your diet, and follow your family orthodontic expert’s recommendations carefully. Your beautiful new smile is worth the extra effort.

Watch What You Eat

You should avoid these foods while you’re wearing braces:

  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Plums
  • Corn on the cob
  • Tomatoes
  • Cherries
  • Gum
  • Chewing ice
  • Soda or diet soda
  • Caramels
  • Hard breads and bagels
  • Salsa and pickles
  • Barbecue sauces
  • Vinegar-based dressings
