Your Teeth with Your Braces
Brushing your teeth
becomes doubly important when it are wearing braces.
Food can easily become stuck in your braces. If this
lodged food is not removed promptly, it can end up causing
damages to both your teeth and your braces.
You may want to consider
investing in a device such as a water pick to ensure
that you are able to thoroughly clean your teeth and
braces. These water prick devices can be purchased at
nearly any discount retail outlet and they can be ordered
over the Internet and World Wide Web as well.
Quite like with your
food choices, your dentist will provide you with a description
of how you need to brush and floss your teeth when you
are wearing braces. In order to ensure your overall
oral health, it is very important that you follow these
tips and suggestions.
Your Braces and Sports
Because you run the
risk of having your mouth hit if you are involved in
sporting activities, it is very important that you wear
and appropriate oral guard if you are going to engage
in sports while wearing braces.
While it never is
a pleasant experience to get hit in the mouth with a
ball or some other object or person while engaging in
sports, such an accident can become even more serious
(and severe) when you are playing sports while wearing
braces. Significant damage can be caused to your mouth
if you have a facial or mouth injury while playing sports
while wearing braces.
Your cosmetic dentist
specialist or orthodontist can assist you in finding
the best oral guards to be used while you are playing
sports with braces on your teeth.
What to do When Injured
when Wearing Braces
If you are unfortunate
enough to become involved in an injury to your mouth
or face while wearing braces, it is very important that
you seek prompt medical attention. This must include
an appointment with your cosmetic dentistry specialist
or your orthodontist who is specifically versed in dealing
with damage to dental appliances and resulting injuries
to the mouth, gums and teeth.
