How Do Braces Work?
Orthodontics Step-by-Step What Patients Can Expect
Traditional orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from six months to a year or more, depending on the severity of your misalignment.
Caring for Your Teeth with Braces
Patients with braces must be diligent with their oral hygiene practices. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice each day, if not after every meal. You can brush your teeth and braces just as you would without braces. You will still need to floss daily, and it may be helpful to use a floss threader. If you do not properly care for your teeth and braces, there is an increased risk of gum disease and permanent staining to your teeth.
It is also important to avoid certain foods that can cause damage to your braces. During your traditional orthodontic treatment, you should avoid foods such as nuts, popcorn, chewing gum, caramel, taffy, corn on the cob, and other hard foods. Certain foods can be modified for easier consumption. For example, corn can be removed from the cob.
