Care for Braces in Denver, CO

Oral Hygiene

In order to ensure your orthodontic treatment, such as braces, is successful, it’s imperative that you make sure you’re maintaining an oral care routine at home. Also, braces require regular check-ups and adjustments to guarantee the treatment is working and progressing, so make these appointments a priority. During your visits, Dietmeier Orthodontics will give you the tools and techniques to ensure that you are able to stay on top of your oral health.

Foods to Avoid

There are many foods you come into contact with on a regular basis that you need to avoid while wearing braces. You want to steer clear of hard and crunchy foods, such as ice, nuts, and popcorn; these foods can actually break your braces. Also, try to avoid anything overly chewy, such as gum and other chewy candies because they have a tendency to get stuck on the hardware.

Here at Dietmeier Orthodontics we know there is a lot to remember when it comes to maintaining your oral health while wearing braces. Remember, if you have any questions regarding care for your braces, visit us in Denver and we’ll be more than happy to assist.
