Make Braces Fit into Your Life

When you get braces at Wired Orthodontics there are a few things you’ll have to adjust to get optimal results in the shortest amount of time. If you have any questions about the “do’s and don’ts” of living with braces, feel free to ask Dr. Nalbandian or any member of our Wired Orthodontics team during your next adjustment!

When you have braces there are a few types of food that can damage your brackets and bend your wires leading to more appointments and longer treatment times. Any foods that have hard insides, like fruit pits, or meat on bones, cut into pieces and chew on your back teeth; with braces, that is the best way to “eat” them. By simply avoiding sticky, chewy, crunchy, and hard foods, your orthodontic treatment will be much easier with fewer “emergencies.” So make sure to avoid certain foods with braces!

You’ll never believe the amount of food that can get stuck between your braces when you eat! In addition to causing bad breath and tooth decay, it looks pretty gross. It’s so important to brush your teeth after every meal and floss every day. It may be a hassle, but it’ll all be worth it in the end when you show off your bright, healthy smile. It is a hassle to learn the new routine but worth it in the quality of your tooth enamel and gums when we are done.

Protecting your smile when you play sports is essential whether you have braces or not. Mouth guards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. The team at Wired Orthodontics can provide a mouth guard that will promote tooth movement while in treatment. After treatment we can create a custom mouth guard, fit just for you, that can last years if you plan on participating further in any sport!
