Maintenance of appliances
To optimize the effects of orthodontic treatment, you must have good oral hygiene and take care of your appliances.
It is easy to take off the housings, deform or break the wires.
Some foods can damage and affect its operation.
Hard or very sticky foods should be avoided. In addition, do not put in your mouth objects that you would like to chew (pencils, nails …) and do not open plastic bags with your teeth!
Oral hygiene must also be optimal during orthodontic treatment. To avoid developing dental plaque, cavities, and gum inflammation, brushing and flossing must be done after each meal. As appliances make cleaning more difficult, the use of specialized orthodontic brushes is essential.
Good habits will keep your devices in good condition and make the treatment more effective.
