What To Expect When You’re Getting Your Braces On

During your first appointment, Dr. Kassman will place your new braces. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our Kassman orthodontics team will be with you every step of the way to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.

What To Expect When Your Braces Are Removed (Retainers After Braces)

Your treatment does not end when your braces are removed. Now that you have your beautiful new smile, special care must be taken to keep it that way. Retainers hold your teeth in their new, correct positions after your teeth have been straightened. Your orthodontist will instruct you on how to care for your retainer and how long you must wear your retainer. Wearing your retainer as directed is crucial to prevent regression of your orthodontic treatment.

Care & Maintenance With Your Braces

Brushing Your Braces

When you have braces, brushing your teeth after every meal keeps your teeth and gums healthy throughout your treatment. Patients who do not keep their teeth clean may require more frequent visits to the dentist for a professional cleaning.

It is imperative to brush your teeth after every meal when you have braces.


Flossing With Braces & Orthodontics

When you have braces and orthodontics, it’s not only important to brush after every meal; you must also floss three times a day.

Follow the steps below to floss your teeth while wearing braces:

Step 1. Using a piece of floss about 18 inches long, carefully thread the end between braces and wire. You may find a floss threader helpful.

Step 2. Carefully floss around the braces.

Foods To Avoid With Braces

With braces, you need to take special care to avoid any foods that could damage your braces. For the first day or so, stick to soft foods. Avoid tough meats, hard breads and raw vegetables with braces. Before long, you’ll be able to bite a cucumber again. But you’ll need to protect your orthodontic appliances when you eat for as long as you’re wearing braces. The first thing you must learn to do is to cut up your food into small pieces and use your back teeth for chewing.

Use the following list of foods to avoid as a guide to what you should not eat while wearing braces:

  • Chewy foods — bagels, licorice
  • Crunchy foods — popcorn, chips, ice
  • Sticky foods — caramel candies, chewing gum
  • Hard foods — nuts, hard candies
  • Foods that require biting into — corn on the cob, apples, carrots

Playing Sports & Instruments With Braces

Game, Set, Match — we have great news for athletes! You can still play sports even while undergoing orthodontic treatment! If you do play sports, it’s recommended that you wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and your appliance. Let your doctor know if you need help finding the right mouth guard for the best protection.

In case of a sports emergency, be sure to immediately check your mouth and appliance for damage. If you notice any loose teeth or appliance damage, please contact our office right away. You can temporarily relieve the discomfort by applying wax or rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater.

Soreness & Loose Teeth With Braces

When you first get your braces, you may notice that your teeth and mouth feel a little tender or sore. This is perfectly normal and we promise your mouth will not be sore forever! To relieve the pain, we recommend dissolving one teaspoon of salt in eight ounces of lukewarm water. Swish and gargle this solution in your mouth for just a couple of minutes (do not swallow the saltwater).

If the pain is more severe and does not go away after rinsing, you can also try taking a pain reliever. It is also not uncommon for your lips, cheeks and tongue to become irritated for one to two weeks as they toughen and become used to the braces. We would be happy to give you some wax that you can put over the braces to lessen the tenderness. If you need some wax, please let us know.

If your teeth begin feeling a little loose, don’t worry; this is normal! Your braces must first loosen your teeth to move them into the right position. Once your teeth have been repositioned, they will no longer be loose.
