Smile-Care Tips Following the Removal of Braces

Posted May 11, 2016

If you want your orthodontic treatment in [city], [state], to be worth your time and money, it’s best to care for your smile after your braces have been removed. If you don’t care for your smile, there is a high chance that your teeth will move back into their improper positions and you may even suffer from major dental issues.

To help you properly care for your teeth and gums following orthodontic treatment so you can maintain the beauty and health of your smile, our [practice_name] team recommends doing the following things:

-Follow instructions and wear your retainer as recommended. If you fail to do so, your chompers can slide back into their original positions and your treatment will have been for nothing.

-If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, please wait at least a month. Your teeth might still be sensitive from the braces, so it’s best to give them time to recover.

-Don’t immediately rush out and binge on the crunchy and chewy foods that were discouraged during your treatment. Your teeth are very sensitive, so eating these foods will not be a pleasant experience.

-Schedule a dental cleaning. This is an important step because there are areas of your smile that have been neglected during your orthodontic treatment. The appointment will allow your dental team to thoroughly and deeply clean your mouth.

To learn more about smile care following the removal of your braces, please call [phone] today and talk to your orthodontist, Dr. [doctor_name], or a member of our friendly team. We are more than happy to give you the information you need to take full advantage of your orthodontic treatment. We look forward to hearing from you!
