Regular appointments for your braces are necessary because the elastic ties holding your wires in place stretch and weaken over time. Dr. Bari or another provider at KRB Dentistry adjusts the wires and creates the proper pressure to correct your dental issues.
During your adjustment appointments, Dr. Bari evaluates the progress made by your teeth and recommends changes to improve the outcome of your treatment plan. It’s imperative to wear the elastics provided to attain the proper results.
It’s important to take care of your teeth and gums when you wear braces. Be sure to take the time to brush your teeth and floss regularly, especially after every meal, because food gets stuck in your braces and encourages the buildup of plaque. Flossing after meals helps get rid of food particles jammed between your teeth, stuck in the wiring, or on the brackets of your braces.
You should also skip any sticky, chewy, or hard foods and wear a mouthguard to avoid damage to your braces or teeth while participating in sports.
