Have you recently "braced" your teeth?

 

If you have been to an Orthodontist (dentist) recently and have undergone the procedure of adding braces to your teeth then you already are more aware of dental care than the majority of people in India. We often forget how important it is to correct malaligned teeth for our overall health.

 

Here are some tips to manage your braces with ease:

 

  • Meal Time: Dentists swear by Orthodontic Wax and there is a good reason for that. It prevents you from hurting yourself because of your newly braced teeth. Do remember to take proper instructions from your dentist about how to use the wax and make sure you don’t eat before rinsing it off.

  • Brushing Time: Since solid food will ‘for sure’ stick to your teeth it is necessary to clean your them and braces properly with Fluoride containing toothpaste and mouthwash. Hold the brush at about a 45-degree angle from your gum and brush in gentle circular motions. 

  • Flossing Time: Flossing is definitely a pain when it comes to braced teeth, you may try using waxed floss for easy gliding or interdental brushes that clean the debris. One may also choose a good water flosser that produces a narrow stream of water to help with the process of flossing.

  • Doctor Visit Time: Getting braces doesn't mean it’s enough to visit an Orthodontist once in a while. The Orthodontic dentist will check your braces and alignment but your overall oral health also needs to be checked periodically.
