If you want a successful Easter holiday this year, then you need to keep your braces in mind. This is because if you don’t care for your braces, they can suffer the consequences. This can take you off the track toward your dream smile. So, it’s best to do all you can to care for your braces and avoid problems this Easter. To help you do so, our orthodontist, Dr. Ara Goshgarian, encourages you to do the following things:
-Avoid chewy and sticky candies: As you have probably already guessed, chewy and sticky candies can pull your brackets from your teeth and even bend and break the wires. They can also cling to your braces and promote cavities. So, it’s recommended to avoid these candies altogether and stick to more braces-friendly candies.
-Wear a mouthguard: Sometimes Easter egg hunts require the use of a mouthguard, especially if there is money involved. Some people become vicious when searching for treasure, so it’s best to protect your smile and braces with a mouthguard so you don’t suffer injuries when you suffer a blow to the face.
-Clean your smile and appliance: Keeping your teeth, gums and braces clean and pristine can keep them in tip-top shape and can help you prevent cavities. So, make sure to brush and floss your teeth and braces regularly, like after each time you eat.
