Do you have braces? Are you feeling a little unsure about things as an adult orthodontics patient but you really want to succeed? No worries! Keep a few things in mind that will help guide you through successful treatment when it comes to maintaining your oral health (and your optimism) and you’ll be enjoying your beautiful, straight smile in no time.
#1: You Still Really Need Cleanings And Checkups
You might figure that with braces on your teeth, it’s probably best to just stay home and avoid dental cleanings and checkups until your braces are off. The truth is, you really need our help to keep your oral health on track. It’s easy for food and plaque to become trapped around brackets (and it’s more difficult for you to clean your smile). Don’t skip your essential prevention!
#2: We Can Help You With Home Care Tips
Yes, it’s more challenging to clean your smile. However, your oral health doesn’t have to suffer. This can become very easy to do once you have all of the tips you need. Ask for help! It will make an impact.
#3: You Made A Fantastic Choice
Are you starting to regret ever getting braces? Did it sound great to you but now that you’re in the thick of it, you’re not too thrilled with the day-to-day experience? We strongly advise you to put on a happy face and remember that as long as you’re keeping your smile clean and your oral health safe, your experience will be just fine and you can look forward to:
- A smile that looks better
- A dramatic decrease in your chance of ending up with bruxism or TMJ disorder
- You won’t end up with damaged teeth due to rubbing from misalignment
- Easier hygiene for a healthier smile
