Maintaining your clear braces

Ceramic clear braces are rapidly becoming one of the most popular choices for people looking for orthodontic treatment. They are nearly invisible, made of a clear material that is almost impossible to see. To make them even less noticeable, Maduke-Bulat is starting to use a new 3M wire tie that is tooth-coloured. They are the perfect solution for people who need braces but don’t want people to know they’re wearing them.

Maintaining your clear braces is now a lot like maintaining regular braces. There are certain adjustments in your daily routine that you have to make. Here are a few things that are necessary to keep your braces working for you. Any damage to the braces will slow down the alignment process and increase the number of trips to your orthodontist.

Watch what you eat
Certain foods can easily get stuck in the wires, such as chewing gum or sticky candy. Hard, crunchy food can also cause damage, possibly breaking something loose. So stay away from hard candy and chewing on things like ice. In fact, anything you put into your mouth can also cause damage. People who like to chew on pens and pencils have to stop after they get braces.

Brush gently but thoroughly
With braces on, there are more places for food to get stuck and cause decay. It’s also a little more difficult to get to the hard-to-reach places in your mouth because of the braces. So take some extra time, use a floss threader, always use mouthwash containing fluoride, and clean your teeth the best you can.
