Things To Be Done When You Have Braces – Shares 2023 ThreeBestRated® Orthodontist From Gatineau

Industry: Health & Fitness

Gatineau, Quebec (PRUnderground) March 6th, 2023

Whoever doesn’t want a pretty smile? Having a smile that scales up the confidence level is everyone’s wish. Unfortunately, some may lack confidence in their smile due to misaligned or crooked teeth. They will opt for braces to get their teeth straightened — which is a great option!

But, it will challenge your oral hygiene more than what it would be if you didn’t have braces. Because the braces attract more bacteria and allow the food particles to remain stuck for a longer time (which is hard to remove), it will lead to dental problems like cavities, plaque buildup, etc… Usually, everyone does follow the brushing and flossing routine, however, for an individual with braces, it needs an extra bit of care.

We spoke to Dr. Brent Cote, a 2023 ThreeBestRated® awarded orthodontist from Gatineau, QC., to explain a little bit about the right dental care for those who have opted for braces.

During The Treatment:

  • Individuals with braces, in general, are advised to brush their teeth after every meal, however, it won’t be possible if you’re at school or somewhere else. So, have mouthwash with you to kill the bacteria and bad odor, resulting from the food being stuck inside.
  • As usual brushing and flossing are not enough to clean the metals, use a water flosser and interdental brushes to clean the area to which your normal bristles couldn’t reach.
  • During the treatment, say no to hard, sugary, and sticky foods to avoid damage in the metal and plaque buildup, which paves way for other dental problems.

After The Treatment:

  • You will require a dental cleaning after removing the braces to get rid of any adhesive remainings from the teeth.
  • When the treatment is over, never forget to wear the retainers as per your orthodontist’s instruction – because the braces only straighten your teeth while the retainers will retain the teeth’s position so as to retain the new smile.
  • As the discoloration is normal after removing the braces, it is suggested and good to get your teeth whitened to remove the stain, resulting from the braces.

If you follow all these steps, you will have a pretty smile that you could be proud of – says the expert.
