Easter is a wonderful holiday full of Easter egg hunts, yummy treats and family time. You don’t want to put a damper on your day by suffering problems with your braces, do you? Well, our orthodontist, Dr. Richard Barnett, is happy to help you avoid braces issues as much as possible on Easter. To help you, he encourages you to do the following things:
-Avoid chewy and sticky candies: Chewy and sticky candies can break your appliance by pulling the brackets off the teeth and even bending the wires. They can also cling to the teeth and braces and promote dental issues, like cavities. So, please stick to more braces-friendly treats.
-Wear a mouthguard: Sometimes Easter egg hunts require the use of a mouthguard, especially if there is money involved. Some people become vicious when searching for treasure, so it’s best to protect your smile and braces with a mouthguard so you don’t suffer injuries when you suffer a blow to the face.
-Clean your smile and appliance: Make sure to brush and floss your teeth and braces regularly throughout the day, like after each meal and snack. This can help you maintain a top-notch smile and appliance as well as help you avoid dental problems.
