General Braces Care

You must know how to maintain your braces properly throughout your orthodontic treatment. Take care of your braces after every meal to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Oral hygiene routines such as brushing and flossing, as well as regular visits to the dentist for cleanings, are also highly recommended.
Brushing
Brushing your teeth for two minutes daily after every meal with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride-containing toothpaste is essential. An electric or manual toothbrush works well in cleaning your teeth when properly used. When you brush, include the inside and outside surfaces of your teeth with small, gentle circular motions. Pay attention to the areas around your brackets. Brush the chewing surfaces of the teeth and the inside surfaces of the front teeth with short, gentle back-and-forth motions.
Flossing

Slide the floss back and forth between each set of teeth gently. Floss the sides of each tooth beneath the gum line to remove plaque and food particles. Repeat this process until you have flossed all of your teeth. Flossing is essential for oral hygiene and can help to promote healthy gums and reduce your risk of cavities and other dental problems.

Playing Sports

We recommend using mouthguards when playing contact sports to avoid damage and protect your teeth and gums from accidents that may occur during physical activities. In case of an emergency, contact our office immediately.

Eating With Braces

Choose a softer diet to reduce chewing and discomfort during your first couple of days wearing braces. Throughout your treatment, you need to avoid eating hard and sticky food. Take extra care to avoid any possible damage to your appliances.

Emergency Care

Although orthodontic emergencies are rare, we are committed to providing immediate assistance and help to our patients in case they occur.

As a general rule, when you experience severe pain or a painful appliance problem, call us immediately. Our staff will immediately schedule an appointment to resolve your problem.
You may be able to avoid problems by taking action before arriving at our office. If there is a loose piece that you can remove, place it in a plastic bag or envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment.
After you have relieved your discomfort, it is important that you contact our office to schedule a time to repair the problem. Allowing your appliance to be damaged for an extended period of time may cause problems with your treatment.

If an orthodontic emergency arises where the patient is in pain after hours, please contact our office immediately.
