Quick Tips for Braces Treatment
- Prepare a weekend or overnight kit complete with toothbrush, toothpaste, & floss for cleaning after meals, wax & lip balm for dry and chapped lips. This will come in handy for packing last minute.
- If you have hooks, be sure to wear your rubber bands as directed by your orthodontist. They may be uncomfortable at times, but you’ll be happy to know you’ve helped your treatment move as quickly as possible just by wearing them.
- If your bracket or wire becomes loose or broken, relax. Don’t try to bend the wire or pull it out. This can make it worse at times. Just cover any sharp edges with wax or wet cotton, & if that doesn’t work, give the staff at Perelmuter & Goldberg a call to get your problem fixed as soon as possible.
That’s all for our quick tips! If you have questions about your treatment or want to learn more about proper braces care, don’t hesitate to ask the doctors and staff at Perelmuter & Goldberg. We love helping you achieve a greater smile!
