Life with braces is only temporary, but the results can last a lifetime. The best way to achieve a smile you love is by taking special care of your dental health while undergoing orthodontic treatment
Regardless of wearing orthodontic appliances, individuals should continuously monitor their sugar intake. An excess of sugar can lead to tooth decay and other dental complications. Limiting the amount of sugar you consume is effective, but there are other ways to maintain your dental health with braces.
Brush your teeth after every meal to ensure you remove any lingering food particles that may have gotten stuck in your braces. Pack a braces care kit with a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, floss, and dental wax to carry with you at all times. This way, whether you are at a friend’s house, happy hour with coworkers, or trick-or-treating with friends, you have access to the necessary tools to practice oral hygiene habits.
