What You Should Know Before You Get Braces

Posted on 2/20/2023 by Rendon Orthodontics
What You Should Know Before You Get BracesCongratulations on moving forward with getting perfectly straight that will be properly spaced and will have an amazing bite. If you or someone you know is about to get braces, there are some tips you need to know before you begin your journey with braces.

Say Goodbye to Some Foods

If you are getting braces, there are some foods you really shouldn't eat while you are wearing them because you run the risk of breaking your brackets or wires. You need to avoid eating anything hard that requires you to bite down into them, such as steak, apples, and corn on the cob. If you want to eat these foods, break them into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Second, you need to avoid sticky food, because you run the risk the food will foul up your brackets and wires and break them. While you may miss these foods, just know that you'll be able to eat them again after your braces come off.

Learn to Brush and Floss Your Braces Well

One of the hardest aspects of braces to adapt to is making sure your braces are clean. First, you need to thoroughly brush your teeth after each meal. That's because if you don't really brush your teeth well, food can become trapped in the brackets. You can develop cavities in your teeth underneath your brackets, which means when you have your braces taken off, the dentists will have a lot of teeth to fill in. In some cases, you may have to have restorative dentistry to clean up your teeth. You need to be sure you have flossers that reach underneath your brackets to pull out any trapped food. The cleaner your teeth are, the harder it will be for cavities to get started.

Help Your Teeth Out

If you have recently gotten braces, there are things you can do to help your teeth. One of the best ways you can help keep your teeth healthy and strong is to continue to eat a healthy diet. Also, you need to come in to see the dentist each time you have an appointment. When you schedule your appointment, be sure and mention that you wear braces.

Thanks to these helpful hints, you will be ready for your perfect teeth.
