15 Apr Do I need to treat my braces with special care?
Patients should brush their teeth at least two times each day . We will show each patient how to floss their teeth with braces and may also provide a prescription for a special fluoride, if necessary.
Once treatment begins, we will explain the complete instructions and provide a comprehensive list of foods to avoid. Some of those foods include: ice, hard candy, raw vegetables and all sticky foods (i.e. caramel and taffy). You can avoid most emergency appointments to repair broken or damaged braces by carefully following our instructions.
